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!

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!
