So in the past I would go on and on about how “I can’t bake” or “I’m not a baker”‘? Well after this past weekend- this has all changed. Going forward I am now going to be known as – a baker! And here is why – My best friend’s hubby asked if I could help him surprise his wife with a cake of her favorite band. After I made sure that he meant to ask me (he did), I said of course I would love too!
He then proceeded to start sending me plans, yes plans, of this birthday cake. Again, I asked if he was sure he meant to ask me to help him? He assured me that he did. Since I love a challenge and my best friend, I gladly said yes (for the 2nd time). Well it was so much fun and it was actually pretty easy that I decided its ok for me to say I can bake. I’m confident that I can keep doing this “baking” thing.
One side was Vanilla – one side was Chocolate
We then used food coloring to color 2 containers of icings 2 different shades of blues for contrast. Carefully I cut out the letters from 2 other thin sheets of chocolate cake. We used one box for this step, but only filled the pans less then half way for a thinner layer of cake. Carefullywe assembled it all and added crystallized blue sprinkles for a little jazz.
Isn’t it a looker? Not too shabby for my 1st attempt to do something really creative with a box cake. I have to say it really was fun and I might even go out and buy a few baking cookbooks. Crazy, I know!
OH it tasted delish too!!!
