The Set Up:
I'm not even gonna lie... I was intimidated by this cake design.
Had Baby not been home directing me, this is where I would have stopped.
I mean look at how faithfully I recreated her unicorn drawing! Come on!
But to Baby's eye it was still missing some key details.
Way on the bottom of her drawing she has red, yellow, green, and blue 5 petaled flowers.
I REALLY didn't want to mix more icing colors! So, I enlisted Baby to make them out of jelly bellies. I am extremely controlling about cake decorating, so just know that took real effort on my part!
But it was still missing something. She insisted she needed those blue cats!
Enter bento picks I just bought for lunches.
Phew... that was a close one.
After that, Baby said "That is the best cake you have EVER made!"
(P.S. I have also developed the absolute, hands down, best chocolate icing you have EVER tasted.
For 100% real. Sweet baby Jesus... I don't even like icing... so I'm serious about this. It is like if you spread the most superior chocolate truffle you ever had on a cake. I mean it. More on that some other time)
