Hobby #239

There is a lot of news to report, but this is the only piece with a picture, so....this is what I'm blogging about this evening...I had put my cake decorating bags and dyes away for awhile and pulled it back out this evening to make a cake for my friend's son who is turning five tomorrow. He is in love with super heros, and more specifically Batman, unfortunately there are not any Batman cake pans at the moment on the market, so we negotiated on Spiderman. We planned out the cake....and then about ten additional people rsvp'd, so we add some cupcakes to the mix (complete with a little web and plastic spider...which was a bit of an overkill). For ALL of you who are planning on taking up cake decorate ;o): the most difficult thing about coloringicings are black and red colors, so a lot of my efforts were concentrated there (but I finally got it where I wanted it). I also made the error of putting shiney side up on the foil, or else you would be able to see the additional 'Spiderman cupcake holder detail.' I remembered why I don't do this often-it takes WAY too long and makes a HUGE mess. Regardless of that detail, I'm glad I put some of the supplies to use....another cake down. I hope it will be awhile before I do another, but I enjoyed it while it lasted and know I will want to do another one, it's always fun to make cakes for my friend's kiddos.

Well done Christy! I LOVE this cake! Keep practicing, because I totally expect a cake of this quality for my baby shower, even if it's just us to attending!! :)

I'm ready for your shower, if it's just you and I, is there really any other necessary names for the guest list to make it a good time?
