Today's post brought to you by

...the letter F - for Fehling's fondant frog! HA!

Here is my latest cake creation. My buttercream isn't particularly smooth, because I skipped the hot spatula step. I was tired last night! It's the white almond sour cream cake with chocolate hazelnut filling. I think this is one of my favorite cakes now. Such a tasty combo: slightly sweet white cake with just enough chocolate to enhance, but not overpower it. Good stuff.

The stars, the bow, and the frog are all fondant. I never made a fondant figurine before. I don't think it came out too bad! He's supposed to look like he's blowing kisses, but instead I think he looks a little like a bee stung him in the mouth. Oops.

A couple of the girls that I worked with at the hotel are having a barbecue for me and my husband today to celebrate the pending arrival of Sawyer. (Two more weeks!!!) That's what this cake is for. It's flipping HEAVY.

I have to go shower and run some errands before the party. Hope everyone has a great Saturday!

That is AMAZING! It looks so professional! I'm very impressed. Maybe you should bake cakes on the side for people's parties. I would totally hire you if you weren't several states away from me!

Very cute! So what if the buttercream isn't smooth. Cut and serve it before anyone has the gall to mention it.
