Some of my favorite cake decorators!

This week is a crazy week as i'm at work for 3 days and then on vacation, so i thought i'd pay omage to some of my favorite cake decorators. There are a lot as i think each person brings something original to there cakes or cookies. Also on a side note i am one blog away from reaching my 100th Blog! I think next week when i come back i'll have to bake something and celebrate my 100th Blog!

In no particular order!

Summer!

It's sad knowing that summer is more than halfway done. What has happened to the time, 2010 is more than halfway done. We've done a lot this summer which is good since last year's summer kind of sucked since the weather was kind of crappy. I won't have any baked goods this week as the hubby and i go on vacation on Thursday to Monday. A couples weekend in Boston. Hopefully i can find some good bakeries and taste some good baked goods within Boston. I should probably do my research before i head down there!

I'm also on Twitter if you feel so inclined to follow me. I'll probably be posting my adventure through twitter on the weekend. http://twitter.com/softgreenside

Brown, Blue and Animals

This was for another baby cake order! The expectant mother was expecting a cute little baby boy! This is another favorite among a number of people i know. Chocolate cake w/ chocolate ganache and covered in chocolate fondant. All accents are made from fondant. I also love polka dots so i especially love this cake the pink one with the butterflies.

Here is the inspiration for the cake.

Pink, Brown and Butterflies

This cake was for a baby shower. The expectant mother is expecting a precious baby girl. I was asked to make the cake full on chocolate. Chocolate cake, chocolate ganache icing with chocolate fondant. All accents are made out of fondant. I have yet to learn how to color on fondant but i think i did pretty well.

I'm still alive!

Sorry everyone for the lack of posts. I am still alive, i was just on vacation this past week in Morgantown, West Virginia! What a great vacation and so relaxing, exactly what i needed. We stayed at Lakeside Resort which for the guys was a golfing resort. The 4 guys played 5 rounds of golf during the week so they were happy. Us ladies with the kids, hung out by the pool and even did some shopping. Fun was had by all and i'd even go back! Hopefully i can get some time to post two new cakes from a week ago!

Enjoy your week everyone!
