We had a potluck after aerobics today and since I'm the cake lady, of course I brought a cake...or is it? No really, it is a cake! This was so fun to make. I baked a 10" round chocolate cake and carved away the top edge so that I just had a big mound of cake. I covered it in piped icing noodles and added chocolate covered cake truffle "meatballs". The sauce is strawberry jam that I thinned out and poured over top. I think some people thought it was really spaghetti and meatballs at first glance. Too funny!
Oh, and I made a possible business connection, too. Our yoga instructor is also a wedding photographer and she says they are looking to work with a cake decorator. This could be a great opportunity for me. Although I haven't done wedding cakes before, I feel confident I could do it if given the opportunity. I think I will take the Wilton courses first and then try to work something out with her.
