I think baking is easy. All I do is run to the cupboard--like Old Mother Hubbard--but instead of bones, I pull out cake pans and I don't always know what I'm going to make in the beginning but once I get going, something pops in my head.
It's easy to do. All I do is stack layers and cut and shape or simply decorate until I have what I want.
And, I have a BIG family so this fall I made more than a few cakes.
Here's how I did it.
I started with a couple layers of cake (this one was two pineapple upside down cakes that I stacked together) because my son loves Pineapple... then I covered them with fondant.
And started to decorate.
I was only thinking of pineapple...so this is where I began. But then I had to add a little bit more.
But Luke's birthday is in October and this didn't seem very Halloweenie . . . and I was thinking of scary eyes...so on the backside I added a couple of Oreo eyes
But that still didn't seem like enough...so I baked a couple more small little cakes...just in case
And I stacked those together to make pumpkins. Then I frosted them with some orange cream cheese frosting.
And to top it off, I used a PayDay Candy Bar as the stem. I guess I shouldn't have added the fondant leave because my husband said that made the cake look like an orange apple. Oh well, I never said I was great.
And then we sang and ate and ate...oh, but first, Luke had to blow out his candles.
I think this photo makes him look like he's breathing fire... and that inspires me to make a dragon cake...next time, I think.
Anyway, I'd love to hear about the cakes you make, bake or create.
