I got a great deal on a Whimsical Cake Class, only $25! I asked Chris if we had the money and for such a great deal, of course! Then I got the supply list! I have to bake 2 - 12 inch cakes, 2 - 9 inch cakes, and 2 - six inch cakes, and they all have to be pound cake! I found a recipe for the bottom tier which I will be serving at church, it is honey-whole wheat pound cake and I will be using palm sugar for the cake and frosting. I wanted to use palm sugar for the whole cake, but that would have been over $30 for just the palm sugar! Not to mention the about 6 pounds of butter I'll be using! Needless to say the two top tiers will be cane sugar. Did I mention the over six pounds of buttercream that I need to make?
I also need a pvc pipe cutter. I'll have to pray someone has one I can borrow, because after buying 6 lbs of fondant (about $16 with a coupon) I'm broke. I have a little bit of fondant and modelling chocolate left over from a previous project, I hope it will be enough for the decorations. If not I'll try to save back a few dollars in case I need to buy more.
I had trouble figuring out what a sewing gauge is too, it turns out to be a metal flat thing I already have in my sewing box! I learned something new!
I have lost my roll and cut mat, it would not stay flat so I stopped using it, who knows where it is. I also need separator plates, dowel rods, spatulas, rolling pins, pizza cutter, cake drum and etc. PTL that except for the cake drum I seem to have everything else! I'll have to make the cake drum out of some pizza rounds that I got (sounds like a great job for Chris!)
The class is two days away and I still cannot decide on the design! I want whimsical gerber daisies, and garden with toadstools and bugs, and elegant. There are so many to choose from! I am excited about my class and I know the Lord will provide everything I need, He always does!
