Well, this one would take quite alot of explaining, so I think I'm better off just showing you my masterpiece:That's right, it's a cow cake. A beautiful cow cake. Why?, you might ask. Well, I'll just say this.
My good friend Sarah was leaving the country for a few months, so at our gathering the night before we left, we celebrated/commemorated it with cow cake! No more questions.
This is a layer cake with Paula Deen's 1-2-3-4 cake recipe that I've used before, sandwiched together with chocolate frosting. Then I covered the outside with vanilla frosting, and then with rolled out white fondant.
Then I had to dye some of the fondant black - boy was that messy. Sure, you can buy black fondant, but where's the fun in that! Anyway then I cut out the shapes and stuck them on with a little bit of water, made the eyes and voila! Cow Cake!
You may all now envy my creation.
Tip of the Day: When dying fondant (or anything else) dark colors, wearing gloves will prevent your hands from taking on a similar hue.
