This Sweet 16 cake was supposed to resemble a stunning creation from Pink Cake Box.
Inside it’s red velvet cake with cream cheese filling. Tiers are 12″, 10″ and 8″. Decorations are mostly fondant, topper and bow are made of gumpaste.

Baptism Cake

This is 2 tier cake for baptism. Fondant bow looked really nice as a topper. Royal icing scrolls were more difficult to do than expected, because of vertical surface. Butterflies are a nice touch and were a lot of fun to make.

I came across this cake idea on the web and really liked it. The cake turned out a lot of fun to make.  There was also a surprise part – Rafaello treat inside each of the rolls. “Salmon” is rice crispy treat wrapped in fondant.

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 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.
