My imagination went a little wild.. then I suggested a castle cake. Friends being friends... not demanding.. phew! I struggled with whether to make it a fresh cream cake or put my new found fondant skills to use and make a fondant covered cake. I decided on fondant. Then I received news that the birthday girl prefers vanilla cake! My..my... I don't think my favourite vanilla sponge cake recipe will suit a fondant covered cake! So I scouted high and low and finally settled on a vanilla butter cake recipe.
Here's the final cake. Due to a lack of the right resources, a castle cake it was not meant to be.. hope the BD girl will not mind...
My figurine modelling skills really need brushing up.
Overall, pretty happy with the results. But I certainly have more difficulty covering the cake this time. The weather was so humid, the fondant was 'sweating'.
Added a few more vanilla cupcakes in case the 8 inch cake is not enough.
Looking forward to the next opportunity to bake - Teacher's day! But more likely won't have time to bake for the teachers in my kids' preschool, but maybe the Sunday school teachers in church.
BTW, just bought a nice new digital SLR!! I hope this means the end of bad pictures!
