Another Cake In Progress
Here I was watching my least favorite show in Food Network while I'm on my knees at my coffee table. My hands covered in shortening and food coloring. I've been rolling and coloring gumpaste and fondant. The rest of my little family has been in bed for hours already. I'll be headed there shortly myself, but wanted to show off my progress toward this cake so far. The color isn't exactly right in the picture, but what you're seeing will be buildings that go around a cake in the process of being destroyed by our little Transformer friends (in the back). As you can see, they didn't spare my little palm tree in the path of their destruction. This cake is going to look awesome when it's done! Now I think all I have left is to make the flames that will come out of the buildings and bake and frost the cake. I'll be sure to post up pictures when it's done on Sunday!
Speaking of destruction. My worst enemies, the local squirrels, demolished my very first tomato of the season today. I shook my fist in the air, but they weren't around. They were probably eating someone else's barely ripe tomato as well. It was my first orange one, too! Any advice on how to keep them away from my veggies??
