40th Birthday Cake

 

It was my wonderful sister-in-law's 40th birthday this past Sunday and I was more than eager to make a special cake for her. She requested yellow cake with chocolate frosting. I bought the mix since I am not used to yellow cake from scratch, but I completely decided against canned frosting. It's just not the same! I also decided to make some marshmallow fondant for the decorations. It was a sticky mess for a while, but a lot of fun to work with. As you can see, I made a "V" for the topper; her name is Vikki. I also sprinkled a few edible silver dragees to add some prettiness.

Zoo-kee-nee

 

Desperate for something sweet the other night, I figured the lonely zucchini in my refrigerator wouldn't mind if I used it for something sweet rather than salty. I don't seem to be very good with sauteeing this vegetable so I went for the sugar- adding in some chocolate chips for good measure. YUM!
