It’s that time again “Back to School”.
This cake was for one of my favorite long time customers Rev.Dixon. When he needs a cake for a special occasion he always comes to me. This was for a church function today to celebrate the beginning of a new school year. The cake flavor, a classic yellow butter cake iced in vanilla butter cream. Some of the decoration I hand molded from fondant, (even the pencils) others are piped on using butter cream frosting. He was pleased and surprised that everything was edible.
I never know from year to year what cake design I’ll be doing for Ella’s cake. Ella and her Mother search out designs on the net, then send me a picture of something they like. I never do it exactly like the picture but I do use it for inspiration. This year I’m doing a Dolphin or at least I tried to create one ( I think it turned out pretty good). The Dolphin is piped with butter cream and the shells are white chocolate brushed with pearl dust for sparkle. Cake flavor is marble with vanilla butter cream.
This was such a fun cake to decorate after I finally decided HOW I was going to do it. Lucia owns a clothing shop here in town so I knew I was going to do something with dresses, purses etc. When I saw the flower pots and the bright yellow and white striped awning out front of the shop and idea was born. This is it..cake flavor, marble with vanilla butter cream all other design elements I made from fondant.
I loved doing this cake for Jennie and her family, can’t believe Jennie is 21. They are such lovely people and a very good customer. Over the years I have created many cakes for them. Most of the cakes have had pastel colors but today I thought turning 21 deserved something brighter, like HOT PINK and PURPLE with a little BLACK accent, and of course we had to have Champagne. My classic yellow butter cake with vanilla butter cream is there favorite. All flowers are butter cream.
I enjoyed making and decorating this cake for two lovely young people getting married in October (I also have the wedding cake). Since it was a “shower” I thought the piped umbrella was appropriate. Cake flavor, classic yellow butter cake with vanilla butter cream. All the flowers are butter cream.

Well it’s not Little Red Riding Hoods wolf, but he does like the color RED. RED for N.C.S.U of course.
The flavor, classic yellow butter cake with almond butter cream. The wolf I piped in butter cream.
