Reese's Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Ganache
(First time I ever made Ganache - came out really well!)
Pail with "Sandy Pudding"
This is my failed cake. It had "Happy birthday Katie" written on the other side in icing between Blue's Clues ears. But all the fondant melted int he 95+ degree heat, and the ears sunk and pushed the fondant around, eventually collapsing part of it. I worked about 6 hours on it, so after some tears, I just turned it around.
The back up cake
Cake Balls - these were a big hit and were gone really fast!
The best Mac and Cheese Bill and I ever made (he had to help because I was having a melt down!), Sloppy Joes in my crock pot, and hot dogs off to the left.
