Last night I baked one recipe of brownies in two 8″ pans…which was why I overcooked them a bit. They were so thin…but I wanted to put frosting between them and knew I couldn’t cut fudgy brownies in half! I also made up a batch of green modeling chocolate for the outside from Wilton’s green candy melts. Once Mindy arrived I put her to work!! – she carved the cake from a template I made, then she embossed the wooden fondant board and painted the wood grain! She’s totally a pro now…I need to convert her from an amazing photographer to a cake maker! hahaha!! In order to cover the meeple, I did it in two sections…We cut green strips for the sides, then a meeple piece for the top. I then trimmed the edges to make it as square as possible…like meeples are. Thanks Mindy for all your work on the cake (and for making lunch for the kids, and for cleaning up after them!)…it turned out awesome and it was super fun working with you!!
And, Happy Birthday Ian!! May the Lord continue to bless you and your family this year!!
