Pink roses from Judi's beautiful garden
My mom went and picked some strawberries at Rutiz Farms and
I drizzled them with a little white chocolate and sprinkled a
few with some coconut. Jerry at Rutiz Farms has the best
strawberries in the world!
And here is where the adventure begins...
I like my cakes to taste good so I refuse to use fondant or
Crisco frosting . I frost my cake with cream cheese frosting
and then coat it liberally with coconut. Normally, not a
problem because I keep them refrigerated. Today, however
was a different story. Today I learned that warm days and
cakes with cream cheese frosting aren't the best match.
As the shoot was getting set-up the sides of the cake
started falling- coconut and all. We patched it up the
best we could but it was definitely not as pretty as
when it arrived. Lesson learned!
I had made edible white chocolate cameos which we didn't end
up using but I like how sweet and girly they look so I
am sure I will make them again for a future project.
