I baked 3 sheet cakes. I stacked two and the other one I cut in half and stacked at the two upper layers. I iced the cake in blue icing. I also used merengue powder to create royal icing and piped seaweed leaves the "Goo Lagoon" signs and flowers (the flowers that float in the background of all Spongebob episodes). I poured a combination of corn syrup and water (a gel icing of sorts) to create the goo lagoon. Crushed graham crackers made the sandy beaches of the Goo Lagoon! I used plastic Spongebob, Patrick and Squidward that I purchased online from a baking supply company. Hints: When using a gel icing to create a water feature your cake needs to be completely level - even carving a little depressed area so that it doesn't run over the sides of the cake. I was using pieces of toyal icing seaweed to create a dam and stop the river of icing trying to flow over the side! This was my son Noah's 7th birthday cake and he loved it!
This is my first STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE Cake. I had gone to see all in internet to copy exactly and when time come I got inspired and this is the result. I am going to tell you now why I did this cake; my grand-daughter's second year birthday. I have like strawberry shortcake for years but now that my daughter liked this theme for her daughter, I said it is my time to show my talent. I took fondant cake classes back in 2001 and do not practice much. I normally do not do cakes for no one, I do them only on special occasions eventhough I have been told to prepare more to make a business on them. I have this fear of failure that cannot beat. This is my first step to put my first cake on this site and see if I feel more confidence on myself and share my creativity as well. thanks for reading and hope all is well.
I made this cake for my little girl's 3rd birthday party. It was a lot of fun, especially with my sweetheart's help. She had green fondant all over her beautiful face. The cake was white with buttercream frosting and marshmallow fondant. Everything Wilton!! I've learned from past cakes to make the fondant figures 1-2 weeks ahead of time. The strawberries were so easy to make. A toothpick helped with the seeds and a calyx cutter for the stem. My favorite addition was her name, which was also fondant. The main colors for the birthday party were hot pink and lime green. I used a 12x18 inch wilton cake pan, we like left over cake. I love this website, it has inspired me to keep practicing. I make cakes for fun, mostly friends and family. Happy Birthday My Sweet Girl!!
I saw these in a cupcake book and thought that they were very fun and different. I HAD to try them out.
Supplies Needed 1 box cake mix 1 can vanilla incing 1 can apricot halfs cupcake liners
Bake cupcakes as directed on the back of the box. While your cupcakes are baking, drain the apricots and place on a paper towel to them to "drip dry". Once cooled icing the cupcakes, this should be kind of messing since it is supposed to look like an egg. last but not least place an apricot half ontop of each cupcake. Do each cupcake one at a time so your icing doesnt harden on you.
