The Start of Something Big

The Gir Cake
"Doom Doom Doom"

For a homeschool project, KellyAnn wants to make cakes to sell, to raise money for a trip to Waterford Ireland, to (hopefully) meet a homeschool family from Ireland (we found a connection, just have to email them). We will be Twittering the process and updates while we're in Ireland. We haven't set a date, this is the first phase of her project: Research. Plan. Document.

Let Them Eat Cake

Ok, so this isn't the Ace of Cakes. It's not even close...BUT it is the 1st cake Kelly Ann and I've ever done like this. Our St. Patrick's Day cake!

It was fun to make, but such a different learning curve. Being as visual as I am, I look at it and it looks easy...but the minute I lift the fondant I am lost. The tinting, the consistency, smoothing it...I plan on teaching myself to be comfortable with it...I'll keep you posted.

If anathema had four legs,
and crept up from the hideous dregs,
I wouldn't help it, yet I couldn't ignore,
because its very presence I abhor.

thanks to @rikmeistr (do you Twiiter?)
