Wayback Wednesday

I shared my first fondant cake last week. Let's see another pathetic cake! It isn't as bad as the last one, but it ain't much better.  You've met my friend Melinda a few times, like here, here, and guest appearance here, plus some others. Years ago, Melinda had a birthday. And it's pretty close to Cameron's birthday. You met him and his son a long time ago.

To celebrate their birthdays, we went out tubing on the river, a summer ritual around here full of all sorts of adult fun!  And I decided to use this as a cake theme. And this was my first try at fondant figures! I bit the bullet and bought the Wilton's precolored stuff. This was the result:
I apparently hadn't quite got the leveling thing figured out yet. It looks decidedly lopsided. And the writing? Text looks okay if you're drunk or have Taco Neck Syndrome.
 This tuber really shouldn't be out here. Gingers burn awful fast.
 This little guy was an homage to Erik, Melinda's hubby. See the six pack?

There isn't enough sunscreen in the world. What's up with the Wilton's skin tone choices?

The beer cooler, an integral part of the tubing experience. Beer and sunscreen.

The scenery along the river. Notice the beans? They're supposed to be rocks. They just don't look like it much, do they?
Headless Erik.

We've come a long way, haven't we? Next week is cookies!

  1. awww, I loved this cake though! And thought it was so amazing when I saw it. When you point out the flaws I guess I see them...but still, I love this cake! =)
