So, I saw this post on food_porn
for this cake
, and I am so freaking obsessed about it, I can't stop thinking about it, and omg I must make it RIGHT NOW.
The amazing baker who did this posted a tutorial today for the rose-frosting
, so I think I'm going to try to make it tomorrow. Happily, I have somewhere to take it--going to Judy's for dinner. I wasn't planning on bringing anything, or maybe just bringing the brownies I made. But now--I have
to do this. And I'm (pessimistically as always) totally convinced my first attempt is going to suck, but I don't care
. I really really want to try this out. I'm sad she hasn't been able to do the tutorial on the vertical cake because OMG I WANT TO DO THAT HOW HOW HOW? *shriek*
Anyhow, she has a buttercream recipe
she recommends that I'm going to use to try to help me out. I don't normally like buttercreams because they always seem too greasy to me (unlike cream cheese frosting, which is my favorite, but is a total pain in the ass to work with). I did try a swiss buttercream once, and I did like that better. But I can only imagine that for this decoration, a really solid stiff frosting is needed. So.
AHHHHHHHH I WANT TO GO DO THIS RIGHT NOW RIGHT NOW!!!! *FIXATED*
OMG between this and watching The Social Network
last night (a topic on which I have much to say) my own incredible lack of a giant brain or awe-inspiring creativity is so glaringly obvious. Vertical cake! WHO THINKS OF THAT
OMG! And I mean, I don't care, it can't be helped, but how are some people so freaking amazing? And is there a well from which I can drink to be more like them?? AHHHHHH!!!!
