Been playing around in the kitchen alot this summer.... I made this for a 3-year-old Princess. It was the only the second cake I had made for someone other than "family", so needless to say, I was a little nervous.
I made this cake for a friend's daughter in June. Her theme was a flip-flop party, so I made her a flip-flop cake. The flowers and flip-flops were made of gumpaste and the entire cake was covered in buttercream and a layer of fondant.
Another friend asked me to make a baby shower cake. That was uncharted territory for me. Up to this point, I had only done birthday cakes. I had a picture of one I was dying to try, but didn't think it was actually possible for me to make it. I was happy with how mine turned out, but I'll tell you...about two hours into it, I was kicking myself for agreeing to do it!! The "belly" was made out of a half-ball pan and the "boobs" were made out of rice krispy treats. It was covered with buttercream and a layer of marshmallow fondant.
Anna's birthday is August 1, but she will be in Peru. When she gets back, she has planned a party with her best friend. They have a zebra and cheetah print cake picked out for me to try...it should be a challenge. Thanks for stopping by.
Bye for now....
