Teacher Appreciation Cake

A quick, relatively simple project for teacher appreciation.

TeacherCakeI added the white fondant coating mostly because I had some extra sitting around and because I wanted to use the new butter cream frosting recipe I came upon recently, which can’t really be done in a pure white color anyway.

I also tried to jazz things up with sprinkles in the sponge cake batter and also coconut pudding instead of frosting for the filling (I’d wanted pistachio pudding for a nice pop of color, but I was only finding ones with the little nut pieces in it, which I thought the kids might dislike as a texture).

 

 

 

I did learn a couple of things along the way:

  • If I’m saving extra fondant for future use, next time I will use my vacuum sealer- or else be prepared to cut off the exterior which may have hardened too much.
  • Don’t underestimate any project. I kind of phoned this one in. If I had to do it over again, I would have practiced piping straight lines first.

Still, folks seemed to think it tasted good…
