Ace recently celebrated his birthday. The day before the party, I saw a picture of this cake
Bobbette & Belle cake. I saw it on Pinterest, which means I saw it all tiny and so was initially under the impression that the ruffles of frosting were M&Ms. Which made me think "that's awesome. I want to do a rainbow one for Ace!"
I called Ace's fiance to see if someone was already making a cake and discovered that the job was available. The schedule was a bit tight for baking since I had many plans, but I figured I could buy the cake and just refrost it.
There was a massive amount of frosting on the cake and I was glad to scrape it off as I'm sure it was full of the cheapest shortening man can buy. I made up some fresh cream cheese frosting by whipping 1 package of cream cheese with 1/2 stick of butter. I then stirred in 1 cup of powdered sugar.
The cake then got a thin layer of frosting and the fun of pushing in concentric circles of candy began. I used a cup to mark a circle at the center of the cake so that it would start out even. Once the red and orange were in, it was easy to keep is symmetric and lovely.
It was a hit!
