Argyle Cake

Who doesn't love argyle?!  One of my friends in university used to have enough argyle sweaters/tees/socks that I figured he could sport argyle every day of the week - and he could!  I may or may not have called him Argyle Kyle from time to time... ;)


Anyway, this post has nothing to do with my friend Kyle.  Although he is pretty cool.  See - argyle tee shirt, even when riding a llama. (Don't ask!)

This is really a post about cake!

I made Amy a cake because I was throwing her a bit of a pinterest party!  Everything we ate came from her pinterest board!!

I also needed to make more cakes to practice for the (at that time) upcoming wedding!

This cake is one of the few I've made from scratch.  I even went so far as to buy cake flour (that I may never use again. lol)



I thought the cake was just okay.  I probably wouldn't make it again.  But for some odd reason, this cake is like soups & chili in the sense that after it sat for a couple of days, it got better.  Weird.

I can't remember if I actually had a reason to choose blue fondant or not.  Covering it in fondant went pretty well, there are only a couple little puckers if you look closely!

Using some leftover chocolate icing I piped on an argyle pattern just for funsies.  If I had really wanted to take a little more time, I would have smoothed out the filled in parts with a hot butterknife.

Now if you're thinking the top looks pretty bare, well....I did write something on it, but it's an inside joke and not really family/blog appropriate, so we'll just leave it at that!

Only a few more cake posts until the big reveal!!!
