Birthday cake for a 7 year old girl! It was supposed to be Littlest Pet Shop, but I didn't quite pull it off. I think I'm losing my touch... :) This one was a bit tricky for me. I had problem after problem. I used the Wilton bear pan for the body and changed it around a bit, but couldn't quite the the face right. And the whole things seems to be shifting to the right. And my balloons were top heavy and fell over. Good thing it was for a friend... she'll forgive me. :)
Next time, I think I need a denser cake recipe for the 3-D pan. And maybe I should start earlier than the night before it needs to be done!
Yes, yes I know it's "flower". A little baking pun there ...ahem. Anyway, I am a preschool teacher, writer, wife and mom of three children; 8, 9 & 12 years old. "Peeling an orange with a screwdriver" is where I go to ponder life in general. Things like parenting and marriage, kids, dealing with depression and bipolar, the angst of writer's block and the freedom of a good book. Toilet scrubbing and laundry. I might throw in a photo or two, some art, a poem.
"Sugar Weave" is strictly about cake. Always a voracious baker (and eater) of cakes, I recently fell head first into cake decorating. I made birthday cakes for my three children and people kept telling me I could charge for my creations. So I decided to give it a go.
