90th Birthday

16 Jul

To reach the age of 90 I think you always deserve to have a party. I was very happy that this mans daughter, Caroline, asked me to create a cake for this special occasion. I asked her what decorations she wanted she said “whatever I wanted to do but he likes golf, tennis and is a big Duke Blue Devil fan.” With those ideas in mind this is what I came up with. The cake flavor is a classic yellow butter cake with vanilla buttercream. I also did a marble sheet cake for additional servings.

Graduation Cakes

13 May

           This weekend is filled with graduations all over the state, so my congratulations to all the graduates.

 This cake was fun to do. They wanted a bear with a  hat for a male graduating from nursing school. I included a stethoscope and a clip board, all made from fondant. Lemon cake with lemon buttercream.

 

  This one was for 2 young men graduating from Duke today. Flavor for this one was  yellow butter cake with vanilla buttercream , a  family favorite.
