Can you believe it is Thursday already? The week is going by quickly and there is still so much to get done for this Circus party. Today I baked up all round cakes in 10″ x 3″ (almost double the thickness of a regular pan) cake, 2 8″ cakes, a 6″ cake and last but not least I have one of those “ball” pans so I cooked up half of that to create the dome on the top of the “Big Top Tent” which will be the topper to our cake. You can’t even imagine HOW many sticks of butter, cups of sugar, sacks of flour goes into making THIS MANY CAKES WOWZA! Oh and don’t forget about all those egg whites to create white cake with sprinkles which is what this little peanut wanted for her cake of as she says VALLILA too cute!
Once all those cakes were finished I started on my fondant lion. I had begun using my plain white Marshamallow fondant or MMF and had to color it. Working in small batches I made a few colors. This is the first time I had done a lion so here he is I think he came out cute.
I also created a seal balancing a ball on his nose, last night however I am going to share when he is ALL done. I need to make his pedestal still.
Tonight I will be busy leveling my cakes (using a in-expensive level from your local hardware store works great!) then getting them all wrapped in plastic wrap and chilled overnight so that tomorrow I can begin the crumb coating and start getting this Circus cake done.
What are you working on? Have you ever played with fondant before? Have some fun pictures you would like to share email them to me.
Have a TASTY night all
