Happy Birthday Kat by Mylares Happy Birthday Kat by Mylares
Once Upon a Time, in a faraway land,
A young prince lived in a shining castle
Although he had everything his heart desired
The Prince was spoiled selfish and unkind


From: Beauty and the Beast

Happy Birthday Kat! I hope you had a wonderful day filled with friends and more importantly, cake! Much love and well wishes on your happy day! :giggle: :smooch: :love:

P.S. Address? Still got something here for you...:aww:


WOO for inactiveness....NOT. Inbox is a total fail at the moment. =( Anyway, let's not discuss that. Moving on to the cake. This was the most difficult cake I've ever done! It took me a full two days!

The first thing was dying each and every piece of gum paste each individual color. And then I had to create a template for the stained glass window and cut (with a knife, I left my exacto knife!) each piece.

Next were the cakes and here is where I met my biggest problem. I had left the correct (size) pan for this cake at home! Thus I used what I had which was 13 x 9 pans. If anyone has tried carving with these, or trying to fit much of anything complicated on them you know how hard it is.

The top layer is milk chocolate, bottom layer vanilla, and the middle was strawberry middle (basic recipe from my mom). It was a tough mixture to work with and nearly impossible to cut. Thus the pages were not actual cuts in the cake, but layers of fondant.

It was a very long, hard process full of unexpected problems, but in the end I think it came out very nicely. And it was delicious too!

Haha, it's a cake! It's just the materials I had to work with were not the best so it didn't turn out quite like I had planned.

:giggle:

But thank you very much! :hug:

Your ability to combine many art forms at one time is amazing. And quite delicious-looking, I might add :giggle:

Now, if/when you go back to Texas, I don't wanna hear another "I forgot to bring..." or "I left (insert random object) at home" :shakefist: Is that understood, little missy? I dislike attempting (and utterly failing) to console you over the phone about such things. Makes me feel awful :(

Still looks amazing. I'm glad you could do something special for Kat that she hopefully enjoyed/appreciated :giggle::hug:

That cake looks too good to eat. And the description, maaaaan! I don't know what to say. I really appreciate all the work you put into making this. Although we've yet to meet one day for sure, you should know that you already hold a special place in my heart.

Thanks again, dear. :heart:
