I know it’s been a while since I posted something it has just been a couple of really busy weeks. I got a new job and am trying to make my final decision on college (the decision needs to be made by next week yikes!!), so I haven’t had much time to bake. But last weekend was my dad’s birthday so of course I made time to attempt to make a pretty cake. I went to the store all ready to buy some fondant to decorate it with, when I found the greatest thing. Sugar Sheets!!! They are like edible paper that you can punch out designs with and then stick it on the cake. The best part – no gross fondant is needed, you just stick it on the frosting. I really don’t like the consistency of fondant on a cake so these were the perfect solution.
For the cake my dad decided he wanted a chocolate cake with a caramel frosting. I used a chocolate cake recipe from Better Home and Gardens and I used the same caramel frosting I used with my caramel banana cake. It turned out delicious!
