Nicole's Bridal Shower Cake




My Niece is having a bridal shower today.I spent yesterday making her cake. They decided on a "Round the Clock" theme. They sent us a suggestion and gave us each a "time of day". For instance..I had the five o'clock hour and they suggested a cookbook or dinner gift certificates.This way..she would get a gift that would be useful during that time of day.I think it's a cool idea and you certainly know what to look for as a gift.:) The theme is the reason for the cake design.My sister asked me to make a cake with a clock on it. The colors were a bright pink but not neon...hehe and the green that was on the invitation. Hope I captured it all for her.:) The size of the cake is 12" round.Two layers..one chocolate and one yellow...just for variety.hehe
It has been about seven years since I decorated cakes for a living. Jim told me it would be like riding a bike..but I was a little wobbly getting back on.LOL I was surprised that I could still accomplish it.The hardest part was making the icing to a consistency that I could work with. Oh..and the clean up.....Ay yi yi!! LOL I am a very messy cook.:)
I even baked a chocolate cake and iced it with canned chocolate icing..for my family.:) They loved it.:)

On another subject...I have told some of my blogging friends that I am gonna take some time off of the blog.I have soo much I need to catch up on around the house and with it being Spring..and the pollen is everywhere and on everything...there is some cleaning that needs to be done...sorting of junk mail and organizing to be done. I think I will only post when there is something I really really want to share.:)
Hope you enjoy your weekend!!

Hugs,
