Hey everyone. The 11th was my Mother’s Birthday, and right after that I got really sick with a super long flu, so I’ve been a bit lazy about drawing new comics. But anyway, as promised, here is the cake that I made for her…
Well. first: the original design that I drew on a sticky note. I thought, “Aw this won’t be too hard…I’ll just make two cakes, cut the pieces out of the second cake, and hold it all together with some icing.” That’s what I’ve done for pretty much all the fancy cakes I’ve made before, but this one just had a lot of problems.
Well anyway, the cake was a white cake this year. Usually it’s some form of that heavenly thing we all know and love as chocolate, but I thought I’d try something new. While it was tasty, I’m not sure it was quite heavy enough for what I was using it for. My first cake came out just fine. I let it cool all the way, and then I flipped the heavy glass pan upside down and let gravity do the rest. X) The second cake was not so lucky… I did not wait for the cake to cool all the way and it cracked under the pressure, in almost a prefect X. I then had to flip it over and piece it back together like a cakey jigsaw puzzle. I then cut out the other pieces (which turned out to be a lot harder than I had originally thought it was going to be), frosted it, decorated it, and then waited for everyone to come home so we could enjoy it. I didn’t think it turned out very good, but you can be the judge of that.
I’m also going to show you all the other cakes I’ve made for Mother’s Birthdays before.
Well these are my cakes, I hope you enjoyed them.
If you’d like to know how to make the Jack-O-Lantern cake for this Halloween, it’s really easy. If you have heart shaped cake pan, you’re in luck. If you don’t, you may be able to find one at Michaels or Walmart.
- Bake a cake of your choosing in said pan.
- Wait until the cake and pan have cooled completely before you flip it over. Give it a few taps, or bangs if its being stubborn.
- Then to make the pumpkin shape, you cut off the point of the heart in a curved slice to make the bottom of the pumpkin.
- You can use the extra that you just cut off to make the stem. Shape it how you want with a knife.
- Frost and decorate in whichever way you wish!
(Note: The cake takes a while to cool and just in case you mess up and want to try again, you may want to start early.)
