another day another cake

Welp, tomorrow is another birthday party. This time for my (husband's) niece who is turning 18. She is a truly unique and special person, who does not fall to peer pressure. She likes what she likes and she doesn't care if you like it or not.

I decided to make her cake. I have to admit I was clueless as to what to do. An 18 year old woman who has her own style. I asked what she liked she said "batman" and also gave me a list of colors. Well, as you can imagine my husband took over with ideas and we decided on the batman logo. I have to admit, I think it was the easiest cake I've done! Even with all the cutting. I'll have to show a picture later, right now it's covered with plastic wrap. I was afraid all the cut edges would lead to piles and piles of crumbs and make the cake look like something that came out of pond filters. However, I cut it, then stuck it in the freezer for an hour or two and I was amazed at how easily the icing spread! I'm going to have to remember that!

So tomorrow morning we will get up and I'll ride an hour and a half with a huge piece of plywood containing the cake on my lap. Just another reason why a mini van would be nice... We'll have fun I'm sure, Lexi has been talking about going up to see her for a few days now, she's a little excited.
