The Day of 3 Cakes
Probably my biggest challenge yet, and a huge learning experience. I had agreed to do 3 4 inch double-tiered & filled cakes for my client. Two were birthday cakes & one was for father's day. Needless to say, I ran out of time! I would have like to do a bit more finishing work, especially on the Batman cake, but it didn't happen. I had planned on putting some explosions behind him, and gloss up the letters a bit. Next time!!
The nest for the chickadee was an experiment. I chopped some semi-sweet chocolate into small pieces and put them in the freezer. I then combined some chocolate buttercream icing with some chocolate shavings to make a paste. Next, I spread more chocolate buttercream around the bird, and placed some of the paste on top. Last, I sprinkled more chocolate shavings. I think it is pretty convincing! Phew!
