Let's Play Cake! - October 2011

As you can see this month's theme is Try Something New!

This theme is pretty self explanatory, basically you get free reign to cross something off that “I want to try this” list that we all have laying around.  It can be a new recipe, a new icing or a new flavor combination.  Maybe you want to try a new border or technique you read about.  Do you have a new ‘tool’ you haven’t gotten to play with yet?  Now is your chance!

My only caution for you is that you should never try too many new things on one cake.  So if you plan to try a new icing or filling, stick with the cake recipe you feel comfortable with.  If you plan to try a decorating technique, start with the icing you use all the time and know how it should behave.

Post pictures on facebook in the album titled, “LPC” – Oct. 2011.  Or Email any pictures to me at TracyCakesTX at gmail dot com.  Please include a description of what you did.

All pictures received by the last day of October will be shared in a blog post the first week of November.

I ask that anything you submit to me or to the photo album be a new creation.  While we all love a chance to show off past work the idea behind this is to push us to sit down and do something new or just for ourselves.
