Cakes

Nicole these cakes are nothing like the cakes you have made i am kind of embarrassed to put them up on the blog. When you come down you are going to have to show me how you do yours.


My sister wanted me to make a tooth cake for her graduation party from dental hygiene program at Community College. So this was a test cake, it was the first time that i worked with fondant...so i made a cake for Mothers Day.


This is a picture of us girls on Mothers Day (left to right) Me, Heather, Mom, Nana, and Andrea







What i learned from making this cake is that you have to allow yourself hours upon hours of time or even days before for all the work. I cooked the cake and put the filling in the middle of the cake the day before. I put the frosting and fondant on the cake the day of, but i also had to work that day and so lets say i was rushed to get it done before the party started. If i could do it all over again i would just have the cake done the day before so it is ready to go or just don't work the day of and have the day to decorate it. I really love to make cakes i just haven't got around to doing it much- maybe i will start experimenting again.

Here are some of the other cakes that i have made

Those are awesome- I think making the top look uniform is one of the hardest parts! And that chocolate bannana one made me so hungry- oh and the ice cream one with those crunchy things on the outside... mmmmmmmmm.

That bottom one looks really yummy. Bryan told Tom that you made some cookies from a recipe off of the Sweet Sista blog. That whole blog makes me sooo hungry.
