Maggie’s birthday cake

Posted by admin on June 2nd, 2013 filed in Bakery!, Birthdays, General, Magdalena

The Beb wanted a Wreck-It Ralph cake for her 4th birthday, so I made her one.

We started with her telling me what the cake needed, and I drew up a plan:

Then, fast-forward through several hours of work, I had made cake pops, a giant decorated cookie, lots of icing, and a huge cake. Ta-da!

Here’s the cookie before I put it on the cake. I used the icing run-in technique for the first time. You pipe an outline and then fill in the blank spaces with runny icing. It hardens and is supposed to leave a smooth surface.

I had a little trouble with the icing staying perfect on the cake during transport, and had to patch it up when we arrived. Also, the cookie showed a few stress marks from being moved around. I was still pretty happy with it, and Maggie liked it too.

Want to know a secret? I hear that Megan is a bit of a show off when it comes to baking.

    Hehe, thanks! Though, nobody does smug like the Quaker Oats guy. Have you seen him? I strive for his level of smugness.
