Normal size cake

23 Nov

This weekend I actually made a normal size cake! It fit in a regular cake box and everything. Dan was very happy about that after last weekends monster snow moutain.

It was for a friend’s dinner party. The cake is Vanilla bean with salted carmel buttercream filling (gives it a nice salty/sweet punch) and vanilla buttercream then covered in marshmallow fondant. The fondant didn’t go as smooth as I’d hoped. A lot people will buy fondant because it is a little tricky to get the right consistency but the homemade stuff taste so much better. I was having a very hard time with it. I made two batches and one was too sticky and one was too dry. After fighting and negotiating with it I made something work. It wasn’t what I set out to do with the cake but it looks great and everyone at the party enjoyed it.

There are actually roses in the center, but they kind of get lost in the photos. I really should have built up a little mound for them to sit on. Oh well,next time.
