Here's the latest in my cake adventures. Though I must admit, it's been too long since I've done a cake! Are you all afraid to ask for cakes because I have twins at home? Come on, admit it...... okay well, maybe it's not cake season. All I'm saying is that I'm in the mood for sugar. And I have a new flavor, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough cake. Does it sound too much? Well it's not - definitely going to be making myself one soon if someone else doesn't want one. Or, I've been in such a mood for an ice cream cake lately, the recipe I have in mind has oreos, ganche, brownies - everything you could ever want in an ice cream cake. I must find an excuse to make one... anyways, back to this cute cow cake.
You're looking at a 3 "moo"ed cake (that is, 3 cows on top of a cow decorated cake). Decorated with the birthday girl's name, flowers & of course plenty of sugar & butter. One of my favorite parts of this cake is the homemade chocolate marshmallow fondant on top of almond buttercream. Yes I know I'm supposed to hate fondant, it's supposed to be disgusting and only to make a cake look good - not taste good. Well too bad, I really like the homemade marshmallow kind, especially with a good dose of cocoa powder in it. (Plus it's a lot easier to get the black color starting from brown instead of white). I have to admit that I had some left over from making the cake & I just had a few bites here and there until it was gone. So with all of that said, fondant CAN taste good.
