Back in December, Mr. Detail secured me a gig decorating a cake for a co-worker’s daughter. I’ve been decorating cakes since I took classes at age 12 or 13. However, I’ve only done it for fun and for family and friends. Never for pay! I was pleased how it turned out, although I knew it wasn’t perfect. It was a bit stressful, but I’d likely do it again because it was fun too. I’m sticking to buttercream from here on out. I had attempted to fashion the My Pretty Pony with fondant, but after some difficulties with it holding it’s shape I decided to go with what I know. The cake itself was a from-scratch basic chocolate cake that is a tried-and-true recipe from Hershey’s.
