Well, I am busy getting my two cake dummies ready for the San Diego Cake Club's La Jolla Cake Show. It is a whole 'nother ball game making a cake that you KNOW is going to be judged by professionals, and taken apart bit by bit by the scrutinizing eyes of other cake decorators. Ugh! I've never made a fake cake, using styrofoam, so that has presented some challenges for me. One of which... when icing a weightless cake, it's real hard to get that thing to stay! So, after a prayer, I was divinely inspired to used double sticky tape to keep that cake in place. Worked like a charm! So, with that behind me, I'm now finishing up a "foreign technique" entry of a Thai Style cake. Very Buddhist looking And a hatbox, blush colored with vines and intertwining rosebuds. Wish me luck guys!
