I'm no decorator and have never claimed to be, but for a novice it wasn't too bad with a 7 year old's input and shaky unsure hands. What a mess he made...icing everywhere and he even dropped the "sand" on the kitchen floor, creating quite the hazard--that stuff is slick!
We had to carve the cake quite a bit and the cake (chocolate) was delicious. The auction is tonight, so it will be interesting to see if anyone wants to bid on it. It will be more interesting to see if the cake makes it to the auction. It's so top heavy I can envision it falling in the car during its transport. Don't worry; I will take pics of that, too, if it happens. ;)
|We used melted red, yellow and white Life Savers for the spew effect|
|We added some candy melts to the bottom for effect|
|The sand you see is Cakemate gold Glitter Gems.|
