First off... sorry it has been so long since the last post on this blog! Its not for lack of time in the kitchen.... I have been focused more on breads and cooking. I guess I could pop that on here too, but the cakes, cookies and cupcakes are so much more fun to look at! That being said... I was asked to do Sophie's 1st birthday cake so of course, I had to make the super moist chocolate cake I do so well (from scratch).
|You can't see it due to the icing, but there is a layer of chocolate icing and a layer of cream cheese icing as the filling|
|I didn't ice the lower half as I am going to ice it with chocolate icing for the 'ground' of the forest|
|I used the same stencils I drew for the puppets on the cake. I freeze cake as it is much easier to work with especially when needing to cut out small details|
|Here they are! Next time I would consider icing before placing them on the cake as it might be easier to ice on the sides. Ultimately, I am a perfectionist and it really doesn't matter if they aren't done perfectly, it will still taste yummy!|
|I iced trees on the sides of the cake too... I like it when a theme covers as much of the cake as possible|
