Today's cake post will be another short and sweet one, as any extra time lately (between my "real" job [not cakes] and my "pretend" job [cakes] is nearly impossible to find.
I learned a lot while making this cake, including the fact that you can never, ever, ever, no matter what, never ever turn Fondx “white fondant” into anything even remotely resembling hot pink fondant. And as proof to that claim, I offer this soft, warm, "baby pink" cake which was born of my failed attempts to make said hot pink fondant. Cake is WASC wedding batter, filled with whipped vanilla bean butter cream and covered in fondant.
I was so flattered to be asked to bake for this sweet family. The cake traveled 90 miles in one direction and was a surprise goody at the graduation celebration of the utterly GORGEOUS Blaire Jones. I mean, really! Doesn’t that name even SOUND like the name of a movie star?? I know this beautiful young woman will go forth and do many amazing and wondrous things in life now that her college graduation is behind her (and now that she's had a bite of my cake). :D
Oven’s on – I’ll be back soon!
