Tastings from Around the World

I made this cake for a fundraiser at my son’s school.  They hosted a Wine and Beer Tasting event that included items up for raffle…sure hope the winner of this cake shares! This year’s theme was Wines and Beers from around the world.  The suitcase, instead of being covered with travel labels, is covered in edible wine labels from around the world.  The crackers and grapes were made from gum paste.  Stay tuned…I’ll be announcing a few new flavors in the coming weeks!

Arkansas Razorbacks Cake

Arkansas Razorbacks Cake

I am thrilled with this cake!  I love it when a cake is a challenge, and I love the way this one came out!  I wish I could have been a fly on the wall at the unveiling of this cake!  It was a surprise for a big Razorbacks fan that just earned his military stripes.  His wife was throwing him a big surprise party.  Congratulations, Jonathan!  Gerrr!

The Cake That Almost Was…

Movie-Themed Cake

Movie-Themed Cake

Back in August, I was contacted by a school to make a cake for their fundraising auction. Over the last several months, we’ve emailed back and forth to come up with the perfect cake for their event. I spent a few hours designing it, several hours in the last week getting the decorations finished so they had time to dry, a few hours baking, and then several more hours decorating the cake. When I left to deliver it, it looked like the above.

Wine Box Cake {UPDATED}

Wine Box Cake

Wine Box Cake

This cake was made for a donation to a fundraising event for our school. The event was a wine tasting and it was to be a part of a raffle. This cake was a difficult one for me, not because the cake was difficult, but because I ended up having to bake it twice…at 2 AM. There was a mini mental breakdown at 4AM and after a few hours of sleep and the help of my sister, who watched the kids for a few hours, I was able to focus and knock it out. I would have taken pictures, but I REALLY would rather NOT remember it!

Emily, everyone loved your cake. A friend of Mrs. Shannon’s won it and is going out of town so she gave it to the teachers. They are all in for a wonderful treat Monday!!!! ~ Kathy

UPDATED 04/12/2010:  I found out last yesterday that this cake was won by a woman who turned around and donated it to the teachers at the school to enjoy!  I think that’s very sweet and I hope they all enjoyed it today!

Happy 2010!
