Cute, huh? I think so.
Anyway... It must have been the giddyness from getting the windows filmed (meaning I could sit in the kitchen longer) because I told P1 that I would do a triple layer cake, covered in buttercream and fondant for her "family party". Oy vey! Why do I promise these things? Fondant is beautiful to look at: but, a complete bitch to work with. And, buttercream is evil. E-V-I-L. I feel like a greased pig. *bitch, bitch, bitch*
Must go finish the cake. It's taunting and laughing at me for being an over-ambitious mother.
*pause in blogging to finish the evil cake*
This is what is known as a crumb coat. It's also known as the (@&*!)(*^#!&*@^ Coat. Seriously, I know that most bakers have no problem with this step, but I suck at it. I'm not a meticulous sort of person and the crumb coat under fondant requires that you be meticulous. Not to mention the fact that I hate making buttercream frosting. And, here is the finished product. The colors are kind of odd looking because of the lighting, but it's pink, peach, and misty green. And, yes...it's crooked.
Time spent baking cakes: 2 hours.
Time spent decorate cake: 3 hours.
Time it took the kids to name the cake "Ham and Cheese": 5 minutes.
In July, it's Costco cake all the way. Damn ungrateful possums.
OH! And, I received an e-mail from "some guy" (see last post) accusing me of slander towards Kirk Cameron. Interestingly, it's trail leads back to the production company that makes Way of the Master merchandise.
