Noah’s Ark

Posted on

A co-worker of mine was about to become a first time grandmom. How exciting is that!?! She wanted a cake that was as special as her first grandchild. They wanted the baby to be a surprise, so they didn’t know the gender. I was asked to make a Noah’s Ark themed cake to match the crib sheets! This was a blast making all of the animals, it was also a HEAVY cake! I had to deliver in 2 pieces and set up on location. The cake itself was chocolate with Oreo buttercream icing/filling…Yummy!!

Sadly, I cannot flip these either 😦


Hubby’s Birthday and Cupcakes!

Posted on

I’m going to kill 2 birds with one stone with this post. Because neither one is a spectacular looking cake, but they are spectacular tasting!
I always try to make my family what ever kind of cake they want for their birthdays. This year, after a few drinks hubby decided to try to throw me for a loop. Unbeknownst to him, I had my handy dandy phone out, taking notes! He had said he wanted my homemade Hershey cake (which IS to die for!) But then he mentioned chocolate ganache, topped with homemade chocolate icing, with chocolate jimmies (yes Jimmies, not sprinkles!!) with one (yes, I said one) green jimmie in the middle. Like I said he thought he was going to throw me for a loop! Nah, not this chick! Well, Sunday is his birthday, as well as father’s day, oh yeah and the 17th  (this Friday) is our anniversary. (Wow that’s alot!) Sooo, I’ve made his well described cake, to the “t”. This cake has to travel to Maryland, so we can celebrate with his family. I cannot wait to taste it!

And now for the second bird! (remember 2 birds, one stone)
My co-workers and I are throwing my boss a small bridal shower (she’s getting married next week!) I decided to make cupcakes! These are also filled with ganache, topped with a meringue. Oh my goodness, they are heaven! (we had one tonight to celebrate hubby’s b-day, before his son leaves) I made fondant circles, and airbrushed one letter per cupcake to make~~ Kristen ~N~ Pete  ~~The letters make a perfect dozen!
Of course I forgot to bring my camera to the party. But Tim’s phone takes damn good pictures!
Thanks Tim!!!
