Daisy overkill, sliding fondant & Melting icing oh my!
What horrible site! I had this great idea for my sis-laws bridal shower. She was having a Kentucky derby themed shower and gerbera daisies for her wedding. So I wanted make a nice arangement of diasies around the hat with a bow. UM WTF!!! I was in fondant hell! Never had such a horrible time! The fondant was way gooey and stretchy. The weather outside more humid and hot then normal and I have no a/c! (I live on the coast so it's rarely needed) Anyhow I had to use the daisies to cover all the cake flaws, I had to use major cornstartch to keep it from sticking (u can see on top of the hat) The fondant would not harden so I had NO bow!!
I iced the cake in white chocolate cream cheese ...learning now that's a bad idea !! UGH! So glad it was for family. The sliding side we turned to the wall so no one got a good look. People were still impressed and full of compliments but I was mortified!
