For my cake for this weeks class, I decided to make Bakerella's Red Velvet cake. Our teacher asked us to icing it with a chocolate top so it would resemble a drum.
I spent most of my Sunday making my cake, making tons of icing for this weeks cake and next week's cake, and then icing the cake in prepartion for class. Basically I was working the time management skills that I don't usually have...I was feeling pretty great that I had everything prepared a day ahead of time because I am definately a procrasitnator and generally wait for a couple hours before class to begin my "masterpiece" (and I use that term in jest.)
So imagine my surprise, when my cousin and I are sitting in the parking lot at cake class talking about our cakes, and I realize that ....
I FORGOT MY CAKE!!!!
I had ALL my supplies and icing....but no cake!!!!
Luckily I was able to run back home and get it, and the class was nice enough to sit and chat while I was gone so I didn't miss a thing!!
So what did I learn from all this????
That I do much better waiting to the last minute!!! (-:
So I present to you the "Drum" cake...aka the crazy clown cake.
I have to say when I saw just the "drum" cake that my teacher made, I wasn't seeing the whole picture. She hadn't added the clowns yet so I was thinking it was a pretty unimpressive project albeit a great cake for practicing.
And here is my daughter patiently waiting for me to finish up pictures so she can dig in.
And this is my elusive son giving it a thumbs up. He hasn't gotten any blog time lately because he manages to avoid me and the camera, but today he allowed me to take a picture so I am definately posting it!
