My lil’ sister wanted to make a cake for her friend, Jenessa’s birthday. No big deal, we were already making cakes, we had leftover batter and frosting. I wanted to teach her how to use color flow technique, anyway.
My lil’ sister is a HUGE Harry Potter fan. And when I say “Harry Potter fan” I really mean Slytherin fan. The Malfoys, Snape, the dark arts, thats her thing. Don’t ask, I don’t understand.
Not that I’m not a huge fan of the books, because I am.
But Jenessa and Liz are much huger fans than I am. Huger in a way that doesn’t have to do with weight because I weigh as much as the two of them put together, but thats besides the point.
The point is this: We made a Slytherin cake!
Here is the pretty color flow crest that we made together:
It was really something. I painted the word with a tiny paintbrush dipped in black food coloring. It was fantastic.
Too bad we made it the day before her birthday.
Color flow needs several days to dry.
I knew this.
I tried anyway.
I’d show you the movie Steve made of me trying to transfer it to the cake and breaking it into a million pieces, but I would cry just looking at it and you would be bored to tears and we would all have wet faces.
We did, however, make it look half-way decent in the end, and the girls had a lovely time eating the lovely cake.
Good side view anyway!
