This week is another busy week. Packed with fun, two cooking shows, a baby shower I am helping put together, a preschool field trip, and now a sick toddler who I think may have shared her bug with her big sister. They share so wonderfully.... sometimes.
For the baby shower, this Saturday, I am making two cakes. A diaper cake and an edible cake. This is my first adventure in the diaper cake category. I feel it was a success. I have decided to go into further detail on how to make that tomorrow.
Today I made tasty fondant. Really, it is very tasty. It isn't the tasteless box stuff you can buy at most places, although if you use flavor oils you can make it taste better. It is a very simple recipe (thanks to google.) I don't know what website I got the recipe from but there are many places that show this recipe, and now I will share it as well.
1 2lb bag of powdered sugar
1 bag of mini marshmallows
3 tbsp of water
that is it. If you take the time to make it, it is much cheaper. There are other recipes, but this is the most basic.
Speaking of no one eating cake, this is my finished cake for last weekends competition. I got no feed back, so I don't know how bad they really thought it was. Please no comments on how much you like it, I was happy with it, however I was completely out of my league on this one. The cakes that won deserved to win and I am happy for them. Including my step sister who won 3rd.
