Just pictures of two cakes I made recently.
My nephew turned 11 and spends most of his free time playing Minecraft. He wanted a Minecraft block cake, so I made a cake that somewhat resembles a dirt block:
It was my turn to bring a snack to share at lab meeting the day after the Chinese New Year. As many of my colleagues celebrate this holiday, I made a cake in the form of a snake – 2013 is the Year of the Snake.
I made chocolate banana bread and baked it in a smallish bundt ban and a tiny loaf pan, and cut and rearranged the pieces to resemble a snake. The cake was covered in chocolate buttercream and then some store-bought red fondant. This was my first time working with commercial fondant, and was WAY easier than I had expected.
A few weeks from now I’ll show pics of what I plan to make for my family birthday party!
