I try, I really do. I try to give my kids the most memorable and fun birthday parties! I have 5 kids and I don't work, so most parties are at our house. I try to give them something special, like Saturday, my six year old had a the sweetest teaparty and invited her classmates.
Gilrs and boys came and we provided dress up clothes for all of them. It was really fun. We collected old tea cups from thrift stores and the kids picked out one to use during the party and then got to take it home. I made the teapot and teacup cookies. It was an awesome party.
At least until the cake! Of course it was my first teapot cake and it went beautifully. But I forgot to make the handle and spout in advance. I realized it did not have time to dry.
I thought I remembered reading that you can stick them in the oven to dry.................I WAS WRONG! I was thinking of gumpaste, not fondant!
So I send hubby to the store for premade rice krispy treats. He brings home the generic brand and they are hard as a brick!!!! I had the hardest time shaping them. They were too heavy, so I was going to add them at the last second.
Well hubby walks in and says what are you doing? That looks just like a penis! I'm like, really? It really did!
Then my daddy of all people walks in looks at the cake and says, why don't you just cut the spout off a little and it won't be so heavy? (uh, why didn't I think of that? )
It looked so much better after I trimmed it! Thankfully no one else saw it before the surgery!
Below are the before and after.......ENJOY!
