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!

Wine Box Cake {UPDATED}

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!

Jeannine’s First Communion

Tomorrow, we are attending my niece’s first communion.  Here is the cake I made for the party afterward.  The young lady’s favorite color is lime green.  I tamed it a little and used her second favorite color…pink!  May God bless you on your Holy Day, Jeannine!

Caroline’s First Communion

Today is my youngest cousin’s First Communion.  My aunt asked me to make a cake (with white and pink).  Here’s what I came up with…

The cake is chocolate and has a coconut filling and is iced in coconut buttercream.  The roses are buttercream and the white decorations are made out of gumpaste and then dusted with a white luster dust.  This is one of the rare opportunities that I’ll get to actually enjoy  one of the cakes!  This flavor combo was designed by the young lady…it may end up on the flavors list later today!

God bless you, Caroline on your Holy day!
