I Was Up All Night Baking Cakes
Last week I decided there wouldn't be food at the Daddy/Daughter dance. Of course this decision was made because I was feeling a little overwhelmed with everything that I was trying to get done. Late last night I pulled out the clay and got busy. I decided to try my hand at making some cakes. This was my first time trying a new technique. I didn't quite master it, but I am happy with my first attempt. I am pretty happy with the way the strawberries turned out. Not bad for 3am. I particularly like the little leaf because I went from "how in the heck do you make the little leaf?" to what you see in the picture within minutes. The strawberry leaf angels helped me out with that one.
Just a picture with Danielle to show scale. There you can see a couple of the other cakes. I forgot to make a chocolate one. I will probably make brownies instead.
So, there will be food at the Daddy/Daughter dance. I am still working on the menu. I need kid friendly food that will not stain those pretty little dresses. Feel free to make suggestions of things you would like to see on the menu. I can't promise that I will make it, but I will at least consider it.
