2015-New Year Cake

31 Dec

Here it is ..the last few hours of 2014. This year seems to have passed so quickly, much more so than others. Maybe it’s because I’m a year older. I never pictured myself at 78 still doing cakes but here I am. My thanks to anyone that has looked at them and found  inspiration for their own cakes, checked out the recipes or enjoyed the “other stuff” here on my blog.

My last cake made in 2014…….

Chocolate cake, vanilla butter cream with fondant silver & gold stars.

Another “Joe” Cake

29 Oct

It’s Halloween time again, time for Joe’s Halloween birthday cake.

Each year I try to come up with a different look, so this year I used a combination of things. None are original but I just grouped them together on top and along the sides of the cake. The eye ball base was a cupcake I covered in frosting then in fondant, the hand holding it was also fondant as well as all the cut outs around the sides. Cake flavor is always the same, yellow butter cake filled with black raspberry buttercream, iced in almond buttercream.

Not for the 4th of July but a Birthday on July 4th.

I’ve been making HU’s birthday cakes for quite some now and sometimes he wants another theme but most often its red,white and blue. I think some of them are posted here in the archives. The 9″ 3 layer cake is chocolate with vanilla butter cream frosting. Stars are fondant cut outs.

  HAPPY 10TH BIRTHDAY HU AND HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!!!!!
