So anyway, first I want to show you the ice cream cake I made Vince for his birthday. It was pretty cool. :-)
3 layers of brownie and 2 layers of mint ice cream
Covered in chocolate buttercream
I melted chocolate (the attempted tempering didn't work) and made Spiffy Co. logos
and attached them to the cake with some melted chocolate
The ice cream was fabulous but the brownies need work. And there was just far too much brownie. More ice cream next time.
Today in class we started on our wedding cake projects. I didn't get very far because I ran into some issues with my sugar paste (basically rolled fondant). It's what will cover the cake dummy layers and it was just too dry and kept cracking. I have a possible solution that I will try tomorrow. Cross your fingers! Anyway....
These are the cake dummy layers that I get to cover
I made my sugar paste TARDIS Blue *hint hint*
I will be purple for DAYS! (this is AFTER washing my hands 3 times)
Hopefully tomorrow will go a little better. I have some gum paste (basically edible modeling clay) in my bag here at work tonight that I'm going to play with and make some test figures. :-)
