So, this weekend, I made a cake for a friends daughters first birthday. It was a princess themed sheet cake and a matching princess smash cake. I made the smash cake, no problems there. I wanted to make an edible tiara. So I made one from gumpaste earlier in the week. Go to put it on the cake and it breaks in half. Ok, so moving on I dont have time to wait for another one to dry. So I make one using a pattern and piping wilton candy melt onto parchment paper. It turns out beautiful. I dust it with disco dust. Perfect. Pick it up to move it to the cake, drop it on the counter and it shatters. Third times a charm I suppose and I make another one and finally get it on the cake. Both cakes are complete and look beautiful. I go to take a shower and leave my husband in charge. Grab my camera after my shower and come into the kitchen to take photos. There are little tiny finger prints all over my cake! I had to start all over!! In the end there were two beautiful cakes, but it took twice as long as it should have. A very long cake day!!
