Tea Party Cakes ...
I’ve had one experience with humidity and became immediately glad that I don’t normally have to deal with it where I live. Were I live it’s rarely super hot and there is no humidity. I mean non, as in if you don’t moisturize you will actually dry out and start looking like one of those shruken mummified voodoo heads. I travelled back to my hometown for a friends wedding and set about decorating their wedding cake at my Mom’s. Now normally my Mom’s house is like a deep freeze because of the airconditioner, but as it happens it was broken that weekend, so not only did I have the humidity to deal with but the heat as well. So here I am with buttercream iced cakes and I’m trying to cover them to look like a stack of books. The buttercream was melting so I had to very quickly cover them and then pop them in the fridge. Every time I brought them back out they would sweat like crazy. I had two huge fans set up to dry them while I worked. It took me forever to decorate those cakes because I would have to stop and put them in the fridge, let them firm up again, bring them out and then work as fast as I could before the cake started to melt and puddles developed on the fondant. All I can say is never again will I decorate a cake at my Mom’s, lol!
