Today is a special day for a few reasons.
First, I conquered Italian Buttercream. For some reason, streaming hot sugar syrup into meringue scared the crap out of me. But I did it. It was fun. Now I feel bad ass. My finished product: the bad ass version of dainty…
That’s yellow cake with apricot filling and amaretto italian buttercream.
Yeah, bad ass.
Speaking of bad ass, so is my sister, and it’s her birthday! She also makes cool cakes. See!
I’m not as talented. I should take notes from her. In a perfect world, we would live 10 minutes away from each other, my cake decorating skills would be as good as hers and I would deliver a rocking cake to her doorstep.
But sadly, we live about 2 hours away from each other and my cake decorating skills are subpar. A simple, but delicious cake, or photo of a cake, will have to suffice. Realistically, my italian buttercream tastes a million times better than fondant. I feel like that makes my pansy-looking cake into a bad ass.
Happy Birthday to my favorite
bad ass sister!!

Ahhhh what a beautiful birthday cake you made me!!! I love the colors, it looks so delicate. I’m positive it tasted way better than those fondant cakes. Next challenge….make a fondant that tastes super good! Is that possible?
