Yabu: kirakira

Yay~ Cake~

Today Kit and I made our cake for the cake decorating contest! You can see a picture here. I think it came out really nice! Hilde helped out with the baking, I did the icing and the cooking of the candy glass, and Kit did the design and the decorating. Ami was the third member of our team, but she was sick. T^T I hope you feel better, Ami~ And we wouldn't have decided to make the candy in the first place if it weren't for Ami :D

Figuring out how to make the candy was quite an adventure, though! I don't have a candy thermometer, so I basically had to guess when it was boiled enough. So we had everything from gloop that never hardened to candy too stiff to pour into the molds. It was pretty fun XD It was not quite so fun getting it out of the molds, though...
