It’s my new cake pans… and other supplies for my brother’s wedding cake! Yippeeeeeeeeeee! I felt like a 5 year old on Christmas morning yesterday when I opened the box! I know, I know. Who get’s that excited about cake? Well…I guess I do!
So….I may or may not be around much for the rest of the day. If my plans work out (which is never a guarantee with 6 kids underfoot), I’m hoping to wrap up this post, get lunch ready for the kids, clean the kitchen, get a roast in the crockpot, and then make a miniature practice wedding cake.
I initially told you about the upcoming wedding cake when I was working on this zebra/make-up cake. Then I practiced with fondant again on a New Years cake and I made this Valentine’s Cake to practice scroll work.
Well, Jake (my brother) and Ariel (his wife-to-be) are still a little undecided on fondant vs. buttercream, so I agreed to make a couple of versions (miniature, of course) so they could hopefully decide. Personally, I’m leaning toward fondant because I think I can do a better job of making it really smooth and pretty, but if they decide on buttercream…that’ will be fantastic too…I hope! Either way, I need all the practice I can get and I’m sure my kids won’t complain about having to eat a cake!! So, now that my square pans are here…I’ll be back in a bit – to show you a cake.
Just for fun, I searched for a pic of one of my kids eating cake…I found this one of my Sarah eating her first birthday cake back in 2004…isn’t she precious??? I think so!
And this is her last week…with her favorite doll (and their matching hairstyles)…Sarah will be 7 in a few weeks. I can hardly believe it! She’s such a beautiful little girl…can a Mommy say that about her own child? Because I am!
Happy Wednesday everyone!
