Cakes for Different Occasions

10 Jul

My week (July 6-10th) was a pretty busy week, starting with a cake for a little girls 9th birthday, she wanted something with a horse. The sheet cakes (red velvet with cream cheese frosting) were for a celebration, last Chemo treatment and a “thank you” for her nurses and doctors. The last 2 were for ladies celebrating their special day. Their flavors were the classic yellow butter cake with vanilla butter cream.

Molly and Dean’s Wedding Cake

24 May

May 24th turned out to be a gorgeous day for Molly and Dean’s wedding. The reception was held at the Country Club of North Carolina in Southern Pines.  As always the room was lovely. Lots of beautiful flower arrangement for all the tables done by Aldena’s  Floral Designs in Aberdeen. The wedding cake had two flavors,Bowness  red velvet with cream cheese filling and classic yellow butter cake with vanilla butter cream. Iced in vanilla butter cream in a basket weave design with fresh pink and white Peonies.   I also made two sheet cakes for extra servings.

The Scales of Justice

13 Nov

Well, this was a first for me, doing a cake for a chief justice. Since I didn’t know  exactly what it looked like I launched a search. I found many pictures and styles to choose from  but this one worked out the best. I drew the design on paper then used that for my pattern. I then cut it from fondant and brushed it with “old gold” dust to give it the look of medal.  The fall leaves and flowers are also fondant. Flavor of the cake (one of my favorites) carrot cake with cream cheese frosting.
