If there's one thing I've learned this weekend, it's that cake decorating is not as easy as it looks. Early last week, Dave asked me if I could make a cake for his boss's birthday. After going through the options (a cake shaped like boobs, a guitar, a piano...) we settled on a Boston Cream Pie with the company's logo on top.
Making the cake was easy - my brother may have inherited all the cooking talent from mom - but if there's sweet stuff involved, I'm no slouch! (Though my custard was a little lumpy....but it tasted fine.)
The logo was a little trickier. I figured I could create a stencil, and just sprinkle the icing sugar over, remove the stencil - et voila!
Dave assured me it was delicious, and no one cared about the imperfections, but I think I'll stick to my knitting....
