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!

So what are you working on today? Go to Leslie's blog, MY COUNTRY HOME, to see more of what's going on in other women's homes.

Both cakes are so pretty. You inspire me....you're working all day and then home to decorate a cake. I come home dead on my feet - I'd feel better if I made myself do a few things and I'm learning from you to do just that. Thanks for the inspiration.

Great job on the cakes! I can do a lot of crafty stuff but cake decorating isn't one of them! LOL

Have a great day :)

If you sign up for Nestle's verybestbaking.com, they have a bunch of free cookie and cake stencils you can download from the site. (I'm just getting into cake decorating again, too -- although my "s'more cake" for my daughter's birthday sure didn't look like the picture in the book!.)

Great cakes...something that I could never do! Even if I tried real hard ;-) Anyone who can decorate cakes has a great talent. Thanks for sharing yours.
