I baked two cakes and many cupcakes. It ended up being about 1 1/2 cakes too many, but having leftover cake is certainly not a BAD thing. It's not like having leftover okra or leftover roadkill souffle.
Anyway, yes, I like to make cakes and decorate them. It may even be a hobby. Or at least a time waster when I have more important things that I really should be doing but don't want to do. I don't decorate my house, but if there is a flour/egg/sugar baked good, you can be sure I'll be right there with my homemade buttercream frosting, Wilton decorating tips and pastry bags, and the appropriate colors of Wilton food coloring paste to fit the occasion, and I will decorate the heck out of that baked good.
This was one of the results of my efforts this week:
|The cross country running cake|
Now for the other cake, which I will bore you with a step by step process:
|Nearly nude cake|
|the track oval has been added|
|lines painted on the asphalt|
|the logo painted onto the field|
|one tattoo placed on the track|
|the second tattoo and the grass infield filled in|
|the nearly completed track oval cake.|
I had a helper for cupcake decorating (and for the CC running cake):
|Kate came to town and went to town on the cupcakes|
|a blue-tongued skink|
|Guess what she did with the frosting besides decorate? I like the look on Jim's face. I wish I could come up with a really funny thought bubble to paste next to his head.|
