Look what I made

This was just fun, and I thought I'd share. Can you tell what it is? I offered to bring a cake to our RS Activity tomorrow and my month was August. When I think of August I think of school starting (regardless of whether or not it actually starts then), and I found this off the Wilton website. The fun part is that its a jelly roll cake....and I made it! I had no idea what that was, but hey, the internet is a wonderful thing. I have no idea if frosting will taste good on a jelly roll cake, but this is what they get. I probably could have left the jelly out...hmmm. Oh well, too late now. It would have been cooler if I would have done the four other colors as well, but I started this after 8, and....I'm done. It also would have looked better if I had used fondant, but I'll admit that intimidates me. I'd love to play with it, but making it makes me nervous...and I didn't have enough marshmallows to give it a try. Anyway, just thought it was fun. Oh, don't mind the pan, or the mess on the pan...I took a picture as soon as I was done.

Tarah, you are just amazingly creative. I love it!

Oh, I talked to Nate (like 5 minutes ago, because I forgot) and he's checking it out and tomorrow at work he'll ask his boss if it's OK to take a week off right after a 2 week class. (Yeah, I didn't think about that part...) Anyway, I'll let you know tomorrow. :)

Way to go. That must be why you didn't answer when I tried calling you back. :)

And, is Nate asking time off for TOFW?

Marshmallow fondant is actually really easy :D i've made it a few times now and it turns out pretty well. It's just the mixing part and making sure it's the right consistency. But it's hard to REALLY mess it up :D

It super cute! I've heard that fondant doesn't taste very good, but it could just be the pre-made wilton stuff. I'm not sure.

Wow. I'm so impressed. I wish I could come tonight, but Ema has a soccer game at 7 :( Have fun and let me know how many ooh's and aah's you get from your cake!

Heather said...

Way too cute! I love it. I may copy this idea from you!

Wow, so fun! I wish I had the guts to be creative, but I'm pretty sure my end result wouldn't be nearly as good and cute as yours! I'm jealous of your RS!

So I made a totally wonderful comment to your blog about the marvelous cakes you have been making and I even did the word verification, but it didn't show up. Must be out there in space somewhere. I'm so disappointed not to be in the comment group that I had to try again.
Thanks for the cake picture. I love it.
