I Love Blogging
Thank you! You guys are so awesome! This is why I love blogging... I can come, write about a crappy situation and you all pat me on the back, give my a cuddly blanket, a good book to read, a box of cupcakes and a bag of M&M's to make me feel better! Okay, so this is all VIRTUAL stuff, but still! Your good words make me FEEL as good as if I had those things! So, thanks!
NOW! Wanna see what I did last night? It was so fun! Well, I enjoyed it. I made a royal icing tiara. How weird am I?? (Don't answer that... it was a rhetorical question) I saw one on Slyn's site awhile back (by the way, if you get a chance, you should totally dig through her posts... she has made some amazing cakes... this one and this one are my FAVORITES). The instructions were on Cake Central. I started by drawing a ton of different patterns. They were all pretty cruddy. So I got a pattern from the Cake Central website. Printed it off and then taped it around our oatmeal container. Then taped parchment paper over that.
Then, you just follow the pattern with the royal icing.
I did 3 layers and this is how it looked when I was done.
I am not a professional by any means. I'm hoping to hide some of the imperfections with edible glitter :) Now it has to dry for 2 days. Then I can hide the trouble spots...er, I mean, add a little color to it. Are you wondering why in the world I'm making a royal icing tiara? Baby Girl's birthday is in October. When I was reading about these it said that it takes a lot of practice to get them off without breaking them and that the first FEW will most likely break... so, this is a practice tiara. Hopefully, by then I will be able to make a really nice one to set on her birthday cake.
