I’m so far behind in getting my cakes posted. I’ll try hard in the next few days to catch up starting with today’s cake: Barney. I didn’t even realize Barney was still around until I got a request a few weeks ago to make a “Barney-themed” cake. He’s changed shades of purple about 8 times in the last two decades (not kidding, I really researched that). I went with the “old school” Barney, from back in the day (circa 1989, when he was still really purple and not fuchsia yet), because I thought the color looked nice with the party decor. I was worried that little Heidi Marie, age 2, wouldn’t recognize a 20 year old Barney - but I guess there aren’t that many purple dinosaurs to choose from, so she nailed it. Woo! This was double chocolate chip cake with whipped chocolate butter-creme filling and icing, covered in chocolate ganache, then finished with a layer of homemade marshmallow fondant. All 100% edible, as always.
