Are you a Fashionista?

30 Sep


Two weeks ago  made this cake for a my sisters co-worker’s boss! I was told she was a fashionista! So I made her a fashionista cake! Red velvet with cream cheese frosting in Pink and Green. Her favorite colors. I had some pieces left over from leveling the cake off, OMG delicious. I used Paula Deen’s recipe and man it just never fails!

I used these Fashionista cutouts i ordered from amazon for $5.00 to make the fondant decorations. I used edible marker to write on the ” I ❤ Shopping” and even personalized the purse and dress with pearls. I finished of the cake with a happy birthday and carefully places pearls all over. She was very Happy!

I just had one Challenge. SMOOTHING THAT FROSTING!

Let me tell you I think I HATE frosting cakes, I just can’t get the darn things smooth! How do those bakeries do it! I am going to source a nice cake smoother because I just can’t take this anymore! I will not let these cakes beat me. I know the key to smooth frosting is  the consistency of the icing, room temperature and technique. Something must be off. I know the wilton frosting is perfect and while learning i had no problems with it, but I just don’t like how it tastes. So i have been using my homemade recipes. It is one thing to just do the decorations but I want my cakes to be delicious and beautiful.  Just another challenge I WILL master!

Sometimes my life gets hectic!

I am still here faithful followers! I have been busy teaching (my actual job) and baking many cakes!

During the beginning of the school year it is especially hectic. Long evenings after school setting the place up and early mornings. With all the baking going on in my free time I have not posted in a little while! Well I suppose that could be a good thing also.
