I was asked to make a cake to celebrate a co-worker's 40th year of being a nurse. I decided to experiment using Fondant , and I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was! I made Marshmallow Fondant, which consisted of melted marshmallows, butter and powdered sugar. The cake itself was 2 layers of Graham cracker cake and a layer of chocolate cake in the middle covered with chocolate butter cream. I made the pills, band-aids and syringe out of gum paste and the stethoscope out of fondant. I enjoyed making this - it took me quite awhile, but I had fun doing it!
I also made some cupcakes to go along with the cake - they were Snickers and Strawberry Sour Cream with Cream Cheese frosting. I did not get a photo of the Strawberry cupcakes, but these were the chocolate ones. Again, the band-aids and Nurse Hats were made out of Gum Paste. The photo quality is not the best because the pics were taken with my phone. :)
I made these cupcakes for our annual Potato Days party. I used the chocolate cupcakes recipe from the Snickers Cupcakes and made up a Peanut butter frosting out of butter/peanut butter/vanilla and powdered sugar. After I piped it on the cupcakes, I melted some milk chocolate chocolate chips and mixed it with a little milk to get a thinner consistency and then drizzled it on top of the cupcakes and garnished with some candies. They looked yummy and were a hit!
