Baby Cakes


Since it has been a ridiculously slow week in the kitchen, I thought I would post about an old project of mine. Just around this time last year, I was in Chicago for my sister-in-law’s baby shower. I volunteered to bake and decorate the cakes for the party. Although I underestimated the amount of time it would take for me to decorate, and the icing got a bit dry from sitting uncovered overnight, I was happy with the way they turned out. After all, it’s hard to make cake taste bad :)

These are darling Kim! Love it. Did you know that frosting/icing was invented as a way to preserve cake. So it wouldn't dry out. The frosting sealed in the moisture. This was pre Tupperware and plastic wrap of course! Just a piece of trivia in case you didn't know.

Hmmm...thanks for bit of trivia Nicole! It makes sense, but then how do you prevent the frosting from drying out :) I didn't dare cover the cakes with foil because I was afraid it might touch the cakes and ruin all my hard work. Plus they were way too big for a cake stand. Maybe a cake box would have worked, oh well, next time. They turned out fine anyway.
