Baking Is Finished

Current mental soundtrack: "Angels on the Head of a Pin" from Angels Are Everywhere, by Daniel Pinkham

As promised, photos of the cake balls:

And for the cake contest, B decorated this castle:

My entry for the cake contest:

octopus cake

It's the first time I've tried using fondant to cover a cake. The cake and starfish came out pretty well, but I think my octopus sculpture leaves something to be desired. He looks rather deflated.

The castle looks awesome, and I love your purple octopus! I am so impressed, I've never been bold enough to try fondant covering, and your initial effort turned out beautifully!

Oh, and I nearly forgot- the cake balls look okay, but I'll really have to taste them before I can give the thumbs up. My address is the same as it is on the PWC roster... ;D Just kidding- they look wonderful!

Hmmm, maybe I'll find time to make some cake balls during Christmas vacation. Now if y'all can just agree on rehearsal dates for those two weeks, I'll bring something to eat :-)

Thanks for the compliments on the octopus! I didn't make it to the festival (choir retreat), but DH says it was one of the first cakes claimed by a cake-walk winner.
