Hi all, hope everyone had a great Easter!
My daughter still hasn't done her easter egg hunt and I'm hoping she forgets because, thanks to all the easter baskets she received, she has candy coming out of her ear holes! Mom might just have to help her out a bit I think ;) You do what ya gotta do!
We spent Easter with Stephen's family and had a nice, while interesting to say the least, day. But I won't bore you with all the details!
I am going through a real cake phase right now. Just making, not eating ... fortunately! And I've been coming across some really awesome blogs and web sites that have inspired me so much. This year, I decided to make an Easter bunny cake and, for the first time, worked with gum paste. It was so much fun!
It was a white chocolate pound cake made from a doctored mix with white chocolate frosting and filling with raspberry filling also. The little bunnies and flowers were made from the gum paste. My father - in - law ate some and said what he usually says, 'did YOU make this? You sure you didn't BUY it?' So funny.
The first cake I made I used my new ultimate cake leveler with which turned out to be not so ultimate but flimsy and wonky and ruined the cake. I was mad but then decided to use the cake to make cake pops before making another. See below!
White and blue ones
(hey! New idea for July 4th!)
A weird pale green and white ones.
And colorful ones made by Willow! She got to do these all by herself while I got busy dipping and decorating the others.
