Happy Monday Everyone!! I wanted to stop by and show you guys a part of the reason I've been absent, and what has been consuming 150% of my time....I give you my Cradle Cake! This was modeled after a combination of 2 pictures, and the clients color scheme was also customized. The original Cradle Cake was of course made the wonderful and sweet Shawna McGreevy...one of ma' cake heroes!
This cake took FIVE days from beginning to end, the first 3 days were dedicated to dry time for the actual cradle pieces. Then the baking and assembly took about 2 days total. It was a French Vanilla Cake with a Fresh Strawberry filling inside, and the teddy bear was all modeling chocolate...so it was equally delicious. I've been working on MANY more cakes, not just this one, but to date this is the most time consuming and difficult cake I've ever made. And let me tell you, I was in HOG HEAVEN! I loved every second of it! Every. Stressful. Second. ;-)
