That is too funny! A similar thing happened to me. Take a look in my photos at my Veggie Tales cake. Take a close look at the asparagus. I was so proud of those figures! I wasn't home when the customer came & picked up the cake. It just so happened that I work with the customer. The cake was for her little boy. One day @ work we pulled up the cake pic. to show some other co-workers. A few of them started snickering, & I had no idea why. Then she told me to take another look at the asparagus. I was so embarrassed. Of course, none of the little boys noticed it & the mother just thought it was so hilarious. Mind in the gutter!
Too funny! And I can relate. I was working on a green fondant "1" for my cousin's daughter's birthday cake, and I swear for a while it looked like I was gonna put Shrek's penis on that cake! I worked on it a little while longer until it wasn't QUITE so bad, but my cousin and his wife still cracked up at the big green penis on their daughter's cake. Good thing my cousins have a sense of humor!
AmyGonzalez- I just used the cake icer tip to apply buttercream then smoothed with a spatula as much as possible. Then I rolled with my handy dandy foam roller! Couldn't live without my roller! (thanks Mel)
I really want an excuse to make another one so I can make the handle and spout with fondant and let it dry. The ones I had made would have been so pretty! Grrrrr!
MessyBaker, Thats how I thought you did it. I use the exact same technique, but have never done it on a ball. I'll have to try it soon. And I agree, I could not live without my best friend in the kitchen...My handy dandy high density roller!
