Today is my sweetie's 29th birthday, so I made him this super-special Cylon Raider cake. Jared, if it weren't for you, I may still be playing sports - not making crafts and watching Battlestar Galactica. (Have I rubbed off on you at all?)
Happy birthday. :)
It was my first attempt at fondant, and I used sparkly powder stuff without the proper tools (like the airbrush it requires). All I can say is, FUN! I need to be adventurous with my cakes more often.
This cake has a delicious raspberry filling (a Raider wouldn't be a Raider without the guts), and I want to eat it by the spoonful. Here's the recipe.
1 10oz. package frozen raspberries, thawed
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup sugar
Puree raspberries and strain through a fine sieve to remove the seeds. In a saucepan, combine all ingredients and bring to a boil over medium heat. Done! Let cool completely if using as a cake filling.
Update: He liked it!
