15 years later and a psych degree 3/4 of the way done, I now have to get my bake on whenever I get the chance!
The task at hand was to create a multi-layer cake, and decorate the cake using 4 of the concepts they had learned throughout the year. We went with a classic yellow cake and a vanilla buttercream (since nobody in the class even tastes the cake).
Please excuse the blurry picture. Still waiting to buy a decent camera.
I trimmed the tops down, Kyle finished and started giving them a buttercream cover.
Yes you do see a hidden layer of chocolate. Kyle wanted a "surprise" layer hahaha <3.
He piped royal icing flowers...
I created some fondant branches and leaves...
He piped a green shell border that he was VERY proud of..
And before we knew it....the masterpiece was born!!
Pretty gorgeous, no? I was super happy with how it turned out and so was Kyle. Delivering the cake was a whole other story. We only had one minor mishap which took the life of some of the shell border but nothing TOO tragic happened. 45 minutes later and a quarter of a tank of gas used on A/C alone, we turned that puppy in and called it a success. Whew. I was proud to be a part of the process!
Thing I enjoyed the most? Watching this stud hard at work:
I love him :)
