I love it when cake takes on a personality. But why did this cake have to be so smug?
Yes, it may look all cute and cuddly to you right now, but inside is dwelling something . . . well, something rainbow.
Velvet rainbow, actually.
This little cake was for a friend of ours that's really into all things knit or all things that can be knit - this includes llama and alpaca fur (which apparently makes for some really cute mittens and sweaters). She runs a cute little store on Etsy - Drama Llama Knitting Company - and in celebration of this, we thought we'd turn her passion into cake.
The cake is a rainbow velvet with cream cheese icing. On top of that we've got some of our homemade marshmallow fondant with some chocolate swiss buttercream on top as fur. The scarf (which matches the insides . . . ew that sounds gross) is marzipan.
When the cake was cut, much squealing pursued. Everyone loves cakes with a surprise inside. Half this sucker was consumed in 5 minutes flat - which left everyone on the ground, moaning over their buttercream-stuffed bellies.
But it was very very worth it.
Why does he still look so damn smug?
