Congratulations, it's a GIRL! I appreciate that its not the traditional blue and pink, but a nice show of Oakland pride using green and yellow #oaklandloveit
Happy Easter! My first buttercream rose swirl cake! Not too hard, but not as easy as it looks either!
I was so happy to be able to do this cake for my friend's mom's 70th birthday. I love when someone takes time to celebrate themselves - well deserved! Happy Birthday Tita!
This was the first time I ever made Minnie Ears (or Mickey Ears) and the first time I ever made a fondant bow! All these years, and you'd think a bow would come up fairly regularly, right? Not for me - this was the first time I had to make a bow. And not just ANY bow, MINNIE'S BOW - which has a little more plump to it than a normal bow! I hope it did it justice :)
I did the best I could using the proper font for the words on the cake - I ended up free handing it onto the cake. That's always the most nerve wracking!
The cake and little lamb fondant topper was easy enough to make, I even had an egg shaped cake pan! A spin on the cake stand and a spray of gold completed the cake.
It was the cookies that gave me a headache! I couldn't get the right vodka to gold luster dust ratio, so it was either too liquid-y which started to dissolve the royal icing, or not enough, and it got clumpy. In the end, I had to remember "it's just cookies" and everything turned out alright. :)
