Ending July With A Bang

31 Jul

With July ending today I find I have a few cakes that I have not posted. Most are birthdays but the first 2 are for a young man and his friends having a special Scout celebration and later Richard gets to celebrate his birthday .      

 

 

 

                                             This was Richards birthday cake. He is a NC State fan.

 

 A birthday celebration at the beach with chocolate sea shells.

 

 

  Pink butter cream roses for Jean.

 

 

 

 A flamingo for Yvette

This one I had to correct the name spelling on before it was picked up but I had already taken the picture. I made the flamingo out of fondant.

 

 

Lavender Stripes and Purple

30 Apr

Ending the month of April with another stripes and dots cake. I like the color combination of lavender, dark purple and teal. The bright pink rose adds just the right “pop” of color that I needed. Cake flavors were classic butter with black raspberry filling and almond buttercream frosting.

 

A 21st Birthday Cake

24 Dec

A toast to Kendall on her 21st birthday. Flavors for her 12″- 2 layer cake were classic almond butter with almond buttercream frosting. The flowers were made from buttercream. The 21 and the olive were molded from fondant.  The martini glass was purchased.

Grooms Cake

11 Sep

This was a first for me, making a baseball cap for the top of a cake. I haven’t covered many cakes in fondant, I prefer to use a buttercream frosting for my cakes. But I think it worked out pretty good here.  The round cake was baked using half of the ball pan, the brim was fashioned using fondant covered light weight alumiunum sheet, cut and bent to form the shape needed then inserted under the fondant covered round cake.  The cake flavors were yellow butter cake with navy blue and white almond buttercream frosting. The B stood for Barton College and was cut from fondant.

Baby Shower and a Christening

27 Aug

I made 2 doz cupcakes for a baby shower. Flavors were chocolate with mocha buttercream and yellow butter cake with lemon buttercream. The booties were piped with buttercream frosting. 

  This is a 9″ 3 layer almond butter cake with almond frosting. No writing on this one  just blue roses and tiny white fondant flowers and a lace design. Made for a baby boy’s christening.

 

White Gardenia Wedding Cake

27 Jul

4 tier cake with mixed flavors. Chocolate, yellow butter and marble  cake. Fillings were Raspberry, rum and mocha buttercream. Frosted in almond buttercream. A fresh gardenia was placed on each tier.

Like Jewels from the Sea

4 Mar

I love making sea shells. These are made from melted white chocolate and are so good. I lightly brushed them with a little edible glitter (pink, lavender, gold etc) to give them a shine. The  9″ 3 layer butter cake is frosted in almond buttercream tinted a soft blue.

Shades of Pink

2 Feb

This cake was ordered by Sarah for her Mother’s birthday. She told me to use pink on the cake but to decorate it how ever I liked. I love to make flowers in shades of one color so I started with a very pale pink butter cream and increased the pink color as I made the roses. I added a few white flowers for the finishing touch. The 3 layer 9″ classic butter cake was iced in almond buttercream.
