I started the week out well, baked the cakes, made the fondant and then it happened.... we all got strep throat. I called the client to let her know, but she still wanted the cake so I set out to get it decorated, but everything possible went wrong. I had to take everyone to the doctor, then had to get the prescriptions filled and that ended up taking a few hours and 5 trips to Walgreens. By the time the client came for the cake and cupcakes my once clean kitchen looked like a bomb had gone off, and Bryce had crawled through the kitchen emptying the contents of all the lower cabinets onto the floor. I don't even want to know what she thought of the mess. It was just so horrible and embarrassing, but I had done all I could do. I truly hope I don't ever go through something like that again. The cake was doomed form the beginning, I didn't ever get a clear vision and I think I added to much powdered sugar to the fondant because it was a little dry. It was just a bad cake day. My husband reassured me that the cake looked really good, but you know when you have one thing in your mind and it is just not turning out that way you thought it would. So many things went wrong I didn't even get a picture of the cake before it was gone.
After they left I felt horrible, but I still had one more cake to do, so I cleaned up the kitchen and got to work.
This one turned out just as I had pictured it.
The week after Christmas I had another cake to do, but this time I knew the "client" would love it.
Thats right my baby Bryce turned 1! We had a huge game night party for him so of course he needed a Candyland cake.
I think you could say he liked it.
I gave him the top yellow tier and the "castle" on top. The top layers where confetti cheesecake cake and I used applesauce instead of oil to make it a little more baby friendly. The bottom tier was triple chocolate cake with a candy cane butter cream. Yummy!
