I have done cakes, cup cakes and cake pops, and the all popular cookie. Here are some of the cakes I've had the privilege to create and I hope you have good things to say about them! Just kidding!
Made for Malek, one of my 6th graders. He found the perfect birthday cake, it's a show he loves to watch (He found a photo on-line, not sure where I searched and found it on flickr.com under the food pornographer's blog).
It was red velvet with vanilla butter cream covered with Fondx fondant and jimmies. Homer was made of fondant.
4 Men having a birthday, (you will notice many different themes).
What do you get when a doctor, a banker, and 2 major OU fans/hunters celebrate a birthday together?
A doctor with two left feet!
The story goes... doc was dancing like a wild man (obviously!) and fell right into the cake! Fortunately, they had served some cake before he Peter Panned off the stage! Way to go doc!
Now, can you imagine the wives scooping up any cake that was good enough to eat (not touching the floor)? Well that's what happened! I don't blame them-I'd do it too! I love cake!
I just hope everyone had a great time!
Happy Birthday guys!
The cake was dark chocolate and white cake filled and iced with cream cheese butter cream. All the decorations were edible (except for the wires in coffee straws holding the oil spewing out of the oil derricks.
The OU and the Schooner (fondant w/tylose) were colored red with Gourmet Writers (food markers).
Notice the deer, "Mr. Cool". He may have lost his antlers in the battle with the hunters, but he won the war! He tied the barrel of the rifle in a knot and removed the string from the bow.
Just below are a some different angles of the cake.
I hope he liked them!
I was so proud of this cake. I completed it before our Florida trip and delivered it to the restaurant. Unfortunately, there was a problem. I believe the walk in fridge the cake was put in was so humid the cake began to come apart at the sails.
Thanks to Rachael, my SIL, the cake was salvaged and it looked just as it had before.
Leslie said it was perfect for the party.
John Deer! It had to be a Case! Apparently these are rival brands and I had no idea it even existed, but I know now there is definitely a difference!
This particular tractor was yummy! It was dark chocolate cake filled with chocolate butter cream and the field is outlined with Fondarific chocolate fondant. This was a really big cake! One of the heaviest I've ever had the pleasure of delivering! Good thing I had been working out!
I love it when that happens!
Then again I do enjoy the challenge of designing a cake. Which is what is coming up at the end of the month.
Here is a cake I almost had forgotten about. I made this for my niece a couple of years ago. She was a ballerina and had danced since she was 5. Kathy, my sister requested some toe shoes and tadaa...there you see them. Believe it or not, my she still has them wrapped in plastic and frozen.
That cracks me up! People can be so funny!
It's time for me to say, "Good night!" I need to get some rest for my 6th graders tomorrow, they can be a real handful! Pray for me and have a blessed week!
