So my little break was great and I got back home late Sunday. I had put the frosting and cake in the freezer over the weekend and had my roommate pull it all out on Sunday so I could build the cakes on Sunday night. I got all the layers filled and dirty iced and stuck it in the fridge.
Today, Monday, I did all the cool frosting work. I put some paper glitter stars on wire and had them sticking out, which turned out pretty cute. The top tier of the cake was on a cake board covered in foil and I used straws to stabilize the cake. I like straws because they are easy to cut.
I really need to take more pictures WHILE I am making the cake. Sorry about that.
The party went really well and Gabe loved his cake. It tasted awesome and was a big hit. I even got home in time to watch Cake Boss!
