I tend to not read many blogs besides the knitting ones, but occasionally I run across an interesting one that I add to my list. Two of my favorites are about food.
Cake, to be exact.
Bakerella makes some beautiful things, especially her cake pops. And what can be better than cheesecake on a stick?
Last week, though, she helped out on a marriage proposal. You can see the question here and then the explanation here. It just made me tear up, I tell you.
Another blog always good for a laugh is called Cake Wrecks where "professional cakes go horribly, hilariously wrong". While divorce isn't at all funny, Divorce cakes are. And how about these Literal LOLs?
Being inspired by all this cake-y-ness, DD#2 and I decided to make our own cake using fondant for the very first time.
What's the purpose of fondant, you ask? Well, it must be to look good, 'cause it sure isn't to taste good. Yuck.
We made lots of colored fondant, so we put on lots of stars (hey, we weren't eating them anyway, so the more the merrier.)
It was a fun experiment but I don't picture us doing that very often. It's a lot of work for something that doesn't taste good.
Move along, now, there's nothing to see here.
Nothing, I tell you.
