Our birthday girl is on the rowing team, so I made a replica of her rowboat in her school's colors. The rest of her cake followed a salmon and turquoise color scheme. Does anyone besides me have a problem mentioning salmon and cake in the same sentence? ;-)
I made her favorite shopping bag, and even a set of car keys, something every s16 year-old wants, but I had the most trouble with the birthday girls' pup! I initially starting molding the dog using Fondarific modeling chocolate, but I had to scrap it. It was just a little too wilty and wouldn't hold its shape the way I wanted. I made a quick batch of real modeling chocolate and that worked much better.
Thanks to everyone that stops and reads my blog; I enjoy telling you my tales in the cake trenches. Friday is Valentine's Day, so hug someone you love!!
