15 Feb

Last weekend I made my 20th birthday cake for our children.  And as I have it figured, there are only about 70 more to be baked by request.

Oh goodness, I wish I hadn’t taken the time to figure that out.  It’s a little depressing.  I practically have enough to start my own Cake Wrecks Ripoff blog.  Believe me, there have been some doozies.

Just the thought of more sugar highs and glazed-over eyes makes me a little out of control.  Kind of like this guy:

      I’m so glad you asked. I’m thinking of putting together an Animal Tutorial. You might have to wait.

    I seriously think you should be able to quit after 15 each. That way you would only have to do 55 more……………….

      And 55 sounds completely reasonable.

    i would love a tutorial on how you made this cake…this is one of the best looking animal cakes i’ve seen online !

      Thank you. I don’t know if I’ll be able to get around to posting a tutorial anytime soon, but I can tell you that I used a base of orangish frosting. The hair was made from those red licorice sticks that peel apart. The eyebrows were regular black licorice that I fringed a little with kitchen sheers. The eyes were oreo halves. The black of the eyeballs and mouth was made using a tube of black gel frosting, The tongue was a red fruit roll-up, and the nose was also fruit roll-up wrapped around a large marshmallow. The teeth were made from cut up pieces of large marshmallow. I hope that helps!

    that is amazing… would a soft pink or peach frosting work?

      Thanks! I would think so. I made the frosting pretty haphazardly – a few drops of red, a few of yellow.
