Pretty in Blue





Today, Chris, Bronze, Charisma and I went to Aspen's Birthday party.   We gave her this adorable barbie doll cake.  At first I was going to make a figurine doll cake.  I decided against it because the party is out of town.  The sheet cake is 9"X13"X4" marble cake that is filled with chocolate buttercream and covered in vanilla buttercream.  Barbie's skirt is stuffed with rice crispies treats.  I shaped the fondant into skinny sausages to make the creases on the skirt.  Barbie's dress is then covered with blue fondant and white gumpaste to finish the look.
I am soo nervous.  My hands were extra shakey.  Hahahha...  I put my heart and sweat in to that cake and I am just worried that it might taste like crap.  I tasted it and it should taste great.  hehehe worried for nothing.  ANYWAAAAYS....  Somebody called the kids to see the cake.   When Aspen and her friends saw the cake they all said in unison, "Whoah!".  Then Apen's brother Kaden said, "Carousel that is a really great cake". I smiled and said, "Thanks".  So yah I am soo thankful that everyone enjoyed the cake.  This is my second most favourite cake.    (Girlie Mardi Gras cake is still my number one favourite)

Olaf Rice Crispy Sculpture

Build a snowman in the summer with rice crispy treats and buttercream.   I can't say I miss the snow because I am perfectly happy with this warm weather.  Just in case, here is one way to make a snowman in the summer.  But before that here are some pics from my niece's Frozen themed birthday party.



Here is how I made Olaf....

You will need:

3 preparations of rice crispy treats (found in any Rice Crispy cereal box)
about 150 g brown fondant
60 g orange fondant
250 g black fondant
250 g white fondant for eyes, teeth, and cheeks
1 preparation of shortening base buttercream
3 large bamboo BBQ sticks
1 foot bendable florist wire
toothpicks
gardening sheers

Make Olaf's head first since this will determine the size and the proportionality of the whole sculpture.  The recipe found in the Rice Crispy cereal box is perfect amount to make Olaf's head.  Use the microwave method to make a chewy and more malleable rice crispy treats.  Let the treats sit for a maximum of 8 minutes…

Pilipit - Filipino Twisted No Yeasts Donut

Pilipit is a Filipino style donut.  It has a crunchy outer shell and a soft inside.  It is similar to bannock or elephant ears.  These are similar to donuts and leavened with baking powder.  Traditionally coated with sugar or glazed

I coated mine with powder sugar kind of like their elephant ears counter part.  But you know what they are perfect on their own without sugar.  The dough is sweet enough to hold on its own.  


The ones that I made are for some reason soft on the inside.  I'm certain it's because I rested my dough for more than 30 minutes instead of the usual 15 minutes.  If you guys want more crunch in your pilipit just proof it (resting stage) for 15 minutes or less.
