I am so sorry that I have had a recent blogging drought of sorts. Work has been crazy and I’ve been busy almost every night this week with something or other…. in fact, I don’t think I’ve cooked dinner since Sunday, yikes!
Our student worker is leaving us tomorrow… somethin about she’s graduating and getting married? I don’t know, I think she should stay here longer, but she doesn’t seem to agree with me…. 🙂 So, I was forced nominated to make her a cake for her party. At first I was really nervous, I haven’t made a cake “for a purpose” yet. Mainly I’ve just been playing around for family members… the pressure is on!
I developed a plan and started to work. First I placed 2 9×13 cakes side by side and tapered the edges.
A little buttercream and some decorative lines later and it’s starting to look like it’s suppossed to!
The finished product!
Here is a close up of each side:
Bride… yes that’s a baby trying to climb up the cake. 🙂 We thought it was only appropriate to add her, since that is the #1 question that newlyweds get… trust me… I know.
Here is Shalynn with her cake. Suprisingly, we really suprised her with the party!
Oh yea, if you are in a hurry to dry fondant…. DON’T USE A FOOD DEHYDRATOR! I read that it would work on a popular cake site and this is what I came home too…. 😥 Yes, those are remnants of the first rings and something that dripped through from an upper deck.
