Arlyn's Rolling Pin Custom Cakes and 8 little purses...

Arlyn Howard who has a custom cake business, Arlyn's Rolling Pin, visited with us here at Promise House today.  Arlyn was so sweet to come to share how to make a small cake for each girl.  She actually brought two cakes per girl which turned out to look like small purses.  She had made a bigger cake that was a replica of the small cakes that the girls made...
The girls started with a round piece of cardboard which Arlyn showed them how to wrap the circle so that the cake would have something pretty to sit upon...

Next the girls started the wrapping of the fondant icing...
They were all busy placing the fondant icing over the cake and smoothing thewrinkles out...
Next the girls took a butter knife and cut away the edges at the bottom of the cake...

Now we are getting ready to start the decorating as soon as we ....
put the handles on our purses! hehe....

See...we are close to being finished....



Finishing up the final touches....

Now look at what we created...so cute!
(We had one more but she had already wrote her name in icing in front of the cake so I couldn't post it on here)

Great job Girls!!!  I am so very proud of you!
A great big thank you to Arlyn for all the time that you gave to us to prepare for this and to come here to the house to teach us how to decorate cakes.  The girls loved it!
