Oh my! Has it really been a full month since I last updated this space?! We’ve been very busy these last 3 weekends and now that we’re on the final stretch before school starts again on the 23rd, we’re definitely squeezing in as much crazy fun as we can into our last week of summer break.
I’ve baked and decorated 3 cakes since my last entry. This week, I will do 1 or 2 more cakes and a couple of cupcakes. My stand mixer will definitely get a good workout this week, that’s for sure! ;)
Last July 24th, a good friend of mine, her son and I had a triple birthday celebration. It was our 2nd Annual Pink Party. I made the birthday cakes for mother and son. My cake, on the other hand, was made by my cake decorating guru of a friend. For this entry, the spotlight’s on the Yogi Boston Cream Cake I made for my yoga-junkie friend. :D Presenting, Camille’s Yogi cake…
Camille is into yoga, hence, the Yogi cake. She’s also kinda watching her sugar, so I searched for a low-sugar cake recipe. I found two recipes that I wanted to try and when presented with the cake options, Camille chose the Boston Cream Cake.
This was my first attempt at molding people out of fondant. It turned out to be a lot of fun! I love how the yogi came out..and the bag…and the roll of towel. :)
You can barely see the texture on the yoga mat, if at all. But believe me when I say that it is a textured mat. :)
The cake turned out nicely, getting the thumbs up of the birthday celebrant and our friends. Hubby, however, thought the cake was a little dense. Hmp! Well, he was right. The cake was a little pound cake-ish. :) The custard filling and the chocolate glaze were oh-so good, if I may say so myself. ;) You can find the recipe here.
After I molded my first person cake-topper out of fondant, there was no stopping me from making cake toppers out of fondant for my next cakes. You’ll see them in upcoming posts. Hopefully, it will not take me another full month to update. :P
