The second cake was made with raspberry icing. I'm real big on not being normal! LOL! Can ya tell???? I plan to make a chocolate cake with cherry flavored icing in the future for Bear. I'm thinking it will be like a cherry cordial, which I can't stand lol! So would be just for the Bear! And maybe the boys! LOL!
The third one was done for the Bear. It was a german chocolate cake with coconut flavored buttercream icing! Bear's fav! LOL! I was pretty much making a cake a week at the beginning and testing out different flavors! Can you say cake overload???
These two cakes were made for my sisters birthday. She requested Italian Cream Cake. There is history with that cake lol. This was a favorite of mine for a long time and every time I would go to make it I would have to contact my grandmother for the recipe. I mean it could be only 6 months since I had made it and would have to call her AGAIN for it! This went on for years and BEFORE the internet so it was an actual long distance phone call (before Vonage and all as well) or wait for it to arrive in the mail!!!! She was even gonna give me her original but I pointed out to her that I keep losing the one I get so why would she think I wouldn't lose the original????
My next class cake was my Course 2 final "test" lol! Shannon and I had decided after 4 straight weeks of cakes we would not make one until the final. So that gave us 3 weeks of no cakes! YEAH!!!! We just had enough time to get our sugar high down to a managable level lol!
This was my next cake and my first fondant cake! It make is so smoooooooth but I don't care for the fondant taste. I explained it to my son that it's eatable playdough lol!
I will be attempting marshmellow fondant (from scratch) for tomorrows cake.
Okay, I have spent a few hours on this that I should be spending on flowers for tomorrows cake lol! So this is it for today! I will be working on another insert in a few days with my final final cake! Until then......,
