This weekend I made a cake for my baby niece's Christening.
I made this cake using three 9 x 13 cakes.
The main part of the body is 2 cakes.
The sleeves and the top bodice are 1 cake.
Like my terrible picture?
The battery for my "good" camera was dead.
So I took this with my blackberry.
Anyone else own a blackberry?
They take terrible pictures.
So I sent my husband out for a new battery
and took this picture of the finished cake.
This is the first cake I've made using fondant.
I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to use.
Any cake makers out there afraid of the stuff?
As someone who takes pride in the taste of my cakes, I have always had an issue with fondant, because in my experience the taste isn't all that great.
So I made sure to include a thick layer of buttercream.
I filled the cake with my cinnamon cream cheese filling.
It was so delicious that I thought I would share the recipe.
Cinnamon Cream Cheese Filling
Make sure all your ingrediants are room temperature.
2 blocks of cream cheese
2 sticks of butter
That's right, this is good and healthy.
Cream the two together until fluffy.
Add 2 teaspoons of vanilla.
Beat some more.
Add 4.5 full cups of powdered sugar, one cup at a time.
Add 1 teaspoon of cinnamon to your last cup of powdered sugar and add to the mixture.
Mix good and resist the urge to eat it with a spoon.
This makes a lot.
You could easily cut this recipe in half.
