The only problem is that many decorators just don't have the "skillz" necessary to pull off a really good dong cake. [smirk] So instead, they make their cakes look like popcorn.
(For what it's worth, that segue made more sense in my head.)
Now, bakers, the first thing to do when making a popcorn cake - and this is very important - is to try to make a cake that looks like popcorn.
Or maybe just label it "popcorn."
As useful as labeling can be, though, there are still times when you want your popcorn cake to kind of look a little bit like actual popcorn:
Really, though, I think you can do a little better than that. Go on! Give it a try.
Ok, obviously this isn't working. Tell you what, bakers: why don't we try something a little more... drastic?
So the moral is: when you can't figure out how to make something in icing, just put the real thing on there instead!
Although I wouldn't suggest it with the Dong cake.
The health inspectors might complain.
Thanks to John B., Mia & Trinh, Melissa S., Dolly N., Chelsea E., Miles J., Amy S., & John M., who think all popcorn should come with a side of icing. Yeah. Just imagine all that soggy, salty, greasy goodness! Mmmmmmmhurk.
