And that is my little walk down memory lane! This past week was crazy. I had good intentions of getting the cake ready on Thursday for Ashton's party on Friday. But then Brenna got sick and messed everything up - just kidding! The poor girl got a virus that turned into an ear infection. It was rough on us all.
But back to the cake. I love making these cakes for the kids. I sat down with Ashton to weeks ago to look online for cake ideas. He thought it was the coolest thing. to do! We poured over 40 or so different cakes until he chose this one...
Ambitious? Yup. Then again, I'm starting to get pretty good at working with fondant. Each cake has steadily improved and become the new "best cake" yet.
Here is my version...
The blue cake was carrot cake with a cream cheese filling. I pulled the carrot cake from The Pioneer Woman. I made the cream cheese filling by mixing one box of cream cheese with a stick of real butter, a pinch of salt and enough powdered sugar to give it a thick consistency. The cake was covered in fondant.
The meteor on top was made using Rice Krispy treats and covered in fondant. I then added bronze, silver and white pearl dust to add a rock-like texture.
We were blessed to have our friends and family over as well. It was a great day overall.
