I have been very busy with cake orders the past few weeks, which is one reason it has been a couple of weeks since my last blog post. The other reason is that I started a new job in a field that I NEVER imagined I would be in! I am now a medical assistant at a Chiropractor's office! Who ME?? Ya, I never dreamed I would have a job like this. Ive always had jobs in a "creative" field. However, since I have been unemployed for a while now, I thought I would try my hand at something new....and, the job was offered to me. :) I am finding it challenging but I really like it a lot. They are training me on the job. When I'm not working, I'm making cakes for people.
A friend of mine asked me to make her son a penguin cake for his birthday. Ive made a few in the past but I wanted to do this one a little different than the others. I don't like to so the same cake twice, if at all possible.
I started with three 8 inch cakes and two 6 inch cakes..
Then the fun began!
Then starting at the top of the cake, I carved a notch out of it and followed my toothpick line.
Then I frosted it with homemade whipped cream frosting! (Yum!!) And I handmade a bunch of penguins out of a fondant and gumpaste mixture to go on the cake....Here is the finished product!!
