Lessons from a red hat cake
I learned alot from this cake.
First - don't be so sure that the cake will let you sculpt it the way you think you want it to.
2nd almond extract is not a suitable replacement for butter flavoring. 3rd - duff fondant is tough as nails and not at all streatchy. It is yummy, though, and easy enough to work with. I would likely use it on a straight layer cake or for cut out shapes next time, rather then a hat shaped cake.
4th - aww heck - it didn't turn out the way I wanted - not at all...but it's done and I think Mom will love it...or at least I hope she will. DH said it's "great"...but he's drawn to all things frosting so I'm not sure that I can really trust him at his word. lol Anyhow - here she is...
2 down - 3 to go! :)
*note* I'm not sure she "Loved" it...but it did make an impression. :)
