So, I have this super amazing friend, Jamie. She is SO amazing that she just got an awesome job offer for after law school. Soooo proud.
And she is cute: This is us together on her last birthday (warning – silly, self-involved photos are about to follow):
Jamie used to have a Bichon Frise named Chip. Jamie got him as a little girl, and unfortunately, dogs don’t live as long as people, so Jamie had recently said good bye to sweet lil’ Chip. RIP. (Fortunately, all dogs go to heaven!)
So I made Jamie this cake for her birthday:
The cake was chocolate. The frosting was cream cheese (what other kind is there? Honestly?). The eyes and nose are made of one of those chocolate calcium chews that I rolled into flat discs. The tongue is actually a rose petal. I made the fur by doing lines of frosting for all tufts of fur. It was pretty simple technique to use, but took a while to complete the whole cake. I don’t have any pictures of the process, for which I apologize.
Anyway – this post is a shout out to Jamie and her awesomeness. And a shout-out to Amanda, who came up with the rose-petal-tongue idea. And to me, for making an awesome, tasty cake. Both Jamie and Amanda are awesome combos of suits and aprons, though they are maybe suit-ier than I am.
Wow you make some pretty amazing cakes! I have no idea how to do that kind of thing. It looks so hard! How long does it take to complete something like that?
Not counting the mixing/baking time, the shaping/ decorating on this cake probably took about 2 hours. Partly because i didnt have a frosting bag, and the plastic bags i was using kept breaking.
