When the recounting of your vacation takes longer than the actual vacation itself, you know you’re sharing too much. Or maybe I just took too many pictures.
Anyway, I was able to attend my sister-in-law’s cake decorating class one morning. She teaches at BYU-I.
Isn’t she cute?
The gigantic commercial kitchen was way cool.
Here’s my Rice Krispy cake, covered with fondant. That’s right: fondant. When I was a kid, we had those Childcraft books. In one of them there was a cartoon picture of a girl cooking and a big bubble where she was saying, “I’m very fond of fondant.” I had no idea what fondant was back then–I figured it was something like divinity.
I only found out what fondant actually is about two years ago. It’s rolled icing, and not as easy to work with as they make it look on the Food Network.
I only had time to make and cover my cake during class, but I took my extra fondant home and played around with it.
My mom said, “That’s a . . . happy cake.” Very happy.
It’s a lot like Play-doh, really. Only edible (although Eden still eats Play-doh . . .) and stickier.
Unfortunately, I don’t know if I could actually do this again. It was sure fun to make, though.
I think I can finish up our “vacation” in one more post–stay tuned for our visit to the sheep farm!
