Reaching the age of 90 calls for a special celebration. My friend Diana was giving her Mother a birthday party and asked me to do a cake for the occasion. To make it extra special I did a tiered cake with lots of flowers, and a 90 formed from fondant. The guest of honor loves pink, so I made butter cream roses in different shades and the other tiny flowers are cut from fondant. The flavor, a lemon butter cake filled & iced in lemon/almond butter cream.
This 11×15 sheet cake was pretty easy to put together. Made for a young man of 28 the customer wanted something simple and not a lot of flowers or decorations, so this is what i came up with. I used Wilton’s pattern presses with this design in the corners and with just a few tiny fondant flowers here and there for color, i was finished. The flavor was classic butter cake with vanilla butter cream frosting.
Bright and pretty were my instructions for this 11×15 yellow butter cake. So I made a combination of butter cream and fondant flowers in lots of colors.The design was also left up to me. I squared off the center like a frame and piped a lacy design around the edge before placing on the flowers at opposite corners. The cake was iced in vanilla butter cream.
Morgan loves bright colors, so on this 10″ round yellow butter cake I used hot pinks, teal, lime green & yellow. It was iced in almond butter cream. The 21 is formed from fondant. It was a great hit with the birthday girl or should I say “lady”. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MORGAN
This cake was for a 50th Anniversary but they used a different color other than the usual gold/yellow seen at most 50th. I loved the purplish/lavender colors, especially since it was Easter weekend. The cake tiers ( 2 layers each) were 6″-10″-& a 14″ yellow butter cake with almond butter cream. Fresh flowers were provided by the florist. The party was held at Little River Farms Golf and Resort.
The colors on this cake remind me of Spring. Lauren always orders her own birthday cake each year and gets a combo of chocolate & yellow butter cake with vanilla butter cream, she leaves the decorations up to me. Not sure what to call the flowers, i just wanted to do something different. So, i guess they can be whatever you want them to be.
