Yesterday was rather fun for me!
I'm making invitations for Liam's birthday party with the Mosher side. We are going to have a fun little BBQ with Jon's side of the family! And I had been looking online at different invitation formats and whatnot and I really liked the idea of the cake smash for the first birthday. So yesterday I set to work and started making a cake, because I didn't want to pay for someone else to make it. I made a layered yellow cake with vanilla pudding in between the layers. Then I frosted it and covered it with fondant that I made and decorated it. It was interesting, considering that I've never made a cake like that before... I just tried to remember everything that the Cake Boss does. It was a pretty fun event. Not going to lie. It took me about six hours to make this cake. I ran out of powdered sugar and Liam had just barely taken his nap so I couldn't leave so I had to run over to my neighbour Glen and ask for powdered sugar. But it was a really fun experience!
|The beginning of my cake. I made three rounds to stack up and only one didn't break off the bottom.... yeah. I'm awesome|
|After I spread the buttercream frosting on the cake|
|After rolling out and placing the fondant. It was a rather difficult process, and it was hard to pick up the fondant after rolling it out.|
|the finished product. It's not perfect but it's all good. It was my first cake.|
After finishing my cake it was time for us to take pictures of Liam so that we could put them on the invitations. I searched for a photographer who could take photo's that was in my price range, but I just couldn't find anyone. Everyone was so expensive and so I decided that I would take the photos myself. So I did. And they turned out pretty cute!
I think we all had fun yesterday. Liam sure looks like he enjoyed his cake. And I know that I can actually make a decent looking cake for my kids. And take their pictures/edit the pictures. I can't believe that my baby is going to be turning one. How crazy is that? Two months to go and I will have a redheaded one year old on my hands. I am the luckiest mom ever! I love this little boy!
