Last night I made a 9" round cake, 4 layers with raspberry mousse and vanilla buttercream completely from scratch in 1 hr 50 minutes. I started the cake at 4:15 and put it in the display case at 6:05. It's gotta be a record of some sort. The fact that I was very, very angry over raw cake rounds could be behind the speed at which I accomplished it.
This morning's cake was done in a much more leisurely fashion. I made this for a co-worker.
It's tons of fun to stick fingers in cakes on purpose. :-) The 'water' on the board I made by spraying food coloring on foil wrap then putting plastic wrap over it while it was still wet.
Just a FYI wilton foodwriters don't work on gumpaste until it's completely dry.
