Yet Another Missionary Cake

It's been a busy day.
Cam's gone again. This time he's off to a conference in Prague.
Today I've been running about taking girls to dance lessons, dropping off and picking up at birthday parties and a playdate for those who are home. I was fearful as to whether my kids would cooperate in my quiet time, to allow me to decorate a cake for a good friend. I love to decorate cakes, but I don't like to do it when kids harass me while doing so. Thankfully, no one demanded stuff of me while I worked on it. Yay!

I've seen pictures of cakes like this online. There's several versions of it from many people, so I can't give credit to any one person. I was originally going to do this cake idea for my nephew back in February. But, when I had the idea for something completely unique and original, this cake idea got put away. I still wanted to try it though. So, when my friend said that she was super busy with all that she needed to do for her son's mission farewell, I was more than happy to make her a cake. She told me she wanted something very simple. I told her to "never mind what I'm going to do.... I'll make something nice for you." After all, I don't really like to bake, in fact, I don't even like to cover a cake simply with buttercream usually. I like to make cakes that look nice. It's a way of expressing some of the creativity I have and let out my inner artist in me. Lastly, I have to say that this cake was surprisingly a bigger challenge than I thought. I couldn't quite figure out how to make it all 3D and look decent. Let's just say that I started to do it one way, started to make a mess of it and started over again. It was a good experience.

Okay, enough of my babble. Here's some pictures.....

I wish Tyler all the best as he prepares to leave on his mission soon. He's going to be a fabulous missionary!!
