I've been busy...

I've been working on the little details for three cakes due in the next couple of weeks. I actually had to stop baking last night because I ran out of eggs. So while the cake is in the oven, I'm working gum paste things for on the cakes I'm making. Last night I finished possibly the most difficult piece for the temple cake - the Angel Moroni (for more information click here). It took 30 minutes to form him, over night to dry, and 20 minutes last night to paint him with a light yellow wash and dust him with gold pearl dust for that shiny metallic look. This little guy is only 2 inches tall and will sit atop a 28" tall cake representation of the Washington D.C. Temple.
