I’ve included Birthday, Holiday and a Religious cake from the past few weeks! You can click on each picture to make it bigger and bring up a description of it! Thanks for being patient with me! More cakes to come in a few days!
There have only been a few instances where people have asked me to recreate a cake that I have previously done before. Most times, I will change elements of the design to make it a little new and fresh. I think this is the first time I’ve kept with the original design so closely! I love this cake design…it’s just so fun! The mom wanted it tweaked a little to include the 16-year-old’s favorite colors: pink, orange and teal. I love how they look like sherbet! And I love the addition of the pearl luster too to make it shimmer! Happy Sweet 16, Elly!
Okay, I’m a few cakes behind and I have another two I’m currently working on.
The first cake was for a mother’s birthday. It happened to be Mother’s day weekend. The family didn’t want to focus on how old their mom was, but who she is to the people in her family…hence the flowers with the names written on them. The cupcakes went with the cake.
The second cake was for a graduation celebration at my husband’s work. Three of his co-workers were graduating.
I’m taking this cake to our 6th Annual Joellenbeck Easter Egg Hunt today! It’s doubling as a birthday cake. It’s a yellow cake on the bottom and a chocolate cake on top. It’s iced in buttercream, gumpaste daisies and sign, fondant bunny and fence, and the Easter eggs are made from white modeling chocolate.
I hope your families have a truely Happy Easter!
So, my newly-found chocolate cake recipe is not easily divided in half. I only needed 1/2 of a recipe of it today, so I made the rest of the batter into cupcakes. I also had a little bit of fondant left from a few of my recent cakes, so I decorated the cupcakes with the leftovers. I think they turned out pretty cute! We’ll be taking them to my husband’s parents’ house tomorrow for dinner (well, for after dinner).
This is the cake I made last night for the class final. It is a white cake with oreo buttercream filling. It is covered in chocolate fondant and decorated with gumpaste daisies. I’m really going to miss going to these classes. The next one is wired flowers, but I’m not sure when it will be available next…hopefully soon!
