Caillou Cake

First attempt to make 3-tier cake, and also to make things a little more challenging, first attempt to make topsy-turvy cake. Only middle tier is actually tilted, but this was already enough for a very nervous drive to a party place.  Cakes are chocolate with chocolate ganache and chocolate buttercream (bottom), lemon  with coconut cream (middle) and vanilla with vanilla buttercream and fresh strawberries (top).

Violets Cake

Violets Cake

Violets Cake

Violets are birth flowers for February. I thought it would have been roses, but apparently roses are for June birthdays. If you want the full list, I found it here.

So this is my version of violets cake. Violets are piped with royal icing, they seem to resemble real ones, at least if you are not florist or gardener. Cake is 8 in with 4 thin chocolate layers, filled with alternating chocolate buttercream and chocolate ganache and covered with fondant.

Chocolate Crocodiles Cake

Crocodiles Cake

Some kids like crocodiles, so the challenge was to make a birthday cake that features these not-so-beautiful creatures and still looks attractive to party guests that are not into crocodiles.  Inside it is a chocolate cake with Vanilla Italian Meringue buttercream. Outside it’s covered in chocolate fondant and a little puddle in the middle is actually blue-green  jello jiggler that would reveal it’s colors better if it was sitting on a lighter background. Crocs are molded chocolates.
