How To Make A Shirt And Tie Cake
Don’t be shocked, but I made a cake. AND decorated it. More than once. Yes this cake was a journey in the making, 3 x’s to be exact. It started out with a LONG consultation with SUSAN, who pretty much knows everything there is to know about decorating cakes. If there was a girl version of Ace of Cakes, it would be her. Queen of Cakes if you will (that has a nice ring to it doesn’t it, I smell a show) She assured me I could do this. I’ve dabbled with fondant before but it still terrifies me. She used words like easy, beginner, no problem, you got this. I countered with many a side eye.
begged asked my friend Deborah (who is also ah-mazing at cake deocrating and should have her own blog but doesn’t, yoo hoo Deborah get on this food blog train) to come over. I promised CARBONARA and a good time, because clearly this would be comical me + fondant. Our first attempt was during a dreary overcast day. Trying to shoot a mostly white cake, step by step just wasn’t working out. At least we had a good day laughing, eating Carbonara and of course making cake.
I made the cake a 2nd time, and then my computer decided to eat my photos and files. GAH (I need a new computer in the worst kind of way)! Which lead to the making of a 3rd and final cake. Thankfully the photos turned out and I now consider myself a shirt and tie cake pro ; ) In the beginner pro sense of course.
This would be a perfect cake for Father’s Day, Graduation, Grooms Cake, or for anyone who just loves starched shirts and ties. Trust me, if I can make this, you can too! And there’s no fancy tools required (it’s amazing what you can make using a decorating tip).
Pinky swear ; )
