to make a cake for the Relief Society Birthday
for this past Friday, March 19th. I'll tell you it
was stressing me out all last week and I wasn't
sure if I was going to pull this off.
I've never baked a cake for the board to try out
but they chose me from a handful of other
women they could've picked in the ward. So I
decided that I was going to do a fondant cake,
yes..umm I've seen it done on before but had
I made an actual one in real life? No, but I
figured I better try my hardest since this was
going to be something to feed 300 or more
So the first 5 cakes were apple cakes
then the base cake was 2 different layers of
marble cake. I baked the apple cakes days ahead
of time and let it set in the fridge until the
day of. I baked the marble cakes the night
before and was worried about getting the
fondant on while my two little ones are
watching in the kitchen.
The picture is blurry, Loni [6yo] was my little
camera guy in the kitchen. He was upset when I
wouldn't let him do the fondant balls. So I let him
take the pictures. It looks uneven because I have
3 cakes for the top tier and only 2 for the other
tiers. I had to make it this way because I knew I
wouldn't have enough fondant to cover the whole
cake. This is all from their budget of $100.00
My friend Sulu's mom came and posed by the cake.
I was in a hurry that I didn't get an upclose shot of it.
ok. so we ran out of the marbled fondant balls and
had to go with purple and neon pink. But they said
it's ok. this is before they post up the candles on
these are the tissue paper blossoms we made the
night before the dance. we attached them to fishing
lines and attached small mirrors the invisible line.
we didn't leave until 2 am. Then I had to be back
in the church kitchen by 8 or 9 am to start putting
the cake together.
Lani and Vaha used the table covers as swags and
rosettes for the wall decorations. neat huh?
These are the RS women doing a Bollywood number.
Another number from our culture called the Maululu.
I hope I spelled that one right.
I was trying to catch a picture of Nesi, in the line
dance. She's in the long pink dress holding hands
with her little friends.
