RYANS CAKE IS FINALLY DONE!

This has been my work in progress for a couple of weeks now. This cake was quite the adventure for me. It seemed like everytime I turned around something went wrong with it.


1st- After I baked the cake I put it in the freezer in the garage (out of the way from kids...so I thought!). One of my kids pulled up a chair and opened up the wrapper around the cake and ate a chunk out of the side.


2nd- When the cake was found it was freezer burned.... thanks to one of the kids who couldn't resist eating my cake.


3rd- I didn't have time to rebake a cake so I am hoping it tastes good enough for kids to eat so I started decorating it. Thanks to a huge pile of frosting on one side of the cake I was able to get it to look good enough for the next step! But then after I started decorating it I put it int he fridge to take a break and one of the kids took a chunk out of the fondant after it was decorated... (Arrgh!!) I have my suspicions...but no proof as to which child got into it AGAIN! (4 year olds!)



4th- After fixing it with some more fondant to cover up the missing chunk I attempted to make the turtles and flowers that went around the cake... I gave up... I cannot figure out what the professionals do to make these things...



But after getting through all that and understanding that maybe my cake looked too good for a child to resist (I should be proud) then I was pleased with the result.
This is the cake I copied that I found on the internet.

Here is my version.

That looks so great Steph! I had seen that same cake on the net. Hopefully I'll get a chance to make it myself. I'm so impressed with how yours turned out, especially with all those little fingers digging into it. You can't tell one bit. BRAVO!!

As for the profile pic- it took forever for me to figure out how to do it! I had it on everything but the followers, for some reason it didnt show up there! I dont know what i did but i guess its working now!

GREAT JOB!! I could never do that. I bet everyone will love it and marvel over what an awsome job you did. I watch cake boss and I think they do stuff like the flowers and turtles with moulding chocolate.

Your certainly right, and its just so sad seeing her go! And Although i would like to follow my photography dream I dont think it will bring in enough money for me to support a family, so i think that will have to be a side thing for me. I still plan to stay with it and grow but I think i have decided to go with a more promising job! And it did take me forever to, I dont know whats with it!
