Here we are at week #3 of cake decorating!
I made a plain white cake without filling this week. With all the other things going on, splitting and filling a cake seemed like an extra unnecessary step. Especially after making four different frosting colors. It came out really well, although next time I should read the directions, pay attention, and use egg whites. It was a little creamy colored rather than super white.
This week's theme was a baby sweater. Not very exciting, but if you had a baby shower to go to, it would be pretty cute. Maybe it would be neater as a sports jersey.
We cut out wax paper templates and laid them over our crumb-iced cakes. Really, it was just a matter of cutting out little triangles on each side and a small semicircle from the top. Then it was on to decorating! I really like decorating with the tips and bags. I'm not an artist, but drawing with the right tip really makes a world of difference.
On the left side of the sweater is a rattle, and on the right is a little flower pattern of my own creation.
They all came out so well! My coworkers are really starting to appreciate weekly cake. Next week's cake is a doll's dress.
