Starting two cakes for the weekend–a tiny teddy bear and Bob the blob from “Monsters vs. Aliens.” Three-dimensional cakes are my absolute favorites (sheet cakes are boring-they all look the same to me) and it’s been enough time between projects that I’m actually looking forward to these.
I’ve always thought that cake decorating is kind of bizarre. I put it in the same category at ice sculpting and sandcastle building–projects for people that need some sort of time and labor-intensive creative outlet, but don’t want their art hanging around too long, staring them in the face. The fact that my masterpieces also get EATEN is maybe something I shouldn’t analyze too much.
I’ll post pics, in case anyone wants a how-to. . .
