Bou-cake

I know, I know, it’s another cake entry.  I have to post this now because this is something I did two Mondays ago.  So please, bear with me?  Anyway, these photos won’t give you diabetes.  That much I can promise you!  Hee hee. :D

The cake board looks the way it does because I had to trim it to the size of the cake , which is 8″ in diameter.  The boards I bought are 12″ in diameter, which are perfect for a 10″ cake. :D

The icing was a little less creamy than I would have preferred, giving the rose petals that torn effect, which I have come to appreciate.  I kinda messed up the bow though. :)

I love the roses…and the leaves, too! :)

I’ve been baking a lot the past four weeks.  Hubby is starting to blame me for the increase in gas bill. Really!  This cake, I divided into quarters.  Three quarters of it were given away to three of my favorite neighbors. ;)

You can expect more cake entries in the future (the very near future?).  The only way I can get better at this new found passion is with frequent practice.  That means more cakes to give away!  Gosh, I hope my neighbors don’t start  hiding behind their stereo cabinets just to avoid me!  :D

    Hi Mel! Thanks! Hee hee. Huwag ka na mainggit. Hmmm, I wonder where you can buy cake decorating tools. I remember there used to be a store at SM Megamall which specializes in baking and cake decorating tools and equipment. Kaya lang nawala na rin yata at napalitan ng restaurant. I think you can also check out Chocolate Lover’s sa may Qeuzon City or Henny Sison’s shop in San Juan. Good luck! Kayang-kaya mo ‘yan!

    Hi Thess! Kung puwede lang padalhan lahat ng friends ko ng cake gagawin ko! :) Ano ba’ng nakain ko? Siguro I just got tired of simply putting a dallop of icing on cupcakes and finishing them off with sprinkles. Plus, I have a friend nga who is great at decorating cakes, too. Na-inspirse ako lalo to pursue something more ambitious. Haha!

    I always found cake decorating fun too, but that was years ago when I was a SAHM. These days I’m really out of practice. Love the cake. And I too like the rough edges on the roses

    Ang swerte ng mga kapit-bahay ninyo. : ) Ang ganda na, for sure kay sarap pa. Naalala ko tuloy ang mga cake books ng Mama ko. Parang ganyan na yung nakikita ko nuon e. Gumagawa rin kasi siya ng cake nung mga bata pa kami.
