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.

A Purple and White Cake

12 Mar

March 12th turned out to be a beautiful day for a wedding, bright and sunny. The evening reception was held at the Country Club of North Carolina. The wedding cake had two flavors, chocolate fudge and classic yellow butter cake  frosted in vanilla buttercream. A purple ribbon surrounded each tier with a cascade of purple and white flowers down the front from top to bottom.  I also did 2 double layer 11×15 sheet cakes in the same flavors for extra servings.


          The Grooms cake which was served at the rehearsal dinner at Forest Creek Club House, was shaped like a tooth (the groom was a dentist).  At least I hoped it looked like a tooth, I’ve never made one before. After looking at many designs, this is what I made. The flavor was Red Velvet with cream cheese filling and frosted in vanilla buttercream. I made the tools (picks etc ) out of fondant.

This was a fairly easy cake to decorate, just scrolls and dots. All done free hand. The tiers were set at an angle. The flavor, a  classic butter cake with vanilla butter cream frosting was topped with a handmade  fondant sugar bow. The  smaller cake set to the side was red velvet, a favorite of the groom. The ornament on top was engraved with the bride and grooms names and their wedding date, a gift from the brides Mother. The silver stand, fresh Christmas greenery and red roses provided by Aldena’s florist.
