.. how to get to Sesame Street?
I love bright and colourful cakes, so when I was asked to do a Sesame St themed cake for a 2nd birthday I already had in mind bright yellows, reds, blue and green! The father was delighted when he came to collect it (as I hoped he would be) and I'm trying to ignore the fact that Big Bird's head is the wrong shape, Oscar is bigger than Cookie Monster and that I put so much edible glue under CM's butt that from the top down, it looks like he's peed himself!
Let's look at it as the whole being more than the sum of its parts =P
Oh, and my KitchenAid mixer seems to have held up well - it feels so much lighter than the Breville one I had, and I was afraid at times that I would break it whipping up butter and shortening for the buttercream frosting for this cake, but the beaters still spin yet! I love that it's so quiet. Let's hope it stands the test of time. Much more baking to come!
