In the depths of winter in Canada (although it was a balmy 4C today), I can always depend on colourful icing to brighten my day.
The inspiration: Hannah Montana. Hmmm...I've never actually seen an episode of HM, or heard any of her music, but apparently young girls love her. So I headed over to the Bulk Barn to see if I could find some inspiration. And I did! They had these really cute icing decorations in the shapes of stars and guitars! Now, apparently these decorations are edible, but if you have ever tried one before, you know the next stop is the dentist. They are hard as hell and apparently only children can handle the sugar rush and tooth ache you get from eating one of these!
So, after a very, very long week at work I managed to get the girls in bed by 8pm. I threw the 12 inch cake in the oven and started making the icing. When all was said and done, I had finished a 12 inch round, chocolate fudge cake iced in hot pink, purple and aqua buttercream. Sadly, I was too tired to take a picture of the cake.
But I did take pics of the cupcakes I made in the morning to go with the cake!
These were made for Mya's 6th birthday. She was having 7 of her friends over for a 'spa party' and some HM karoke.
So, Mya, I hope you had a great birthday, and didn't crash too hard after the sugar rush.
P.S. I REALLY love my new camera!
