jumping the bandwagon...

I've decided to jump on the blogger bandwagon...

I started my blogging adventure...which by the way only started 2 days ago...with tumblr.  I did more research and it sounds like I'll be able to reach more peeps on blogger...ergo here I am!

Like I posted earlier on tumblr, last week was uber busy for me.  I had 2 dozen cupcakes and 3 different cakes to work on.  One of the cakes I created was for my good friend's little brother's 30th birthday.

I was asked to make a replica of an MPK...a drum machine for all you old school heads.  :-)

The cake was chocolate with peanut butter frosting as filling between the layers.  I used dark chocolate buttercream to frost the cake and covered it with Satin Ice fondant. 

I attempted to make my own homemade BLACK fondant...my fondant ended up in a dark, army green colour.  I guess I can always use it next time I have to make an army theme cake. :-p

I LOVED LOVED LOVED making this cake!  I loved adding all the little details, all the buttons and doohikeys.  I had to make sure the sliders and knobs had the 3D effect...I think those sliders and knobs turned out very well!

I made sure to do a Barry Horowitz and give myself a pat on the back for a job well done.
