You know when you get all excited for a great idea, like decorating a cake for your cute hubbie's birthday (the big 27- he enters the "late twenties" as I enter the...well... you know) and then everything goes wrong, and you think "at least it will be a funny blog" but then your computer won't respond to your camera to down load the pictures- so it still takes another week to sit down and blog only to remember that you still don't really know how to put those pics on the blog anyways!! You know we have ALL had this happen!
SO I decide I want to be like my hero Stephanie (if you are reading this, please don't look at the pictures!!) and bake a wonderful cake for my hubbie. But instead of doing it the night before (like I should have) I do it the morning of his birthday. Now, I should explain that I LOVE baking. LOVE it! Yet, I should NOT be allowed to Bake. Baking should be for scientists, mathematicians, people who FOLLOW directions, people who PAY ATTENTION to what they are doing, people who realize that the person who WROTE the recipe was probably right, and people who read the directions ALL the way through before beginning! That is NOT me. So I start in on making the Marshmallow Fondant. (for the first time) While both kids are awake! Needless to say- between sifting 7 cups of powdered sugar- all 3 of us and the kitchen were COVERED in white powder! I was hurrying so that I could get it set in the fridge in time to frost during nap time at 12:30. (because I did not read the directions the night before to know that I should have let it set OVERNIGHT!) I got it done and baked little mini cakes and frosted that with regular butter cream- which somehow required spilling MORE powdered sugar all over me and the kitchen! I thought it would be a good idea to put the cake in the fridge while I rolled out the Fondant. My fridge was a little too full.....
Yep, that is my cake! Hours of Fondant and cake baking to end up on the ground.
Really? Who does this happen to?
JT doesn't even like cake.
Well, I made a little cake with the leftover rounds (since I made a mini) but was so sick of hassling with it (and it was time to work on dinner) that I handed it over to Riley to decorate! She did better than I probably would have!
SO I guess even if I SHOULD not Bake- Riley definately should!
And here is the Birthday Boy (Don't pay attention to Katie with NO MAKEUP!! obviously I was a little busy that day!!)
SO there you go, STILL A ROCKSTAR! :)
Happy Birthday JT!!!
