“The Dodgson Girls” Cakes

13 Jan

A friend of mine directed a show downtown that required a cake to be eaten in each act!  So he asked me to make 14 small cakes.  It was a lot of fun to do these little cakes and combine two passions theatre and cake.  They are covered in buttercream, which in some ways is easy and others not so much…

Because they are small cakes, I put them one cardboard and then in a box to be delivered.  I was making a few trips, this was actually the second, so it wasn’t all 14 cakes.  As Dan was putting the box in the car, the tape on the side of the box broke and he almost dropped the box.  Neither the box or the cakes hit the ground but they did all slide into each other.  So I had to take them back in, scrap all buttercream off an re-decorate them.

The second weekend of the show is this weekend.  I’m going to see it on Sunday I think.  If  you’re in Ithaca this weekend looking for something to do, check it out!
