80th Birthday

9 Feb

80th BirthdayThis was a fun cake to do.The  instructions given to me were, enough cake to feed about 100, with the colors of yellow, purple and a “dash” of red. It was up to me to design the cake. I added a small 6″ cake to the side to give the stars and roses some height. Cake flavor, yellow butter with vanilla butter cream frosting. The stars & hearts on wires were fondant , the yellow roses were butter cream. Cake #2 was the same flavor and size 12 x 18. I squared this one-off into 2″ sq’s. (for easy cutting) with a piped rose bud in each square.

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.

Red,White & Blue

3 Jul

It’s almost the 4th of July and not having a traditional flag cake this year I decorated the 2 birthday cakes with touches of red,white & blue just to get in the spirit of the day. Both cakes were chocolate with vanilla buttercream frosting. Stars and batman symbol were fondant.
