The Donkey Cake was not an easy order--but it was one of the most fulfilling. I love making celebration cakes.
Initially, my husband and kids said it looked like a bunny--the ears and lack of a muzzle didn't help. With a few modifications, we were on a roll. I detailed the final pieces with eyelashes and and a mane and voila! Donkey cake! Who knew she'd be just perfect for the birthday girl??
I created a carved cake last weekend that was all cake. No rice cereal head or inedible pieces to supplement. I believe that putting together a designer cake should be creative and be...well, cake. It's not easy I admit. But it's possible.
I cut out mini-fondant flowers and made a pink bow -- all out of pre-colored rolled fondant.
