I’m posting this installment of my cake project in March, however it was created in February… But that’s okay, right? 😉
For Joe’s return from a work trip in England, I decided to make him something extra special! 🙂 He’s very much into his work, plays a big roll in all that he does for the company he works for, and really just loves his job (which is more than can be said for so many people). He also loves food. A lot. So I decided to draw up a few designs for a cake related to the company that he works for! Joe works in the information technology area of DHL, but I didn’t think a cake shaped like a computer would work with the look I was going for, so I decided on a delivery truck cake.
Unfortunately, the actual cake didn’t quite turn out how I had hoped… This is a learning experience though, so even unexpected results are welcomed! As with my previous heart shaped mini cake, this post has no focus on the recipe, but instead is focused on the process of decorating the cake with rolled fondant.
My lesson learned from this cake is a lesson that I also learned from a teacher back when I was in highschool: KISS (keep it simple, stupid!). Meaning, that for now, I should keep the design ideas simple. Regardless, it was a fun challenge to work on this cake! 🙂
Note: Between steps 4 and 5, I forgot to include a note saying to cover the cake in icing prior to applying the rolled fondant. This is necessary to ensure that the fondant “sticks” to the cake. Make the icing on the cake as smooth as possible to aviod any imperfections being shown through the fondant.
