Orange cake never looked so good…

Our famous pair of Canadian WikiNeighbors are at it again…

This week, Supervisor Jadeacres received an Orange Guy cake baked by Thatwouldbme for his birthday. The flags on the cake have the usernames of 30 of his friends on Answers.com.

So now I have a question: How does orange frosting taste?

And on a separate note, I sense a contest idea brewing…

  1. Thatwouldbme on me how she made the cake:”I used three graduated pans and some mini-muffins for the lemon cake. Use lemon curd as filler (between the layers) and made extra strong lime butter frosting, with green (and a little bit of orange) food colouring. The cake was stacked off center to give it the “stepped” shape and allow for room for the little Wiki guys. The bottom layer was combed to look like grass blowing in the wind, the middle layer was smooth and the top layer was again combed, this time straight up. The mini-cupcakes were iced in the orange to stand out and the base was piped in the orange to give it a “finished” look. The flags were just coloured paper glued to toothpicks. I put the names of as! many of the Wiki folk as I could think of, all the members of our Circle and then everyone at Jade Acres and Snugglefoot Hollow on them and then added the large top flag that read “Happy Birthday Jamie We all love you.” The Wiki guys were the only tough part… Marzipan, dyed orange with food colouring paste and kneaded until the colour was consistent throughout was modeled into shape. Think of the play-dough at the Atlanta conference. The problem was the same. Marzipan is too soft to support itself, my first attempt they sagged so bad I had to redo them. so the second incarnation were air dried in parts, then assembled (using toothpicks as armature and support) just before James showed up. They lasted through the photos and the cake cutting, but as marzipan is so tasty several of them were quickly eaten. “
