A Birthday Cake for Bill

20 Feb

A Birthday Cake for BillI have made so many cakes for this family over the years it’s hard to come up with a new design but Jeanie loved this one. The only thing she asked was the same flavor of cake and frosting (yellow butter cake with vanilla butter cream) that she always gets and NO black writing. As you can see I wrote in blue. Cake size, 2 layer 10″ round. The yellow roses are butter cream.

Camo/Hunting Cake

17 Feb

Camo/Hunting          It was fun getting the camo look. You just drop different colors on and then smooth off. It doesn’t have to be perfect. That was the fun of it. Cake flavor, yellow butter with vanilla butter cream frosting. The hunting silhouette was made from candy clay. A tasty alternative to fondant.

80th Birthday

9 Feb

80th BirthdayThis was a fun cake to do.The  instructions given to me were, enough cake to feed about 100, with the colors of yellow, purple and a “dash” of red. It was up to me to design the cake. I added a small 6″ cake to the side to give the stars and roses some height. Cake flavor, yellow butter with vanilla butter cream frosting. The stars & hearts on wires were fondant , the yellow roses were butter cream. Cake #2 was the same flavor and size 12 x 18. I squared this one-off into 2″ sq’s. (for easy cutting) with a piped rose bud in each square.

Baby Shower

Baby Shower    I was given several design ideas for this baby shower cake by my customer but we decided on this one. The design items were made from “candy clay”. A very nice medium to work with and taste great. Cake flavor, chocolate cake with vanilla butter cream frosting.

Jamie’s 50th Birthday

4 Feb

Birthday for JamieJamie was celebrating her 50th birthday this year, so for her special day I made her favorite cake,  chocolate  with vanilla butter cream frosting. She also loves the color Purple (but here it looks bluish) so I made purple butter cream flowers and added a purple ruffle at the bottom.
