Some people call me a baker- I refer to myself as a dessert innovator. Even long before Cake Boss and Cupcake Wars were 'things' I found myself deconstructing sheet cakes and using rice krispies treats for 3-dimensional birthday cakes. I've made king kong, a pizza, a club sandwich, a bottle of Jack Daniels, a hamburger, ice cream cone cakes, a massive cupcake, and most recently the Reese's Cups cake. In fact, I have made my father a unique food themed cake for his birthday 10 years running, and usually start planning 6 months or more before the actual day. Yes I plan, and planning is so very delicious because, above all things, I intend for my edible art to be edible (not full of chalky fondant or cardboard rods) and only ever use edible elements for my creations. That means lots of trial and error and 'practice cakes' in the weeks leading up.
Sweetworks.net. Sweetworks sells many of the decorating staples used in the Cake My Day book and several of their bulk products can be used over and over across many of the book's designs and techniques so I highly suggest ordering the 14oz Sixlets bags and such when beginning a big cake project.
What Daughter Says: If only all of life's practice rounds were this delicious!
