A Merry Christmas Snow Flake Cake

20 Dec




A Square 3 tier + 1

14 Dec

This was a fairly easy cake to decorate, just scrolls and dots. All done free hand. The tiers were set at an angle. The flavor, a  classic butter cake with vanilla butter cream frosting was topped with a handmade  fondant sugar bow. The  smaller cake set to the side was red velvet, a favorite of the groom. The ornament on top was engraved with the bride and grooms names and their wedding date, a gift from the brides Mother. The silver stand, fresh Christmas greenery and red roses provided by Aldena’s florist.

A Birthday Book

This was a 12″x18″ yellow butter sheet cake with vanilla butter cream frosting and it was made for a minister. The scripture verse is a favorite of his. The poinsettia and stars were made of fondant. Gold ribbon was used as a bookmark.

Boy, I’m so glad to have this order behind me. It’s been a very long night & day. I had 20 to do. This is the third year that i have had the pleasure of doing these special cakes. The cakes are “thank you gift’s” for all the doctors that work with these nice people. It’s always great to get something sweet to eat. I am so glad they like my cakes.  Here are just a few of the cake designs this year. Some are repeats from years past. Cakes were 11×15  sheets, yellow butter with vanilla buttercream frosting.
