When I first got the order for this cake, I was a little scared. I mean, this was the same week as all those cakes I told you about on Monday
And honestly, I’d never even heard of Bubble Guppies. Had no clue what they were!
Since I really strive to always be totally honest and real with you and to convince some of you that I’m not, in fact, Super Woman… I decided to share my “secret” with you about how I did this cake…
I ordered these fabulous, tiny, perfect little fondant Bubble Guppies characters from Etsy. I knew I didn’t have time to do them. Even if I had had the time, I couldn’t have ever made them this perfect.
I sort of felt guilty about it… like maybe you guys would think I’m a cheater or something…
But I’m a woman who has a hard time saying no to an order and well… why kill myself doing a job that I don’t have time to do, when I can pay a more talented person to do some of that work for me?
Besides, by ordering things like that, I help another woman with her at-home business and it helps me
stay sane lose some anxiety… I’d say that makes it a win-win!
Anyway, so that’s my big secret on this cake… I didn’t do all the tiny characters.
It was covered and decorated with homemade marshmallow fondant. OH, and the “sand” was brown sugar!
There was also a smash cake – it was really simple…
I used coordinated buttercream and I think it went well with the big cake…
What do you think? If you’re a caker, would you ever “contract out” part of your work? I welcome all honest opinions and thoughts – just please mind your manners and don’t be ugly!
Do you have any questions about these cakes? Please leave them in the comments and I’ll do my best to answer and help out!
