Ok, so here's the story. After watching Last Cake Standing challenge on FN, I was dying to try Mary's (from Cakegirls) glow in the dark technique. What better place than my own birthday cake, right? Wrong!
I am a big fan of DC Superheros - especially Batman and the Justice League, so I came up with this design. Only the top tier was real cake (Vanilla Bean with mixed berry coulis filling). I was really happy with the outcome. Followed the ingredients from the show, applied it to anything that I wanted to glow, and waited for dark. For this to work, I needed a blacklight. The one I bought was not strong enough I guess, because this cake did not glow!
I am not giving up though! I will be on the hunt for a better black light and I will try this again. When it works, I have a funnny feeling a lot of people will want their cake to glow too!
Not only am I happy with it, but so was the person who asked for this cake. Here is what she had to say:
"Everyone loved it!!! It was super delicious and I enjoyed eating the leftover cake thoroughly. You have such talent and I thank you for making Faolan's day extra special. He started to pick at the side of the cake before we cut it, he was freaking out with excitement that he had a SpongeBob cake. Thank you for making a little boy very happy "
I hope you all enjoy my blog, and I look forward to posting often since there are a lot of things I want to try, and a lot of cakes on the way!!
