Through this blog I am hoping that it helps me to discover my life’s purpose…ambitious, I know, but I have to try something. Today I discovered…I am not supposed to be a baker or any sort of food decorator person!
I have a new found respect for cakes that are decorated nicely, even ones with frosting evenly spread upon them. Usually, when I make a cake it is purely so that I can eat it as soon as it cools enough to put some frosting on it, and sometimes I can’t even wait that long and take a piece with no frosting. Yes, I love cake, brownies, cookies…all that stuff.
So I decided that for today I would attempt two firsts.
1. I was going to make a 2 layer cake…never before been attempted
2. I was actually going to try to make it look like something.
There you have it, it is a hippo. It is actually supposed to by my stuffed Hippo that I take almost everywhere with me. His name is Chubba. Here is a picture of Chubba next to the cake.
