Cake Class, Part Dos

Alternate title: "I Never Said I Was Good At Spanish"

I'm sure all three people who read my blog are anxiously awaiting an update on how my cake went and, it was GREAT! I went straight to Blue Cake Company after work yesterday and worked tediously until about 10 p.m. WHOA. Crazy. Also crazy to think that I did not bake anything, make anything, prepare anything, NADA. I just decorated, and it took me SEVEN HOURS.

And people wonder why cakes cost so much.

Here's everything before I started:

One of the things we went over was icing a cake. I am terrible at this but I guess it turned out okay. Luckily I covered it with fondant so you couldn't see my streaks.

Buttercream iced and...

...fondant covered. Recognize that bow?

Anyway, enough of the boring stuff. Here's the thing you really came to see! The presents!

Doesn't Elfie look so cute perched up on his gift?

Rest of the class elves. Elfie's on the left again :)

Since I had a huge cake, I decided to take it into work this morning. I figured I would never eat it at my house (who would cut it for just one piece?!?!?) and my work buds are pretty big fans of food. Actually that might be an understatement.....They didn't disappoint and the entire thing was almost gone by 5. Luckily one little piece will stick around for a bit:

'Til next time.
