Just made it to see if I could -- then I needed to find someone that would like to have it. Called my church and they are having a leadership conference on Thursday, so I delivered it and it is now in their cold storage.
Learned a LOT, will do some things different next time. But overall, I was pleased.
All is edible, sugar cones, cake cones, sugar cubes and buttercream frosting.
Its absolutely fantastic! Well Done!
Looks GREAT! I bet that was a lot of work.
Nice Job! It came out great.
You really did a great job. I'm sure the church was very grateful. How nice of you to do that.
Great job! What a great idea to use sugar cubes! I love it
Thanks everyone for your nice remarks. I did so many things WRONG. Where do I begin ......... (do you all remember your newbie days?)
I made three 9x13 cakes and carved them to the sizes I wanted. Should have just made the size cake I wanted so I didn't have to carve and waste cake.
when leveling the cake, I turned the cake upside down - now I know I need to level the cake right side up.
I stacked all the cakes and then frosted them, really??? I so should have known better than that. I first crumb coated the cakes and then I stacked them so I could put the final icing on -- way wrong.
Transporting the cake -- that's another issue all together. I should have waited to put the top cone on but I had enough bamboo skewers in them to build a bamboo collection.
But the cake (the piece I carved) tasted awesome WASC with buttercream frosting and I used half shortening and half butter. Haven't had buttercream with butter in a LOOOONG time. Yum.
It looks great!
