Sack ‘o’ Potatoes (:

This weekend, I had the joy of making one of the most fun cakes yet!

This was for a surprise 80th birthday party for a potato farmer. Two of his daughters were throwing him a big surprise party this weekend and they suggested to me that they were interested in a cake to look like a sack of potatoes, personalized with their father’s label. Of course, I was delighted to take on such an order! How fun does that sound?

So here is a view from the top…

The “potatoes” were made out of homemade rice krispie treats, white chocolate, and fondant – and at the very end I dusted everything with a little cocoa powder “dirt”.

I was so happy with how it all turned out and can’t wait to hear the feedback from the party.

What a fun cake! (:
