Simple Cake Decorating Ideas
Just something little
This cake gave me the hardest time..for something SO simple!! I have done far more complicated cakes,yet this little 5 incher really pushed me to the edge. From a soft cake that should NEVER have been carved (my fault), to ganache that never set (I mean 2 days later), to forgetting a set up board (did I say I did this interstate with limited tools?)...
THEN, deciding to ditch the idea of a carved cake, do it out of styro, well..no styro! Improvise with 3/4 inch sheets and glue together and carve to a circle (OMG)...so try figure out what glue is on hand to do it (interstate remember). SO, eventually get some fondant on it, sit it in a plate to dry..guess who didnt check the plate was dry??? and guess who had a soggy bottom part of the carriage? WELL, its at the bottom, so power on viv...lets do the details..some ACTUAL decorating. All good till I come back and the internal sheets of styro have shifted and the whole thing is now skewed/twisted.
WELL, decide to carve a fruit cake to stick the darn thing in (honestly, wasn't thinking by now..brain was mush)..we know how that goes right? no need to explain.
SO EVENTUALLY, decide the only way to remedy it is to cover in a ribbon wrap.
So if you are still reading this (and having a good laugh at my stupidity), let me just say I was happy it didn't end up on the nearest wall, and only by the fact that I had promised a cake (it was for my SIL, and I had free reign, THANK GOD!!!)
Halloween cake 2011
This is my Halloween cake for this year. I had a thousand and one ideas, but all of them for much larger cakes, and we aren't that many people at my job these days to eat the cake. Also, I hadn't all that much time, so I decided to keep it simple.
The cake I really wanted to do was a cauldron, but in the end I decided that wasn't Halloweeny enough, so I returned to the pumpkin. I've made a pumpkin cake before, but I like this one so much better.
It's chocolate mudcake with orange buttercream. A word of advice; make mudcake a few days before you want to carve and decorate it, otherwise it'll crumble just when you look at it. Believe me, I know.
