Anyhow...the first cake I made for the weekend was a request from a lovely girl who is turning the fabulous age of 18. She write me and says, "Can you make this?"
ASHLEY'S BIRTHDAY CAKE
|These are my ladybugs and beetles|
|Itty bitty bumble bees|
|My teeny weeny butterflies....|
And all of these, I've created by hand from modelling chocolate...
AND IT'S ALL COMPLETELY EDIBLE!!!!
|The tiara is placed ever so delicately on top of the cake. This is the tiara I had made earlier this week.|
|Top of the cake. Flowers covering the drape...kinda making it look like a veil....|
|Back of the cake...I LOVE the veil look...so pretty!|
|Front of the cake.|
|Another front view.|
|This is the finished product of the dotted effect tiara.|
|This is the drop string Tara...It's still holding on to dear life after surgery to fix a broken arm in the back...I'll leave that one till tomorrow to take apart....|
|This is just a quick snap of multiple teeny tiny feet that might make it somewhere on the cake.....not all of them as there are a few that look as though they have a growth of some sort on them....but a few....below this shot is about the same amount of left feet...they are all about 3/4" long...SO TINY!! tee hee hee!!!|
|The MOUNTAIN of dishes....This was in between having a dishwasher...I was less than pleased.|
|The oven...post pyrotechnics|
|Tony and Joey basically laughing at the situation...They didn't have to clean any of the mess....Technically it was TONY'S fault ya know...|
|Tony being grossed out by the residue left by the extinguisher. He then walked away. We have a NEW one now...|
|mmmmm....Apple crisp anyone? GROSS!!!!! hahahahaha!!!|
I have since decided that apple crisps are NOT my forté...thus leaving me to bake at a reasonable temperature for an amount of time that doesn't require eagle eye attention. Fondant doesn't hurt people...I'm friends with fondant.
Oh ya...and one more thing...That oven you see? It was brand new at the time....
WELCOME TO CHEZ EVANS'!!
