With June almost over I thought I would do a little cake posting catchup. Most have been for people of different ages but today I did a small cake for a dogs birthday. I guess any occasion is good if you want to eat cake.
This is Fritz (the dog) cake. Of course it’s really for the owners of Fritz. They love my cake.
This year I made only one cake for Graduation-This one:
This past Saturday (June 6th ) proved to be kinda busy for me, with 2 small wedding cakes, 2 doz cup cakes , a birthday cake plus a 2 tier baby shower cake. Cake flavors were all the same, classic butter cake iced in vanilla butter cream. The pink Mums are piped butter cream, the small flowers are fondant.
Wedding Cake number 2 was easier, no flowers, just a piped design with a dark plum color fabric ribbon wrapped around each tier. This cake also had a strawberry butter cream filling. .
Tiffany Blue is such a pretty color but not the easiest color to capture in icing. I hope I got it at least near the right shade. This was a lemon butter cake with lemon butter cream and fondant decorations.
Today just seemed like the right time to make a yellow iced cake. The weather has been so beautiful here the last few days, sunny and bright. The cake flavor, a classic yellow butter cake with vanilla butter cream. Flowers on top are butter cream daisies and the flowers scattered around the bottom are fondant.
I’m always trying to come up with ideas for sheet cakes for a man and when my minds a blank I fall back on stripes. Here I’ve used blue (a good stand by) and yellow with just a few fondant flowers..
I make a lot of sheet cakes and sometimes it’s a struggle to come up with designs for all of them. I try not to repeat myself to many times. Sometimes the customer tells me exactly what they want, other times it’s up to me. The cake flavor here is a classic yellow butter cake (11 x 15) with peach colored vanilla butter cream. The white daisies are fondant.
