My daughter's fondant bow cake didn't turn out so great but I improvised when the bow didn't stick together like it was suppose to. Oh well. I tried. The cake still turned out beautiful!!!
Poor thing is sick too. I was suppose to stay home and make a birthday dinner and cake but early in the morning, I took both girls to the doctor. They were both diagnosed with BRONCHITIS!!! I was glad I took them because yesterday I called and they said they couldn't be seen until next Tuesday. Today I called early in the morning before taking Josceline to school and they said they could be seen that morning.
By the time we got out of the doctor's office and waiting around Wal-Mart for their prescriptions, it was already 1:00 P.M. and we still needed to eat lunch. So off we went to Olive Garden, ate, went back to get medications, spent another 30 minutes to settle health insurance error, and finally the 1 hour drive home.
Needless to say, I started the fondant bow set up (I made the bow loops Monday) at about 3:30 P.M. It didn't have enough time to harden. Then I made the cakes, frosted them, put fondant on them, then attempted to salvage the gooey bow for about 30 minutes. Finally I gave up, made an improvised bow, and took a gagillion pictures.
The power kept going off but I believe we started eating cake at about 7:30 P.M. Lindsay didn't know what it was since it had about a pound of fondant on it. I finally opened it up and let her and Josceline eat the actual cake. MESSY, MESSY, MESSY!
