Divorce Cakes

Happy CoupleYesterday was an adventure!  Yesterday my roommate (who happens to be a chef) and I spent the ENTIRE day baking divorce cakes and watching movies and reruns of “The New Adventures of Old Christine”.  The idea for divorce cakes was spawned when I saw pictures of  Shanna Moakler’s Divorce Party cake.  (See it at http://www.vegaspopular.com/2006/11/04/shanna-moaklers-divorce-party-pics-you-have-to-see-this-cake/) So, the idea was to recreate this cake and then to make some others.  I’d have to say we were pretty successful.  We started off creating a really basic wedding cake.  3 cake pans, sized 11 – 9 – 5, 2 boxes of white cake mix, eggs, and lots and lots of frosting with 2 boxes of fondant and a butt load of food coloring.  And, Disney Princess Cinderella figurines for cake toppers.  We had originally intended to use Barbie and Ken dressed up in wedding gear.  The biggest lesson of the day . . . Barbies are Huge.  Way too big for wedding cakes or . . . divorce cakes for that matter.

But wait. . . .

And, finally . . . The His and Hers cake – which did not turn out exactly as I had hoped, but it may provide some inspiration for you – our dear lovely reader.

And so there you have it.  Totally palatable therapy.  Catharsis that tastes good.  And Dessert with a sense of humor.
