Whatcha Working On Wednesday - Novelty Cakes
Its time to make the next birthday cake I planned to make in June. This one is for my step-daughter who will be 29 Friday. I have already made my cake layers this morning and they are cooling on the counter. I will leave them loosely covered while I am at work today and tonight I hope to create something like one of the above cakes, which were in a Betty Crocker Cake Decorating Book that I got from the library.
The cake on the left has simple piping around the bottom and top edge, which I can do "fairly well". The little packages are fruit chews with little piped strings and bows. It is very cute and I think would be easy.
The second cake uses a stencil and different colored sugars to make pretty flowers. I already have some blue sugar from a previous cake, so this might be an option.
Today at lunch I plan to go to Walmart to purchase either a stencil and colored sugar, or a package of fruit chews. Then tonight I will decorate the cake. Hopefully it will turn out like one of these!
