Marek’s Birthday Cake

I’ve been rushing to finish my entries for participating of my first Cake Show, that’s why I haven’t posted but I couldn’t leave my husband’s cake behind :) It was a carrot cake with ganache filling. He’s been dreaming with a car since we “lost” ours, so I gave him the car I could afford haha :P His birthday is tomorrow, but we celebrated it last Saturday. But I have to say that I had a really hard time with the letters spray… Now I know why nobody writes or add letters on them. They get too heavy. Maybe just the letters would have been ok. Also, it was the first time I was using the patchwork cutters (not counting a class I took in 2010 that had a bit of patchwork subjects). It was fun, but I next time I’ll try to work with it more ahead of time, so the pieces dry harder. The spray and the car didn’t turn out as I expected but my husband was happy with it and that’s what matters. :)

Eu tenho corrido pra terminar as pecas para o meu primeiro Cake Show, e por isso nao tenho postado, mas eu nao podia deixar o bolo do maridao para tras :) Era um bolo de cenoura recheado com ganache. Ele tem sonhado com um carro desde que “perdemos” o nosso, entao eu dei a ele o carro que eu pude pagar haha :P. O aniversario dele e amanha, mas celebramos no sabado passado. Mas eu tenho que dizer que o “buque” de letras me deu um pouco de trabalho… Agora eu sei porque ninguem escreve ou adiciona letras neles. Eles ficam muito pesados. Talvez so letras teriam funcionado. E foi minha primeira vez usando patchwork cutters (sem contar uma aula que participei em 2010 que abordava um pouco desse assunto). Eu gostei, mas da proxima vez vou tentar trabalhar com eles com mais antecedencia para as pecas secarem melhor. O buque e o carro nao ficaram como eu esperava, mas o meu marido gostou do bolo e isso e o que importa :)
