Today I'm going to be cleaning the house and making a cake! And I am TERRIFIED! Not terrified of the house cleaning, that I can do. I don't WANT to do it, but I can. It's the making of the cake that I'm terrified of. Somehow I got it into my head (with help from Husband) that I can make a "Cake Boss/Ace of Cakes" cake. At first I was like "oh hell yeah I can do that!" Now? Not so much.
I've got the cake mixes. There is NO way if I'm using fondant for the first time, I'm making a cake from scratch! I bought the pre-made fondant...at Walmart no less! I was not expecting them to have it. I was going to make my own and called around of glycerin and it was $20 for 18 ounces of it! Oh hell no! First of all, I don't need 18 ounces of it, second of all, I'm not paying $20 for something I don't think I'm ever going to use again! Now all I have to do is bake the cakes today and decorate them tomorrow. I'm scared!
I've got a pretty good idea of how it's SUPPOSE to look in my head. And I've enlisted help from Tracy, but I'm pretty nervous. I'm not quite sure how this is going to turn out.
Tracy says it'll be easy. Husband says it'll be easy. Peaches say it'll be easy. Me? Still not sold on the idea. Any fancy cake decorators want to come to Oregon and help me with this cake? You can sign your name on the side! I'll pamper you before and after the cake is done. I'll let you boss me around. Whatever you want! I'll even kick Peaches off the couch and you can sleep there. I make REALLY good omelets and coffee, so we can have a wonderful breakfast. Any takers? Please?! *sigh* didn't think so.
OK, off I go to attempt to make this cake. Hopefully I'll be able to update ya'll tomorrow with pictures of a BEAUTIFUL cake and hilarious stories of how it all went down....
