2012 The End of It All

After such a busy summer it was really nice to take a break from Caking. Sort of. I missed having the use of my arm and was shocked and surprised on how long it persisted in hurting. I didn’t back again until December. Two cakes requested for the same day.
Sure I could do it… before the broken elbow thing. After the broken elbow? That had yet to be seen.
This is the first cake I made post elbow.
A birthday cake for one of my friends. Her birthday happened to fall on December 21 2012. This day, according to the Mayan Calendar, was supposed to be the end of the world. So we went with that theme.
First I had to make the earth. I used the Wilton “Sports Ball Pan Set” I hadn’t used the pan set before, so I was pleased with the cake I got out of it. Nice and round.
Next I created the earth. So pretty.
I wasn’t going for perfectionism. I just wanted it to resemble the idea of a planet.

The cake was fun to make. Especially the destroying the earth part.
