A couple months back while browsing on Amazon, I came across the Wilton Romantic Castle Cake Set and knew I had to give it a try for Baby Girl’s birthday party. We had the party yesterday and it was a crazy affair, with a total of 14 kids and a Double Cannon Blast Slide (though we bought a different, better model of the same thing from Sam’s Club). Anyway, here’s my account of the ordeal I went through to make this cake.
It’s hard to believe that just at the start of this month, I’d never done a fondant cake before because I was too scared and now here I am two weeks later doing my second. I wasn’t even planning on doing it. The opportunity just presented itself.
Last week, my boss said she wanted to do a little cake celebration for my co-worker on Monday. I volunteered to bake a cake since I still had tons of black fondant leftover from my Hunger Games cake.
I’m sure that I’m like bazillions of other moms out there that occasionally, while surfing the web a week before a kids’ birthday, come across a flat out gorgeous and mind-blowing fondant cake that is entirely outside the realm of possibility. I mean, who has the time to do that kind of work?
I had one co-worker who frequently took the time to make amazing cakes for our office and I always wondered why she did it.
