Lets just say its hot here. It was 95 degrees yesterday and if felt even hotter. So what do I do on a hot day? Swim? Nope, bake a cake Hah! I actually made this last night and it had cooled down nicely. I made a delicious lemon cake with lemon curd filling and lemon icing -yum! Too bad its not for us I sent it with my husband to work. So this week i decided to use the Sesame Street cartridge. I loved making cookie monster it was so easy. Just three colors blue, black and white. And are you ready for this? I used the Wilton sugar sheets for the black background. It actually worked great as a background because there was no intricate parts just the outline of cookie monster. Also rolling out the fondant went so smoothly last night and I am guessing it is because of the weather. I put colored sugar crystals around the edge because I was going to pipe a design around the edge but the icing was just too runny from it being so warm. So It came out OK. I need to make a bigger cake because my designs are too small and I want to add multiple things and its really hard to do that on such a small cake. I am really loving my Cricut cake machine.
Also this week I bought a gypsy!! I got it from amazon and when it came I thought there was some sort of mistake because it looked like it was preloaded with alot of cartridges. Well, I was wrong. too bad you can see them but you cant cut with them- hah! Anyway it took me about 3 hours to register and update this thing! Then, another hour at least to load all of my cartridges because I think I have around 90 or more. You would think that having that many cartridges I would at least make some more interesting cakes right? LOL. Well, I'm trying. So maybe next week I might try using the gypsy with the cake machine. I guess we will have to see. Thanks everyone for reading
Also only 22 more days until the Disney Classics cartridge giveaway! Wow! I cant wait!
