It IS all about me right?!!!!
OK. Got ‘er done. Just in time for Big Boss’s high school buddy to come eat cake. I had given him a heads up at the school earlier after I finished my bike run. It wasn’t hard to twist his arm in to coming for cake.
I’m trying a new style. One I found somehow on Facebook?!! Have no idea how I found this gal, but she’s good. I was all set to take some lessons from her. She’s in England. Blew that! Her business is called “Cotton and Crumbs” and I love her cakes. They’re very Victorianish…delicate, pastel, feminine…OH, and absolutely flawless!!
I used my handmade mold to hand make fondant lace pieces to put around the top. I think they might have looked better on the bottom…it’s a bit top-heavy in my opinion. And I needed more flowers but ran out of time. But, overall, I got the look I was going for.
And it’s half gone now. Some of the grands stopped by to wish Paw a Happy Birthday and they were more than happy to help eat cake. They liked the yellow filling. So do I. Also BB. The cake was an Orange Vanilla cake filled with an orange custard-like filling that I, personally, can just sit down with a spoon and eat by the bowl full. With no problem. At all. Happy as a mud duck in a pond. Thus the bike riding to burn the calories off. 🙂
OH YEAH! I made this for my hub’s birthday who married me on the same day, so it’s also an anniversary cake, plus…
It’s my Blogaverssary (1 year anniversary) CAKE! That’s why I went with the girly style!! Hubs doesn’t care as long as he gets to eat some of it! Wow, one year though??! Who’d a thunk it.
Also, I dedicate the cake…I CAN do that, can’t I???!…to Doug, who can’t eat cake anyway, so this is really the best way that I can cook for you. Just don’t tell your wife! 😉 But I’m betting if you were picking, you’d want chocolate instead of orange?
And also to Annie, who just finished a 10 year process of getting her doctorate. TEN YEARS!! That, my friends is perserverance!!
AND, I just got word from a Christy friend, Lynda, that she was recognized by the Board of Education as The Person of the Year for her contributions to her school!! Way to go Bitsy!!!! So this one is for you too!
Anyone else?!!! (Wow, I’m getting a log of milage out of one little cake huh?!!)
