Torta De Fresas
Torta de Fresas or Strawberry cake, a classic of my childhood. Every bakery in town will have these on the shelves. My hometown was one of the very few cities in Venezuela where you can find fresh strawberries, as we were located in the mountains, nearby a rural area were strawberries were produced. A luxury back those days. The layers are syrup soaked sponge cake with pastry cream and homemade strawberry jam. The frosting is torched Italian Meringue. Topped with fresh strawberries varnished with gelatin glaze. Today is Pentecost Sunday, we celebrate with red, nothing better than red strawberries from our garden.
Andy's Drip Birthday Cake
Strawberry cake with cream cheese filling and frosting with red drip and fresh strawberries.
The Roses Are Red, The Lilies Are White.
A very romantic vintage style cake for a young couple. The lovely bride wanted a floral cake and pointed out one of my vintage style cake as inspirations. I made the design and she was pleased. This one was absolutely within my comfort zone... my kind of cake! Once I finished I thought McKinley Wilton will be proud of me! White cake frosted and filled in buttercream. Roses, lilies and greenery in fondant. Piping in buttercream.
Texas Tech Cake
Raider Red was hand cut out of fondant. The TT emblem is from a mold I made from a Texas Tech ornament to put on your car. It has served me well.
