Last October was a month of many retirements at work. Our company offered the “Golden Handshake” which is basically an attractive retirement package to anyone close to retirement, thinking about an upcoming retirement or anyone wanting to find employment elsewhere. This was offered to help the company’s budget in the upcoming year(s) and we had close to about 40 people who accepted the offer. I made this cake for two of my coworkers and then made 3 separate mini cakes for 3 other coworkers. We gifted them with vintage engraved forks I found on Etsy. I found inspiration for this cake on Pinterest. This cake was a chocolate cake with strawberry buttercream and fresh sliced strawberry filling and frosted with Frostin Pride. My handwriting on a cake is not so good and I never get it aligned right so my trick is to find a font I like, trace it with royal icing on waxed paper and transfer it to the cake (or on fondant plaques). The smaller cakes were 4” mini chocolate cakes with buttercream filling and frosting cake
Winter Lake - From The Island Cakes
With so many beautiful Island Cakes during the Summer I had this one going on in my mind. Thought why not put it out here....I may be a bit early but hey ideas can't wait can they?
Beer Mug Cake
Client (Co-worker) wanted a "Beer Can Cake" for her dad. She knew I was a cake decorator, but never seen what kind of cakes I create. I told her I was going to make a Beer Can Cake for her, but it might be a little different than what she was expecting. She said what I as a cake decorator love to hear ... "go ahead, make me whatever kind of cake you'd like." Her and her husband loved it, and were speechless! Her father was overjoyed with his cake! She said the cake does not look real and that it is not like anything she ever imagined when she said she wanted a Beer Can Cake. (There is a man laying "under" the beer with his mouth open drinking it, and a man used a ladder to climb up the mug to "get in" the beer. (I love, love, love to see/hear people's reaction when they see their cakes for the first time. We did it again Grandma! Thank you dear God for guiding my hand.)
