I always thought when I stopped working and was home all day with Natalie it would be so super easy to start making cakes all the time. I would be home...therefore of course have all the time in the world...everything would be easy peasy...and I would be making money on top of doing something I loved!
Although I can see it in her eyes that Natalie really wants to help me with my cake decorating endeavors, the girl has no skills. Her frosting technique leaves much to be desired. So I am forced to work on these little puppies after she goes to bed. In other words, I had more time to work on cakes when I was working full time.
I was an idiot.
But last week a sweet friend of mine from playgroup asked me to make a cake for her son and I jumped at the chance. A new client! Something to do that involves making icing! I'm in!
The request was for a dump truck cake and pirate cupcakes. Quite a weird combo if you ask me...but here's what we settled on:
I thought everything turned out really well. Those pirates took freaking forever...but I was really happy with them. It was my first time working with fondant on the cupcakes and creating a design so there's only better things to come!
