Then last Monday, with the help of my bestie, Jamie
I attempted to make a fridge cake to enter an online contest.
It started out well.
I had a ridiculously cute checkered "tile" floor!
But it soon went to shit and when I ran out of fondant at 9:30PM,
I threw in the towel and shook my head in disappointment. I think I got over confident honestly. Oh well...at least the floor was cute!
This past weekend, I did my first dragon cake!
He kind of ended up looking more like a brontosaurus BUT, he was too cute...so I named him Pete. The woman I made it for (a referral from Jennifer, who is determined to put me into business) seemed happy, I just hope her kids liked it!
I also did a cake for a birthday party I attended on Friday night that was for one of my dearest friends. I can always count on Christina for a good time on her birthday, and a good time deserves a good cake.
Chocolate cake with Fresh Bing Cherry filling with Dark Chocolate Cherry Buttercream.
One of the fastest cakes I have ever decorated. I thought it looked great, tasted great, and everyone seemed to enjoy it! All around a success!
I also made a cookie cake today for my boss's birthday on Tuesday...but I think that should be it for awhile. I think my standing mixer needs a breather!
