Fire Engine Cake, What little-boy doesn’t like fire fighters? So why not make a fire engine cake. Simply take three 8×4 cakes and cut off the dome of the cakes in order to have a flat surface on both sides. Then take two of the cakes and place them one on top of the other and glue them together with frosting. Take the third cake and cut it in half stack them on top of each other and stand them on end. Then place it on the end in front of the other cake. This will make the cab of your fire engine. Then decorate with red frosting and pipe on the accents.
Finding that special cake for your special day or your wedding sounds fun, right? Tasting all those yummy confectionery treats and yes, it can be done, but don’t over due it all in one day or you will have destroyed your taste-buds and gotten sick of cake even before your big day. Plus, if you do too many taste testings all in one day, all the cakes taste will run into each other and you won’t be able to tell which cake was your favorite. That is not unless you have taken extensive notes. Taste testing cakes should be done much like the tasting of good wine. You must rinse your palette between each flavor or you are not giving the new flavor its full due.
Are they expensive? Yeah. They’re a lot of dough! Sorry. Couldn’t help it. On average, Americans spend $575 on their wedding cakes and average around $3 per slice. Why do some wedding cakes taste really bad? Are they frozen or baked fresh? Ever been to a really great wedding, eaten a delicious meal, and had it topped off with a something that tasted like styrofoam wrapped in stale butter? Chances are good that the cake you ate was baked the night (or two) before and frozen until ready for serving. Not all frozen cakes are bad. They are baked to be frozen, and most good bakers know how to bake in a way to preserve the moistness and flavor you expect (and pay a fortune for).
Prepare your cookie sheets – Line each one of your cookie sheets with parchment paper cut long enough so that it extends over the side of the pan so that you can fit the parchment down into the corners. If you are not sure how much parchment paper to use, roll it out onto the cookie sheet and then set another cookie sheet on top of it and push down. Cut the excess parchment paper off. Repeat until all of your cookie sheets are covered. Set them aside.
