Tonight we celebrated a birthday party for the Women’s Organization in our church. It’s one of the oldest and largest women’s organization in the world. It’s over 165 years old! Anyway, a month or so ago they called and asked me to make a themed “birthday” cake as the main dessert.
Of course in the end we had WAY too much food and desserts, we always do. So there is a lot of cake left over. But it was really fun to make it and I got a new pan out of it. You can’t see it very well, but I marbelized the fondant and it created a really cool effect. I wish it came across better. Oh well. I need a better camera and flash, maybe a few lenses, Oh, and photography classes…
I got the wondermold pan (those barbie cake with the doll sticking out the top and the cake being the skirt) and put it on top of an 8 inch by 3 inch round pan to give it the height and sides. I covered it with my new marshmallow fondant and added these fondant bee’s. When I got there to set up I noticed a few bee’s were missing… My children… Luckily I made plenty.
The cake was a hit, and it tasted great too. Chocolate, chocolate and chocolate! MMMMMmmmmm. I changed my chocolate buttercream recipe a bit, I’ve just discovered Dutch cocoa (thanks Malina) and it is just INCREDIBLE!!!! Anyway, I have 3 more cakes on the book this month. So look for a weekly post!
