Today I attended a geocaching event, the Pocono's 10th Annual Easter Egg Hunt and Picnic.
Of course, I just had to make a cake!
Once I saw Amanda Rettke's post about the Easter Egg Surprise Inside Cake she made, I knew that's what I had to make! I mean, it's an Easter egg hunt, so I need an Easter egg cake, right?
I'm not completely thrilled with how the outside looks, but it works.
I got these pearls from Hobby Lobby, I like them, but they're really hard and difficult to eat.
I also tried Satin Ice fondant for the first time, that I got from Hobby Lobby too. It wrinkled a bit, but I think it was rolled too thin.
I couldn't cut it before the event obviously, so I just had to wait!
Unfortunately, the egg shape inside got crooked. But I guess it gives it character!
(Plus, I don't think anyone realized it wasn't supposed to be crooked)
At the end of the event:
There wasn't much left!
Here are some in-progress photos:
The counter started off clean...
Surprisingly it stayed mostly clean for this cake!
Here is the egg-stripe cake baked!
