11  COOKING / Dessert / Re: It's Turkey...for dessert! on: November 29, 2009 05:27:35 PM
The icing is just standard buttercream.  The reason it is shiny is because I sprayed a mixture of Karo syrup, water, and brown food coloring over it once the icing had crusted.
12  COOKING / Dessert / It's Turkey...for dessert! on: November 29, 2009 12:19:56 PM
When considering what to bring to the family Thanksgiving party, my husband mentioned that I should bring a turkey cake.  Not like a living turkey though, like one that has been roasted to eat.  So along with apple pies and sweet potatoes, we brought along this baby.

Everything is edible.  The potatoes, carrots, and leafy stuff are all fondant.  Just like a real turkey with white meat and dark meat, the cake has white cake (white chocolate) and dark cake (pumpkin). To bad I did not get a picture of it cut.  Oh well.  I had a hard time getting pictures that showed it off, but when it was sitting on the counter several people had to be told it was a cake and not a second turkey, which was pretty funny.  
13  COOKING / Dessert / Strawberry Cake for my Strawberry Girl on: July 12, 2009 04:04:57 PM
My little redhead just turned 2.  It does not seem right, but there it is...  Anyway, she is an absolute strawberry thief and is constantly rifling through our strawberry patch looking for them.  What better to do than to make her a strawberry cake for her birthday.  The cake is a white cake, but the filling is homemade strawberry pie filling (made from locally picked strawberries from the you-pick-it farm).  I put fondant strawberries on top, because, well...they are cute and I thought that real ones might get mushy.  The icing is cream cheese icing, since everyone seems to like it the best.

The top

And the catastrophe that happened on the 1 hour drive, in the heat, with my 9-year-old in charge of it, up to the area where my family was staying...

At least it still had a nice top for candles...

This absolutely rocks!  Me and my husband and kiddos love spending time in the garden in the summer.  Our 1-year-old already loves picking things, although she does not differentiate between ripe and not.  I hope you don't mind me totally pilfering your idea if I ever get the time.

Thanks for posting this. I think that my husband would really like a sweater like this. I am convinced that I need to get a Elizabeth Zimmerman book!

That is a frickin' awesome cake. I really like how you painted it versus just using a colored fondant.

I really like how you stacked the bride's cake, I have never seen anything like it. The groom's cake is also really neat. Most groom's cakes are small in my experience, but that is lovely. It looks delicious.

That is a super cool blanket. It looks really nice to snuggle into and also way rad to look at.
19  COOKING / Dessert / Cake for a 9-year-old on: October 02, 2008 08:19:39 PM
So, it was my oldest daughter's birthday this past weekend. She had a sleepover party with her friends, and of course I made her a cake. Actually, this is birthday cake the sequel since I made an attempt at a mad hatter style cake which tumbled down during the night. Thank goodness I had made it the evening before and not the day of! I learned a lot of lessons on the mad hatter cake though in trying it, so I should be good to go on the next attempt. She loved this cake though, and her friends all thought it was pretty cool. Some of them thought it was a fake cake until I told them it was real.

Also, piping a border helps to cover up uneven edges of fondant. I took the Wilton 1 class at Joann's and that helped me a lot with learning how to pipe frosting.
