Work Images on Cake Central
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
Vanilla cake, raspberry mousse filling, lemon buttercream. Vanilla cake, caramel mousse filling, vanilla buttercream. Tons and tons of fondant for towers and brick work! :) Made for Maxine through Icing Smiles Canada! :)
Elephant Baby Shower
Not my best work... very last minute. I literally had 4 hours of notice! Fondant elephant, yellow cake and vanilla buttercream.
Confirmation Cake - Saint Benedict
A Confirmation cake for a young man that chose St. Benedict as his Confirmation Saint. The inside of the cake is lemon cake with lemony cream cheese icing. Decorated also with cream cheese frosting piping. The topper was hand made and tailor made for the occasion. The topper is entirely edible and made using fondant and pastillage. In the book is written "Ora et Labora", Latin for "Pray and Work," the motto of Saint Benedict. Sancte Pater Benedicte, Ora pro nobis!
