I know, I know. My last blog post was on Tuesday and today is Friday. I'm trying to post everyday Monday to Friday and the occasional weekend post. But you know when you just have one of those weeks? When it rains it freakin' pours...
Anyways, last night I helped my friend with a Shakespeare-themed cake for her students. Shakespeare's Birthday (and Death-day too I suppose) is next week, so she wanted to make an educational treat for her high school students.
Presenting...our "Twelth Night" love triangle cake!
Last night was also my first introduction to Royal Icing in cake class. Royal Icing can either get so tough that it hardens instantly or it gets so slimy that it goes everywhere. We made quite finicky Royal Icing birds and flowers. Let me tell you, cake course level 2 is a whole different ball game.
To celebrate my initiation to Royal Icing, here are some fabulous icing creations. I believe both types of cookies are made with Royal Icing.
