inspiration cake , and I took a bit of creative license and added more of this, a little that and before I knew it my inner critic was screaming, "STOP!." It's enough.
This 2-layer cake is French Vanilla with a ribbon of dark chocolate marble. It's frosted in a rose-tinted buttercream, and decorated with fondant cut-outs. The giraffe just peeks out from behind some jungle greenery. Flora never found in nature are splashed all over and the result is a fun cake to welcome my Godson Bobby's and his wife Brianne's first baby, a girl to be named Isabella.
I used to bake all the kids' birthday cakes. The most memorable cake for Bobby was a Bart Simpson cake, which, back in my earlier decorating days, was a pretty good likeness to the cartoon character. On the cake, Bart's text bubble read "Cowabunga, Man!" and I still remember what a hit that was with all the kids, about twenty years ago.
On nights like this, when I'm bone tired and thinking that it was six and now it's just five hours of sleep I'll get before I have to get up. I feel like an athlete after a big game. I've played hard and now it's time to rest and gear up for the next challenge.
Good night, good morning, my friends.
