This is Jason’s cake. His birthday was Saturday, the Ides of March. It is supposed to be the COG cross (I thought appropriate for this first birthday in Ohio) . When I asked him what he thought it was he said, ” X marks the spot?”. Can’t blame him, it wasn’t exactly obvious. This was my first official try at using chocolate plastique to cover a cake (I thought it was appropriately manly), and I will say that it tastes WAY better than fondant, and was pretty easy to use considering it was my first real try. I also used ganache for a filling, and it is fast becoming my filling of choice. So yummy!!!
This is the cake I made for Jeana’s pink poodle party. (Yeah, I need to work on my handwriting.) Jeana is officially a big sister now. Her baby brother, Danny, was born last week! Congrats, Jenny…can’t wait to see him.
