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
Today I have been very busy working on some items for the 6th birthday bash we are having for our niece. If you couldn’t tell by the title its a CIRCUS theme party YAY (can you tell I’m excited about it? ) So today I baked up a nice confetti fun cake, rolled and dipped for some clown pops. Here is what I have done on them so far
These are SO cute the kids, and parents, will love them! I’m only doing a dozen since we have LOTS of fun things planned. Check out these what I like to call “MuscleMALLOW” dumbells below. If you click on the picture you’ll get the whole view in there.
Its been quite a productive day here at Tasty Cake Pop. Next up will be to finish our cute little clowns and dumbells and tomorrow afternoon start working on some fondant pieces. Be sure to check back daily to see what is going on.
My crafting started out with scrapbooking, then blossomed to rubber stamping, jewelry and cake. So with that said, I am also doing all the paper items such as banners for the party and popcorn boxes so I need to get those all glued up also. Did I mention the party is this Sunday? OH and they are calling for what could be a “significant snow.” Now just mentioning the word SNOW here in our Nations Capital and everyone FREAKS so please pray that this storm does not arrive until Sunday night as they are talking about, if at all!
