So, into the trash can went my perfectly furry blob of MMF, into the bath went the sullen dog (no MMF treat for her, save the bit she managed to lick off of her leg), and I am gleefully off to wrap my cake up with the easiest stuff to work with in the world....Wilton! Aha! Good thing I keep a bag of the crusty old crap around for accents and dummy cakes! This cake will be the peel and eat variety. Eh, saves me the hassle of making new fondant. Thankfully, this is cake for the family for Thanksgiving, so no tough critics to please with this one.
By the way, the cake is going to look like a big bowl of fluffy mashed taters, complete with fondant butter pat, wooden spoon and chopped chives.
