Cinderella visits the Bean castle, virtual cake up for grabs...

Okay, so I've blogged about the beans' artistic abilities (which is far beyond mine, by the way). I no gift for drawing (okay giving credit where it's due, my stick figures aren't bad). But, I do have one little talent. It's one that, in the US I didn't know I had... I can make a really cool looking cake. In honor of ButterBean's birthday, I made two awesome cakes (one for home and one for school). And, I'm going to give you guys a taste (a virtual one anyway) of my skills.

ButterBean cake for home: Cinderella comes to visit

ButterBean's cake for school: Cinderella n the flesh (okay in the plastic) all gussied up for the ball

And lest you should think the other beans have been left out, I'll share theirs with you as well...

Enter JujuBean's castle for a rip-romping good time!



Race to the Finish with Junior Bean but don't get left behind!


It's funny how not having access to a bakery to make such cakes for me has brought out my creative instincts... I'm fiding it's fun to not only decorate the cakes, but to come up with the conceptual idea. And, thank goodness there are folks on the internet who provide pictures of their cakes for me to gain inspiration. I hope this made your mouth water (oh, and they taste even better than they look).
Happy virtual taste tests!

Thanks ladies. I can't believe no guys came on for the virtual cake... guess they only like real cake.

Umm Farouq, hmm, longer than it should have :). The base frosting is what takes so darn long. The rest takes much less time. I think the icing part took about 2 hours per cake.
