2 Chix in the Mix

June 2, 2010

Fishin’ in the Jungle……

Fishin' HatLast week was a very busy week for me.  Three cakes due at the end of the week.  The first request was for a small cake so there would be no leftovers.  Tom likes to fish so we made him a fishin’ hat.  The fish are altered picks with hooks added for authenticity.  The cake is chocolate chip cookie with vanilla buttercream and fondant.  The plaque is gumpaste written on with edible markers.  So, every thing is edible except the fish.  I do warn everyone though, gumpaste is edible just not palatable. It tastes like stale gum to me.

Myrene found a metal grade that we can safely use on cakes!!! I’m excited about the possibilities this new tool will allow.

<<<<The second cake was made for a special friend who loves light bulbs. You’ll hear more about his story later from his mom. >>>>

The third cake was for a baby shower. Little James’ nursery is decorated in a jungle theme so his cake just had to be the same.  Jungle Baby Shower

The cake is chocolate/vanilla marble with vanilla bean buttercream.  The animals and trees are gumpaste cut outs.

Keepin’ it sweet!
