Chocolate Crocodiles Cake

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.

Louis Vuitton Suitcase Cake

Farewells are sad, so you need to sweeten it up. This 9X13 inch lemon cake with coconut buttercream covered in chocolate fondant and stenciled with Louis Vuitton pattern in edible gold dust was a farewell sweet surprise. Lemon/coconut proved again to be a nice match in flavors.
