Getting ready for our show this weekend. We have 200+ pounds of our special family recipe Fruitcake all ready to go. Have been working on Yuletide Cakes (Bûche de Noël) as well this week. We have these delicious cakes available for order . A festive dessert for your holiday table. They make beautiful host or hostess gifts as well. A Bûche de Noël has been a longtime tradition at Christmas in my family ( Mocha is my favorite 😀 ).
Vanilla Cake with a Tutti-Frutti Cherry and Peach Filling, Frosted with a Vanilla Buttercream and decorated with a Vanilla-Coconut Bark.
Another day…another cake! Village Sweets was at it again, this time our “Theme” cake was inspired for a skateboarder, and his favorite color is cherry red, so a cherry red skateboard it was going to be. After figuring out how we wanted the design to look, it was time to make sure the design would hold up. Our skateboard has a ramp, cool wheels and a great design for Gab. An all edible Red Velvet Skateboard cake with Vanilla Butter-cream frosting, covered in a cherry red fondant. HaPpY BiRtHdAy GAB! Hope you love your cake!!
Recently I just completed making a Volkswagon Bus Cake Hippie Style. This bus was so much fun to make! The cake, a Red Velvet with 4 layers of delicious Cream Cheese Frosting for the inside, for the outside a not too sweet Vanilla Butter-cream, which is covered in a tinted Fondant to mimic the 70’s style bus. Adding all the colorful flowers, the radical surfboard and the candy windows make this a real grooooovy cake. Peace out man!
Today was a special occaision and special days mean something we can all treat ourselves to in the dessert department Birthday style. I saw this recipe not long ago and I thought it was “Fantabulous”. I luvvvvvvv Ombre anything, clothes, handbags, make-up, shoes and now to my delight CAKES!! So…. after seeing this deliciously looking “Pink Ombre Swirl Cake” recipe on http://glorioustreats.blogspot.ca
I just had to try it myself. I am no pro baker, but I do like a challenge. Here is a pic of her wonderful cake in Pink (I luv pink too, and it really looks good on me, hehehe). Isn’t it gorgeous, she is quite the master. I love how each shade swirls into the other from darker to lighter. (Check the blog out, she has wonderful and interesting things).
And here is my mine…
This was so much fun to make, took a bit of time to figure the colour combination, but hey not too bad for a first attempt.
