French Fries and Wedding Cake

McCake [1]

My mom’s birthday was this weekend and my sister and I each made her a cake. I made one with fondant [2] to look like a box of McDonald’s fries (her favorite food and also my first attempt at a stacked/carved cake). I definitely want to practice this technique more. I need to learn a few tricks because after a little while my structure started coming apart. I’m just glad she saw it before it did. And next time, I think I’ll put a little sugar on the fries to look like salt and make mini cupcakes with red frosting to look like ketchup. Yeah… i’m lovin it!

[4]Now, for my sister’s cake.
Mom told my sister that she wanted wedding cake. Actually, she says that every year because she loves the way it tastes. I must have inspired her lately though, because my sister went all out and baked a cake and made it look like an actual wedding cake. I’m pretty proud and a little jealous that I didn’t think of it. This was the first time she made homemade frosting and only the third cake she has ever made. Pretty awesome I think and my mom got a good laugh out of it, too.

She certainly wasn’t expecting a wedding cake or fondant french fries for that matter.

Happy Birthday Mom!
