Just for Fun!

Feb 12, 2011

So, I decided to make a little cake for myself and for my friend Jay whose birthday is just before mine.   I’ve always had a bit of trouble with “manly” looking cakes, but this added an extra challenge of trying to make one cake for myself AND Jay.  How to do a cake that is manly AND girly at the same time?  So, I’ve attempted to make the bottom portion in honour of Jay and the top portion a bit cuter to satisfy my own girlie-ness, while still co-ordinating colours and patterns.  My husband suggested I did not succeed in making it  “manly” after all.  Well… I tried! The pink cake is covered in buttercream and fondant.  The brown cake is just the complimentary icing from the chocolate zucchini cake recipe (found here:  http://www.suite101.com/content/dairy-and-egg-free-chocolate-zucchini-cake-a129222) I just got it as smooth as possible hoping to  match the fondant look of the top one.
