I was approached by an old co-worker to create a wedding cake for her daughter's wedding ceremony. But not what you normally would think of when designing a wedding cake: this cake was to be for photo-ops! The bride and groom chose to serve cupcakes to their guests, a growing trend these days. However, they wanted to still have a cake to cut together so the bride's mother came to me. Together we came up with this simple and elegant design of a small 5 inch white square cake with clusters of pearls on all four sides. They requested that there be no topper (I'm assuming that they added their own at the reception). I've asked for some photos of the bride and groom cutting the cake so if I get them, I'll post! :)
I not only learned a couple new tricks while making this cake but I got to experiment with a new recipe combination: dark chocolate cake with raspberry filling and cream cheese frosting. All made from scratch of course! :) Cake was a hit and went fast!
It's been a while since I have posted anything, let alone made anything but I hope that will change soon. I have an itch to experiment with some recipes and techniques! I started with a new vanilla cake recipe that I think is super moist and flavorful....yuuummm!!! A friend's daughter asked me to make a tuxedo cake for her boyfriend's 23rd birthday (she must be throwing him some fancy shindig of a party! lol). "Happy Birthday, Chris!"
Summer is a busy time for my family for birthdays and sometimes we do joint birthday parties just because there are so many! This year for my nieces' 7th and 8th birthdays, they had a beach themed party. So I topped it off with a beachy cake!
Also, I had the opportunity to do a Baymax cake! For those of you who don't know who that is, he is the big cuddly white blob (I think he is a robot, lol) from the movie, Big Hero 6!
