Butterfly Pull-Apart Cake

1 May

This has got to be one of the easiest cakes I’ve ever done. Made with  cupcakes. Some people call them cupcake cakes or pull-apart cakes. Whatever you want to call it, it was fun. The customer was desperate for a cake and I didn’t have time to bake one, all I had were a few leftover cupcakes and flowers from another order. She said “I’ll take them”, so instead of doing them as individual cupcakes I pushed them together to create a small sheet cake. The butterfly was an edible image.

The request for this cake was lots of butterflies and lady bugs. All decorations were made from fondant. Cake flavor, a yellow butter cake with vanilla buttercream. I also made a small one just for the baby.

Sheet Cakes and a Wedding Cake

27 Mar

Most of my cakes for Friday and Saturday were pick ups except the wedding cake and Saturday turned out to be a very wet day. Rain, rain, rain. Not good for an outside wedding reception even under a tent.

I loved doing the sheet cakes, one was for a 9-year-old girl, the other for a 50’s birthday party.   Not knowing what design to do for Alexandra’s cake I gave  her a flower garden with a butterfly. All flowers made from fondant, the butterfly was purchased.

 The other sheet cake is a design I also love to do, stars, stars and more stars. Some on wires others just on the cake. The colors requested were red and black.I added a 6″ single round on the top to give the stars on wires a lift. Stars and the 50 were fondant.

By the time I was to deliver the wedding cake in the late afternoon it was really beginning to rain. I packed the cake in boxes covered with Saran for protection. Guests were arriving and trying to stay as dry as possible, they quickly hurried under the tent. Items for the wedding (flowers etc) that were  outside had to be brought under the tent. It was getting a little crowded but the guests seemed to be taking it all in stride. The cake was to be on a cake stand and to have fresh flowers but they didn’t make it to the table so the cake looks a little bare except for the black ribbon that I wrapped around each tier.

A Butterfly Garden Cake

29 Sep

I created this cake for a party that was given for a family that was moving to another state. I used the butterfly in flight as a symbol for the move/going away. Cake flavor was chocolate with vanilla buttercream. The butterfly & flowers were fondant.

One Cake,2 Occasions

7 May

This cake celebrates 2 occasions. Since it’s Mother’s Day this weekend and her Mom’s Birthday, the customer wanted to celebrate both . Some call her Mom, to others she answers to Grammie. The 9 ” 3 layer yellow butter cake was iced in vanilla butter cream. Flowers are buttercream and fondant.

40th Birthday Cake

1 May

No black for this 40th birthday. Gina is a beautiful lady who loves color.

So, since this  was the 1st day of May,  I made it with lots of bright  flowers and a butterfly. Most of the flowers are butter cream with the smaller ones cut from fondant along with a fondant butterfly. The size 11×15, the flavor, a chocolate marble cake with vanilla butter cream frosting.
