Get in. Get out. Get away.

The Academy Awards are tonight and I'm going to a party. I'm not super into The Oscars, but I do enjoy a party. I figured I'd make a Drive-inspired cake. Yes, I know it was only nominated for one award, but it's my pick for best movie of 2011!

I decided to go with the jacket Ryan Gosling wears in the movie. Here's a picture of it if you're nuts and haven't seen the movie yet.

Here's my cake. I added a diamond texture to the fondant base and some pearl dust all over to match the jacket.

The Eighth Wonder of the World

Four years ago I made Mike a King Kong cake for his birthday. Well, I attempted to make one. This was before I took any classes, so the cake was a hot mess. It started melting in the car. It just didn't look good.

Here's a picture of the cake. I post it with great hesitation!

It's terrible, I know. That cake has haunted me ever since. This year I decided it was time for a King Kong do-over. I'm happy to say that this one turned out waaaaay better.
