Half A Cake Is Better Than None
So no one could wait to take pictures! Another one of my practice cakes made for friends. I think my favorite thing right now is learning new textures and borders. The flavor was requested: sour cream devil's food, choco pudding filling, with choco buttercream. Can you get too much chocolate??
Black Forest Cake
Never made one before...only ever ate it once. I think it turned out pretty good. Devil's food cake, cherries and home made whipped cream and chocolate whipped cream. This is that cantankerous 8x3 I was venting about -- it turned out fine and I made it into 3 layers. Thanks for listening to me rant -- and thanks for looking. Happy New Year!
Oval spice cake with apple filling and bc. A personal triumph for me in so many ways. TFL.
December Bridal Shower
Oval shaped orange soda cake with twinkie filling and crusting cream cheese with orange flavor. Pink poinsettias are royal icing.
Wilton Fondant Course - Final Cake
Finale cake for the fondant class - we were allowed to use any of the techniques learned. Spice cake with cinnamon filling; almond butter cream and covered in fondant. I used Wilton fondant to which I added flavoring. It still has the odd back-taste of playdough, but its a little better.
He went away a boy --and came back a Marine! Chocolate cake with chocolate filling; vanilla butter bc with fondant accents. My first time to decorate with fondant. Thanks to inspiration by eochenski.
1St Birthday Matching Cake
Chocolate sour cream cake with chocolate filling; chocolate cream cheese frosting with bc balloons to match the smash cake.
1St Birthday Smash Cake
Vanilla cake and filling; buttercream decoration. Same party included the matching chocolate cake for the adults.
Funfetti cake with strawberry filling. The swirl dots are the placeholders for the candles. I delivered the cake - they later took it to a restaurant...and then disaster hit. It was tipped, the cake slide and 1/2 the side crashed off before the candles were lit. Nonethless, the mom and birthday boy were pleased and I am happy to report they ate every crumb.
Course 3, Cake 1
First time using fondant. We ran out of time and didn't finish the flower centers and border.
2Nd Try At Basket Weave
They say if you fall off the horse, you need to get right back on...so this is my re-attempt at basket weave. Still need to figure out how to end the rope border correctly. In the meantime, that's what flower are for...camouflage!
Course 2, Final Cake
Chocolate cake with chocolate cream cheese filling. Class BC for the basket weave and small leaves, and all those royal icing flowers...I also have close up of the flowers if you want to see them. Just pm me...
Two layer chocolate with chocolate pudding filling (the mom to be's request). Cream cheese (crustable) icing, with butter-cream décor and sprinkles!! This is for a co-worker who is having her second daughter in ear;y August. I wish I could have had at least my first Wilton cake under my belt before this was due! This was truly a learning experience.
