The Sailor, Miss Kitty and The Jungle

8 Aug
What I thought would be a pretty normal weekend with 3 parties turned out to be the busiest week I have ever had. I got orders to make a sailboat cake, Hello Kitty cupcakes, and a jungle cake with matching mini-cupcakes all for one weekend. Remember, no one helps me bake or decorate. It is all me. These 3 cakes together was my biggest challenge, so far.
It started with a 10″ chocolate cake covered with cerulean fondant icing. I made a sailboat using navy blue, white and red gum paste. I decorated it with an anchor, a lifesave and real shells. I used sea blue buttercream icing to make waves under the boat and a shell border around the edge of the cake. I added a happy birthday banner at the back.
