Most of the flowers were made from buttercream, the tiny ones are fondant. The leaves, turkey and pumpkins are fondant . Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!
When I started this cake I didn’t know how I was going to decorate it. I make so many sheet cakes it’s hard sometimes to come up with a design. Some people like sheet cakes, others not, but they are easier to serve for a crowd. So I began by making a few yellow buttercream roses in different sizes. The design just kind of emerged after that. Not really original but I used up all the roses and my customer loved it. The cake flavor, yellow butter cake with vanilla buttercream.
I have been making cakes for this couple for all types of occasions for such a long time and I was so happy I was asked to create a cake for this special celebration. Flavors were lemon butter cake with lemon buttercream frosting. The yellow roses were made from buttercream. The design a simple old-fashioned ruffle drape, topped with a 50th emblem and a gold ribbon bow.
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY JACK AND MYRA!
Cake #1 was made for a man who loves chocolate cake & chocolate frosting. The 11×15 2 layer cake was filled and frosted with a rich fudge butter cream. The yellow flowers were butter cream, everything blue was fondant.
Cake #2 was made for a lady who loves beautiful flowers. I baked a single layer of yellow butter cake (11×15 ) topped it with a single 6″ layer and frosted them with vanilla butter cream. I made lots of butter cream flowers in different colors for a cascade. I added a ribbon bow at the back.
My computer has been down so i haven’t posted any new pictures for quite some time. This is one of many that i hope to share with you.
This cake a 14″ round was for 3 people turning 50. The flavor, chocolate cake with raspberry filling and almond butter cream frosting. Flowers were butter cream and fondant. The 50 was handmolded from fondant and brushed with gold petal dust. Wires were inserted while it was soft so it would stand up.
The cakes are small but the occasion was very special.
I baked a single 6″ and a 10″ 2 layer chocolate fudge cake. The frosting was vanilla buttercream. The customer requested white roses with a soft green leaf. The placement of the roses was left up to me. The ornament on top was a gold cross with 2 rings and bells at the bottom with a 50 etched on them. Simple and very pretty.
Cake #2 had a different look, they wanted yellow butter cake with chocolate buttercream. This one I did with yellow buttercream roses and a darker green leaf and a 50th pick. It was also a 10″ 2 layer.
