A very late night yesterday!
The good news is that the panda is drying better than expected ( for fondant) and I think I’ll be able to put it on the cake and for it to stay the way it should!
The bad news is …it is extremely hot! It’s almost 100 F and no matter the AC, since I use outside refrigerator on the porch ( my “cake” refrigerator”) it’s almost impossible to work! I am dreading the “painting part”, since I have to bring the cake inside. I’ll work as quick as I can, but still it’s nerve wrecking! On top of that I have no idea if the place we are going for the B-day party actually has AC!
Did I mention that whenever all this is over I’ll be very happy?! LoL
Finally, Po has pants! 😉
And the pants are the right color!
The scrolls are ready too!
These are the real Chinese words for Wisdom, Prosperity, Luck, Double happiness, Respect, Success and Knowledge. I though that it would be a great idea to have them next to each candle, so when he blows them it would be like making a wish! the other thing is that I probably would put the candles on the bottom tier, next to the scrolls, not on the top. That way Po would look like ” surrounded” with fire …very mystical! 😉 Kalin absolutely loved my idea, which makes me very happy! 🙂
Doesn’t these look yummy? 🙂
It’s mascarpone filling again ( I can’t help it, I love it! ) and bananas this time with Kalin’s favorite Devil’s food cake. I dipped each banana in lemon juice, let’s hope they’ll not brown!
The top tier!
And covered in fondant
Getting there, I know!
I have to go now, so I can start with the drawing on the bottom tier, but let me first put the AC on 65F and freeze everybody at home! 😉
See you later with more pictures!
P.S: If you like this cake, maybe you would want to see how it came to life as an idea? Take a look at this:
