I agreed to donate a cake to a silent auction fundraiser for the Delaware Children’s Museum that is coming to the Riverfront in Wilmington (Click on the link for more info on the museum). For the event, I needed to make a few mini-cakes (6 inch rounds) to demonstrate what I could offer. I looked around online for some ideas and found a couple jumping off points. In the end, I am quite pleased with the end products.
The first is a Rubber Ducky in a Washtub Cake:
This was such a fun cake – I hope to make a bigger one someday! Here is the table view:
The second cake incorporates the Delaware Children’s Museum logo. I used fondant and 3 perfectly colored and strategically placed toothpicks. I hope it holds up for the event!
I will have another cake to post when I am commissioned for the winner of the auction item.
I received an email from an attendee of the auction: “Everyone was very impressed, and the museum director took the DCM cake hoping to preserve it!” I’m not sure how to preserve a cake (besides freezing it!) but I was happy they liked it! I hope it brought them lots of money too
