WHO'S EATING WHO NOW, BITCH?
So my mom used to be a cake decorator. She worked on an assembly line icing and decorating cakes (she clocks in icing an 8-inch cake around 8-13 seconds)... and also decorated cakes for her own business and other bakeries. She made her own wedding cake, which served OVER 9000 (1300-2000, actually). She got sick of it about 10 years ago and gave it up, but after very recently discovering "Ace of Cakes" on the food network, she got back into it. Our whole kitchen is filled with cake shit.
Anyway, I was helping her with some fondant and decided to make an Audrey cupcake. I'll admit, I actually got the idea because ma' showed me a picture of an Audrey II cake that someone had submitted to the community on the Ace of Cakes site.
It started off nicely, but after letting him dry for a few days he decided to crack all to shit and fall apart everwhere. I intended on making him fully edible, but ended up having to use rubber cement to glue pieces back together. And toothpicks for support. D :
But it's still mostly edible. The majority of him is home-made marshmallow fondant (for those not confection vocab-savvy, picture sculpey clay, except edible and you have to color it yourself. And for those of you not sculpture vocab-savvy, sculpey is a very kickass clay for making very fine, minute sculptures. XD ) Some of his vines are buttercream icing... and then of course, a chocolate cupcake. Which was supposed to look like... soil or whatever. I was going to make a pot or a coffee tin or something around him but I'm incredibly lazy and didn't want to eff it up even more. XD
Anyway, enjoy! NOM NOM NOM
