Here it is the last weekend of August and I have been sooo busy. Mostly birthday’s, some sheet cakes. Not real crazy about doing sheets but they are easy to cut if you have a crowd to feed. Here are just a few from this week.
This was to be an Anniversary cake for a small party. Just a simple 3 layer 9″ cake, but I thought it needed a little something extra so I added the 6″ top. I also made 4 sugar paste gardenia’s (My first try at these flowers), I brushed them with pearl dust to give them a little shine.and made fondant leaves and brushed these with a soft green dust. The flavor, a yellow butter cake with almond buttercream. The customer was very pleased and happy with the way I had decorated the cake.
This was my first time doing the sugar booties, something I have wanted to try many times. I think for my first try they came out pretty good. I laced them with real ribbon. Cake size, 10″ 2 layer topped with a 2 layer 6″.
The cake flavor was my old stand by that everyone loves, classic butter with vanilla buttercream. The flowers were fondant.
Today I felt like doing daisies for my decorations and since my customer’s didn’t care what I put on the cakes I went with it. They were both the same flavor only the color was different (yellow butter cake/vanilla frosting.) I iced the top of the first one with a soft yellow frosting so the white daisies would show up better. The side was left white and I added yellow dots. The accent colors were a darker shade of yellow. The second cake I made pink&white daises. using white at the base of the flower I layered on 2 shades of pink to create a little different look to my flower. The accent colors here were lavender & teal. All flowers were fondant.
