The School Raffle Tomorrow.
I think I mentioned in my post the other day that J saw this Beach Cake at my Aunt’s last summer. I asked my Aunt so nicely if I could have the magazine and she graciously let me take it home. When the notes started coming home about the Cake Raffle at school J didn’t even hesitate to
ask demand that I make Aunty J’s cake for the raffle.
I started it two days ago and it is now finished. Only one major mishap in that I think the Jello could have been a bit thicker before I poured it into the scooped out area as it started leaking through the wall of the cake. I began to panic, took a photo…
.. then grabbed the plastic wrap. I was able to stabilize it long enough for it to set. However, I did have to get some more icing re-tint it and carefully reapply it over the icing without destroying the sand.
This cake was surprisingly easy to make and if it weren’t for the fact that everything had to be peanut-free I would have had a few more decorations on it.
It came from the June 19th, 2007 issue of Woman’s Day. I would be happy to share all the details with anyone who may want to make it in the future.
