OK, I know, I’ve been a slacker, don’t shoot me!
But it is June and you know what that means, time for another birthday party for The Boy and another birthday cake. This year The Boy is turning 8, and he’s all into Skylanders.
So I’ve been working on the cake today. It’s not going to be as ambitious as last years Dalek cake for the Doctor Who party, but I am trying out a new technique: Candy Clay.
Today I made candy clay, baked 4 cake layers for a 2 tiered cake, frosted the top and bottom tier with a crumb coat, and made up and colored a batch of marshmallow fondant. whew! I’m going to go play around with my candy clay now….
So, follow along on Twitter if you like to see pics of the in process stuff.
