Off to Dallas

So i'm off to Dallas today for a work conference which means no baking and no blog post. Hopefully i can find some cool bakeries within the Dallas area and take some time to enjoy a cupcake or two. We'll see if i have time to even do that during the week.

I hope everyone enjoys there week and when i come back i'll be starting a couple of baked surprises for a couple of girls in the office!

But for now i must go pack!

Gorgeous Roses

This cake was done for an Anniversary Party. Bottom layer was lemon cake with fruit filling. The top layer was chocolate cake with chocolate ganache, both covered with vanilla buttercream and white fondant. All Roses and rose petals are made out of fondant.

*Now as much as this cake is beautiful, it was kind of a pain. My house was very humid the day i was doing the fondant and it was not co-operating properly. It was cracking everywhere, it had bubbles everwhere. I was so disappointed i did not want to deliver this cake. I made it look as decent as possible but in the end i was not happy with it. I can say though that my Roses turned out beautifully!*

Pasta as a cake????

This cake was designed by my sister for her Anniversary "family dinner". What she didn't know is that we were throwing them a surprise 5th Year Anniversary! The cake was a fun project and i'm glad it came out as well as it did.

The concept was her husband Shane loves Pasta and she is trying to save him by pulling him out of the cake. I put nibs and sweet tarts as that is there favorite treat.

Marbled Pound cake w/ chocolate ganache icing and covered in Fondant.
*Everything is edible on this cake.*
