Cake Boss vs Book Club

This week was our last book club meeting until September. = )
I have not enjoyed our last two selections, The Comfort of Strangers in May and The Picture of Dorian Gray this month. You must have noticed that I didn't even mention book club last month? The highlight of the meeting this month was a cake. I've become addicted to the show Cake Boss. I needed something to replace Jon & Kate Plus 8.
There is a story behind the cake, there is always a story behind the cake according to Buddy. Our host had a cat named Oscar Wilde who died a month ago. Oscar Wilde wrote The Picture of Dorian Gray.
The cake was dirty frosted (term I used from Cake Boss) & covered with fondant. This was my first time having a cake with fondant. I only ate a bit of the fondant. I'm not sure if you are even supposed to eat the fondant. Anyway, it was chocolate on the inside & absolutely delicious!! Because of my new cake obsession I would have rather talked cake than Dorian. This weekend I'm going to start reading Julie & Julia 365 days, 524 recipes, 1 tiny apartment kitchen. My first non book club book in a long time. I also think I need to bake a cake!

I love Cake Boss, I set my DVR to record in case I miss it. I have never used fondant but, I heard the secret is how thin you roll it out!
