I don't know why I do this to myself but here goes another cake adventure. Jenna requested a "Jessie" cake this year and I am trying out a new technique. Today I am baking the cakes, yes I said cakeS! 4 boxes of cake mix (still not brave enough to make cake from scratch!) = 2 12x2 inch cakes and 12 cupcakes. I am going to trace Jessie on to one cake and Bullseye, her trusty steed, on the other cake. Since I was only able to get 12 cupcakes I will spell "Happy 5th Bday!" on them. I know it's just cake but since I started out making "cool" cakes for her birthdays I feel I have to continue. It turns into many hours of work and stress. But, seeing the smile and awe on Jenna's face, makes it all worth it in the end. I will post a picture when I am done. Although I can't start until I go buy an icing tip for writing...seems I have misplaced my tip, although I vaguely remember getting so frustrated after my last cake adventure, I threw stuff out. :) Oh well....fingers crossed this one goes better.
