Well, 'tis the season to figure out who is naughty or nice.
Last night I got another rush order for someone who is without a doubt on the naughty list. As I explained in my last post, I can't say no, I won't go over it all again, but this time it earned me a rush order with only 14 hours to deliver this cake. I said yes, thinking I would do a nice white buttercream cake, with some snowflakes, maybe some cascading snow drifts.
Then came the final details of the order " can you make it a naughty cake?"
A naughty cake, in 14 hours, and I have never done anything of the sort.
Fortunately the recipient is one of my fathers best friends that is like family, and has a wonderful sense of humor, so that took a bit of pressue off.  This is how I made my 1st naughty cake.

Using what I had on hand I was able to bake 2 cakes using my Wilton Soccer Ball Pan, and a large 12 inch square base cake to carve.  The ball pans will be used for the booty and the square cake will be carved for the body.
I mixed a little Brown Wilton fondant into some white Satin Ice fondant to obtain a tan flesh color.

I then carved the "cheeks" flattening on one side so they would fit together. Next I placed them on cake boards and iced each cake individually.

Then using a lid to one of my large pots I carved out a waist line ( much like my own..hahaha! )

I cut the dowels for support, and stacked my "cheeks" on the base cake.

Now it was time for the fondant.
After my last fondant experience I switched to Satin Ice , hoping it wasn't just a fluke that it worked so well. Using The Mat I rolled out the fondant and WOW! I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful the Satin Ice is. It rolls smooth, quickly and just falls off The Mat when I apply it. Perfect!!!

I use my hands to smooth the fondant and create the contours followed by a few passes of my flattened fondant ball for a glass like finish.

Next came the thong.
I used orange fondant rolled out and cut in a triange with VERY elongated angles. This was not nearly as easy as I had imagined it to be. After a few attempts my booty was clothed ( kind of ) .

By this time it was midnight, I was exhausted and I still had lettering and a tattoo to do.  I decided to go against everything I stand for and put inedible decor on a cake.
This cake had become a first for many things.
We just purchased a Silhouette Cameo cutter that Brandon has perfected the use of  and I have no idea how to even turn on, so he offered to make the writing for me.

While he did that I used a medium heart shaped cookie cutter to make a red fondant heart and cut a free hand banner for the tattoo . Once I had that together Brandon applied the lettering and I was almost done.

After transferring to the cake board that I had covered in wrapping paper to save time, I rolled some flesh colored ropes to use as a border and Good Night .

I knew this last night but I was being an optimist. NEVER use wrapping paper in place of fondant on a board unless you are putting a covering over the paper. I woke up to a couple grease stains where the buttercream was starting to bleed onto the paper. So, as my father always says" never time to do it right but always time to do it over" , or something like that.
9am, I'm rolling out fondant to cover the board.

The finished product

All of the men went crazy over this cake. I have a feeling I'll be making a few more.


  1. This is VERY cute, especially for a "naughty" cake! So was the Happy Birthday lettering cut out on paper? You mentioned it was inedible. Have you tried cutting edible image sheets in the Silhouette? Thanks for sharing!!

  2. Thank you Jenniffer! The Happy Birthday was done on some sticker paper. I have not tried the image sheets yet but that is a great idea! I was thinking of ordering the special blade to cut gumpaste with it but don't have it yet . Have you tried the image sheets yet?
