Hello CC world!
This is my second post and I'm very new to 'making cakes'. I've made about 4 cakes that you could consider a little more advanced than box cake and slopped on store bought frosting.
My friends birthday was coming up last month so I wanted to make her a cake. Some of her most favorite things are astrology, suns, etc. So I made her a pisces cake (I am going to post in the decorating thread shortly) and this Sun. Well, I don't think I have to explain why this cake just didn't quite live up to my creative vision. And even though I made her a different cake (which this was supposed to be an element of) I did present this to her as a gag cake first.
I told her I was going for a sun but ended up with a virus... The slightly intoxicated crowd of my girlfriends belly rolled for about 5 minutes so it was still a hit, despite being a disaster. :)
It is orange cake with buttercream filling and a thin layer of orange marmalade in the middle. The peaks are royal frosting (my first time making royal frosting and a round cake). It's airbrushed and spray painted gold.
So here's to my virus! (No one got sick in the consumption of this cake and surprisingly the orange was refreshing and good!)
