'Hawkeye Celebration'. This is a fun Iowa themed graduation cake. I made the Tiger Hawk out of fondant and the cake it self is a white chocolate frosting. I didn't have a cutter so I drew the image on waxed paper, placed it on top of the fondant and cut it out with a fine craft knife.
Hi, My name is Emma Casper, originally a valleys girl from Wales now an Iowa Hawkeye lass too. I have wondered through life and staggered on the path of the arts. My main passion is Theater and acting. I dabbled in a few acting parts here and there but found it hard to make it BIG TIME, I think that's why i latched on to creating cakes. I feel as if I can express a story and meaning in each one. Thanks to my wonderful hubby Lucas who is very supportive and my FAB mother in law who is also my protege. I am still learning the correct techniques and even though there may be blunders I strive harder and learn from them.
Note to self !!!!!!!!
Humidity is gum pastes enemy- It took me a lot longer to dry my figurines and flowers for a June event in Iowa with 80 degree weather.
Solution: I plan to pre-make all my figurines and flowers a few months in advance and store them. Therefore stressing out about small blunders will not be an issue!.......I hope :)
