Well, a sad attempt to get all the unicorns base painted before the youngest crawled out of bed was just futile....He was up and pitching a hissy from the very beginning. I cannot say I blame him. Lots of sparkly dust and chocolate were all over the kitchen and he couldn't touch any of it. This does not make a 3 year old very happy. Thankfully I had a few pieces that were broken. Pushed those right over to him. It only calmed him for a bit but hey, when you're a mom you take what you can get.
3 Hours of screaming later and I finally said enough and shoved it all back into the fridge for later. Luckily I was able to assembly line the whole project, so I got more done than I thought I was going to be able to. Granted that was only like 3 dozen chocolates base painted but hey! It's progress! Why I gave myself a whole week to make 1 cake.
The unicorns are basically done though. I will be adding in black around the eyes and then the red eyes themselves closer to her birthday since that will be in icing and not chocolate. Now I need to dust a couple of hundred bones with cocoa powder to give them that ~been in the ground~ look.
But I think that will have to wait. I need to work on getting some more recipes done for my cook book. So with that, I am going to move my attention there and leave you with a few pictures.
