How lucky was I to have such gorgeous cake designs to work on this week?? I especially love how each client was so excited to see their cakes for the first time! They both made my day today. <3
This cake is for a lucky lady who's fiance really wanted to do something special for her birthday. I think he did a fantastic job. ;) It's a single layer 8" with a 6" with 3 layers, and a 4" with 2 layers. And you can never go wrong with strawberry. *drool*
The next cake is for a royal baby shower! Prince Eliah will certainly get the royal treatment today! Okay, so his mama will for sure when she gets to taste my Bananas Foster for the first time! Oooooohhhhh... I can taste it now. And we thought it couldn't get any better, but we did a brown sugar Swiss meringue buttercream with this one! It was so good, I nearly baked one for myself! Could you imagine my Saturday night, in bed with Bananas Foster? Haha! Oh, the visual. This is an 8" 3-layer and a 6" 3-layer buttercream cake with fondant details. Everything is handmade, hand painted, and the grid is even hand carved.
Have you ever seen the butter carving contests at the state fairs? The quilting technique reminded me of that, shaving it down one line a a time and refrigerating constantly. I think it turned out fantastic!
