Welcome to my new blog! It was suggested to me by a friend that my other blog So I was thinking...wasn't the best place to post my cake creations. Although I don't see too much of a difference between creating cake versus creating art, I can see how a separate blog would probably be a better fit for the two processes.
So here's the first post. A customer ordered a fondant covered leprechaun hat for their grandmother's 90 th birthday. I made a multi-layered chocolate devil's food cake for 30 people. I usually cover my cakes in marshmallow fondant (MMF) to save on cost but I thought I would try Satin Ice to test out the difference between homemade and commercial.
The taste was really good for both but I would have to say the elasticity and ease of use was better in the Satin Ice brand. The top of the cake was 10" in diameter so I was concerned that the MMF would tear at the edges due to the excess weight once I draped it on the cake.
So what do you think? Do you think my leprechaun hat cake bodes well for another lucky year for grandma?
