Apple Newton Cake

This is one of the first cakes I ever made, it has to be at least four years ago that I made it.

I like to look back at my earlier cakes to see how I’ve improved. I still think this cake is pretty neat aside from the roughness about it.

I remember the part that took the longest was the little apple icon at the bottom. I had to mix each color separately and pipe it on just right. Trying to get all the icons and wording to fit took some patience too!

I made this cake for my then boyfriend, now fiance, Aaron. He is a Mac fan, as am I. He was into collecting Apple Newton and MessagePads at the time.

*What I Learned: It’s a good idea to draw out your design before you start decorating, it allows you to get a feel for how you need to arrange elements of the cake.

*Sweet Advice: Be patient! It’s best to take things slow and think them out as you do them. Remember that old rule from grade school? “Measure twice, cut once!”

    you could make some Alice in Wonderland cookies (like in the film) that say “eat me”

    ..not very original, but i think they’d look great 🙂
