Let them eat....

I'm in party-mode again. A fun girlie baby shower tomorrow.
Unfortunately what that really means is that I'm irksome, absentminded, and a bit stressed. Poor Mr. Renn.

I spent about 6x longer working on this confounded cake than I was planning to. Why do I always plan so inadequately? Always. "Sure, I can get that done in 2-3 hours." Where is my brain when I think thoughts like that? What about the 2 extra trips to the grocery store to get the stuff I should have realized I didn't have on hand? That might have added some time. Having to knead the darn color into the fondant....20 minutes. Running out of chocolate frosting, and then being (really dumb) and buying frosting that has mini chocolate chips in it? HELLO, HOW WELL DO YOU THINK THAT IS GOING TO PIPE THROUGH A TINY DECORATOR TIP?!?!? Really, I wonder what is wrong with me.
All I can say is, this cake had better get eaten!

Em as always you have surpassed yourself. And I'm like you in that I always figure I can do something in half the time that it actually takes me, but isn't it worth it for all the oohs and aahs you get from it?

I can see all the blood sweat and tears that when into it, it's beautiful!!

Wow, that cake is awesome. I can totally relate to the feeling of watching what you thought would be a quick project turn into a never-ending saga. You did an awesome job though.

I just cannot believe the cakes you make! They're so cool! I'm too big of a chicken to try making fondant. despite the catastrophes, it looks awesome! I'd totally eat that cake!

soooooo after watching/being addicted to ACE of Cakes and then seeing what you I want to try. I have failed miserably in the past even getting normal frosting on a cake to look good so I don't know why I want to try fondant but you've inspired me to want to try. It's beautiful. Please post recipes for fondant and what exactly you do. :-) It's gorgeous

Do you make your own fondant? I've always wanted to try! The cake is fantastic! I'm sure it will get gobbled up!

Holy cow, Em, your cake is AMAZING! (And that's coming from someone who has decorated cakes in a bakery before!) I've never touched fondant, and I never dare to. Well, maybe, if you let me in on your secret.
