Andy's 29th birthday cake I forgot to post!

I don't remember ever posting our oldest sons 29th birthday cake. :) Andy use to LOVE to be in the boat or on shore fishing when he was a kid so I made him this. Doesn't look real but it was tasty. :)

  11. hello hello!!!

    i added you as a friend via google connect =)
    I like how your blog is not only about nails but other related hobbies and what not. i'm a crafty person but I can never finish anything. I start something but then halfway done I try something new. i have so many half scarfs under my bed. hopefully one day I can post a picture of a complete scarf.

    I was going to ask you ..what is this fish cake made of? well to be exact..is that fondant? if not.....how did you get that icing so smooth?

  12. Hi Lilian,
    Thanks for following me and thanks that you like how my blog is. :)
    I have so many hobbies. I do that same as you sort of but I finish a few projects, start another hobby and then go back and forth.
    The cake has icing on it.
    I make a butter cream recipe that crust over.
    I allow my frosting to crust over slightly before I smooth it with a paper towel.
    Make sure the paper towel is plain with no designs. Viva works great.
    Crusting may take from 1-15 minutes depending upon your icing and the humidity in the air.
    As soon as the icing doesn’t stick to the paper towel, you can proceed.
    Hold the Viva towel along the side and smooth up and down gently with your fingers or fondant smoother.
    I remove my rings from my right hand when I do this so I don’t get indents.
    Do not allow paper towel to pleat or fold. Move paper towel as needed to smooth.
    Hope that helps,
    Susie
