A fondant covered cake and a big dream!
Ladies and gentlemen,put your hands together for Ramya and the Best cake of the show!!The stage is lit and the music plays as I walk the ramp in my off-shoulder,figure-hugging,knee-slit designer gown.The crowd is crazy,throwing roses and other wonderful things to show their admiration....Ouch!did somebody throw a slipper??Never mind...I take a bow and blow a kiss,then take a bow and blow a kiss,take another bow and then...TTRRIINNGG!!!
I jumped up on the bed.....and stared at the bedroom wall...No Oklahoma cake show,no crazy crowd,no music,no lights,no stage,no roses....ah yes,there were a couple of slippers lying around and three bodies curled up in bed next to me....it was just another cold,dark morning and boring daily chores to look forward to!
Well,look what one little wonderful cake can do to a poor woman?Ever since I finished my Wilton course three final cake,which was spectacular,mind blowing and delightfully gorgeous(sorry for being such a braggart!),this is what I ever do ...dream of becoming a celebrity cake decorator when I am not even sure if I will be able to do a second cake as good as this one!
It was no doubt difficult to put together with a troublesome toddler and a school-goer to take care of.However the end result was rewarding.I was so much in love with it,that the thought of having to cut it broke my heart.So I decided not to cut it and it stood on the dining table for two weeks until I finally dumped it.Experienced cake decorators may point out a thousand flaws,but to me,it is a masterpiece!Makes me proud of myself!
And did I master the art of cake decoration??My next cake will perhaps give an answer!
