Ms Potato Head

I was asked to do a cake for the president of Stylenet, and since she seems like a fun person who would appreciate a quirky cake, of course I said yes. Ms Potato Head is wrapped in chocolate fondant with modeling chocolate parts. The shoes and hat are rice krispy treats, also covered in modeling chocolate. I know its a little lumpy, but I don’t buy pre-packaged anything, and I always end up winging the recipe for my fondant a bit. Besides, she’s a potato.

[edit] Here’s a photo of Heather with the cake and her new friends:

On a side note, while I’m doing these cakes at a highly amateur level (trying to make only modest financial investments in the process) I hear the voice of Kerry Vincent in my head telling the viewing audience that while this is the best fondant work she’s seen from me so far, I need to practice my technique. Hmm Bob Ross & Kerry Vincent…am I the only one who does this?

On another side note – John liked the cake and took his own photo:

Definitely a more interesting photo than mine. If you’d like to follow his photography, here’s his photostream.

    You’re very welcome – but I think Phillip was worried no one was going to get to eat it!
