two uteri, two mamas pregnant, AGAIN, with baby number two

brunch cake August 13, 2007

Filed under: ttc — charlotte @ 5:26 pm

I made this as a gift for a friend who had a brunch shower for her 2nd baby. She has a great sense of humor so I was going to make her a D*ck in a Box, which she LOVES (you know the Saturday Night L.ive skit with J.ustin T!mberlake), but decided that the ladies coming to the brunch may not “get” that. Maybe for her birthday. Hmmmm.

Anyway, this cake, inside, was the same as the cake: chocolate with chocolate ganache and whipped cream served on the side.  Fancy pants.

The table cloth is made from fondant and everything else is made of gumpaste (a sugar modeling paste that dries very hard).

I made: cheese sandwiches, cookies with jam, swiss cheese and french bread (notice the browned top), cupcakes with frosting and cherries, bagels, jellie roll, fruit bowl, chocolate cake with powdered sugar, a fish, and a plate of celery and carrots. Oh, and presents with bows. All edible, although probably not super tasty.

So yeah.

I guess I make cakes?

    I have no idea how long it takes me since I do it in various spurts, all told probably 10+ hours, but I’m still learning, so I’m slow.
