I decided to make a yellow butter cake and at the last minute threw in some semi sweet chocolate chips - they all sunk to the bottom of the cakes, but once I put the layers together they were on the top and the bottom of the cake! Yummy!!
Since I was adding chocolate to the mix, I decided to make a chocolate mousse with some cream cheese, whipped cream, a little milk and a little chocolate pudding mix!
Covered with white buttercream! Not perfect, but getting better at smoothing it out! The buttercream was a little too thin, so when I used the Viva paper towel to smooth it out, it was sticking to the icing! Oops! Note to self - keep icing a little thicker next time!
Now for the PIECE DE RESISTANCE - the marshmellow fondant Playstation paddle! TA-DA!
I used some of the extra fondant to make the power cord - and had it coming out of the paddle down around the cake for the bottom trim of the cake and then to the front with the plug in part of the cord!
Everyone loved it! I even had some family members taking bites out of the paddle and the power cord!
The balloons on the sides looked good - until the piping gel decided it wanted to live by the law of gravity! They started sliding off of the cake so I had to take my trusty toothpick and remove the excess of piping gel so that there was only a small amount and would not decide to drip down!
Turned out pretty good! Some good lessons learned! Now HURRY and put it in the fridge to set up those dang red balloons! :) Hope Kasey likes it!
