Daisy Bridal Shower Cake
Made for my cousin's fiance's bridal shower. The only request was that there be neon colored daisies. This was the first time I'd attempted to cover the cake board with fondant. It wasn't quite a success. It's still not dry and I don't even know how I'm going to get it off the table...it might be a disaster.
Yes, yes I know it's "flower". A little baking pun there ...ahem. Anyway, I am a stay at home mom of three children; a 3 year old, a five year old and second grade student. "Peeling an orange with a screwdriver" is where I go to ponder life in general. Things like parenting and marriage, diaper rash and 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.
