I haven't posted in a while, so this post will be about what has been going on since November. I've been busy with my internship with the FHWA the past few months as well as cakes. I have made 5 cakes since November. The first cake is the first of two cow cakes I made during November. I wasn't entirely happy with how the face came out for this cake, but it was good practice for the other cow cake later in the month.
The next cake I made was cupcakes for my sister for her birthday. I made the butterflies on top out of mexican paste using a butterfly mold. To get the bent shape, I placed the butterflies in an egg carton to dry. I sprinkled the top of the cupcakes with glitter.
The next cake I made was a 3-D free standing cow cake for a wedding. The couple didn't want a traditional wedding cake. I made the stand using particle board and wooden dowels. I used foam on the bottom of the stand, front of the neck, and bottom of the head. I had problems in the past by placing rice krispies on the bottom of free-standing cakes, so I decided foam would not face the same problems with gravity. I covered the stand in foil to prevent foam from touching cake. I finished off the cake with fondant and air brushing. I placed the modeling chocolate grass on location. I also made a banner sheet cake to go along with the cake.
The next two cakes I made for my twin nieces. I used a real tiara for the pillow cake and Littlest Pet Shop toys for the other cake.
Well that's all the cakes I have made in the months of November and December. I have a few cakes coming up in the next few months including a legend of zelda cake with lit sword. In 4 months I should also be graduating with my Bachelors degree in Civil Engineering. Well that's all for now.
