A leprechaun hat cake for St. Patrick's Day

           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?


  1. Awesome! The lady who was on the receiving end of that cake was very...LUCKY!

  2. Thanks Charlene! So glad you think so. : )
