Last Monday night we celebrated Kim’s birthday. For years Jon has been bragging about his superior cake decorating skills (he won a blue ribbon in 4-H and everything) and so we finally decided to put all of that knowledge to good use. It turned out better than we ever could have imagined. A couple interesting points:
- There would most certainly be roses…if we had a rose nail, rose tip or really any cake decorating supplies… I’m lazy and use a ziploc bag to frost cupcakes and was lucky that I happened to have a few random tips to pull off what we did.
- Cream cheese frosting is SUPER soft-even if you firm it up with more powdered sugar. The longer we kept decorating…the more things started to slide. It made for frantic frosting.
- Upon discovering we had sparkly sprinkles, pearl sprinkles and every food coloring-all of those things became necessary.
- We probably laughed the hardest while choosing which coloring book page to trace. The majestic look of this horse head really “took the cake” and the fact that most people had to stare at it for a full minute before realizing it was a horse head confirmed we made the right decision.
Overall I think Mr. Davis and I could go into the cake decorating business. But I digress.
Kim decided she wanted to go bowling, which seemed like an excellent idea until we realized we have 400 children combined. They had a blast AND no one dropped a ball on their foot so the night was a success!
The cake was well received. Cinnamon BELONGS in cream cheese frosting-it was SO good.
