Well, it's been an interesting week. We got snowed in twice which threw off my entire routine. For the first snow, I went to my mom's house to hang with her and the puppies. I brought all my baking stuff with me so I could make by boss' 50th birthday cake. We decided to surprise her at her favorite lunch place for her birthday.
I wanted to do something different and slightly over the top, so I did a whimsical cake. I stacked 2 9 inch cakes on top of an 8 inch cake, then carved it down to taper it. I made black icing by adding black icing coloring to chocolate buttercream. Then, I made fondant accents and placed them all over the cake. It was a hit!
This is what was happening outside while I was inside baking!!!
Oh, and by the way, I was featured this week on a really cool blog...check it out!!! Cute Cupcakes All the Time
