A Sweet 16 Birthday Cake for a Sweet Girl
For a sweet girl. This cake actually wasn't exactly suppose to come out like this. It was suppose to have one more tier on top. BUT! after putting the crumb coat on this cake, my right hand literally gave out. I didn't know what in the world happened...... this has never happened to me before! But all I could say, the next morning I couldn't even hold my coffee cup....it was that painful! My husband, whom lives with Tendinitis, says you are using your hand too much!
I wrapped it up put on the brace that my son once had when he broke his hand and let it rest the full day. I sat there and wondered "WOW, What would I do if I had no use of my right hand?!?!" I live to do artistic things; whether it be cakes, photography, digital art..... and to live in pain the way I was that day was really an eye opener in so many different ways. And WORK! By trade I'm an Esthetician and that would just put a HUGE damper on making a living.
The cake ended up being decorated on top of the crumb coat. Thank goodness I had all the elements done days prior. The ribbon wrapped around the bottom was suppose to be fondant. All in all the cake came out beautiful. The crumb coat could have been smoother but I had to work with the abilities my right hand had left me.
Danielle loved her cake and it was plenty to feed everyone, with some leftover. Cake flavor was Oreo Cookie with Oreo Cookie Vanilla filling.
