Busy, busy!!

Saturday, February 7th, 2009

Wow!  What a busy 24 hours!  I did three cakes for Saturday - no small feat with a day job.  Cake #1 was for my sweet little neighbor, a lovely little girl having her third birthday party.  She requested a white cake with pink icing… see below for the results!  It’s a sour cream white cake with pink buttercream filling and pink fondant.  The little white flowers are fondant with a touch of royal icing.

Cake #2 was another birthday cake for a little lady, this one turning eight today.  She has a love for all things crafty and requested a painter-inspired cake.  This cake was vanilla with chocolate buttercream filling and vanilla fondant.  The fondant was handpainted to look like watercolor, and there are a handmade fondant painter’s palette (with royal icing paint) and a few paintbrushes as accents.  Here it is:

Cake #3 was a quick little cake for my lovely neighbor Courtney… a fun little buttercream.  It’s a sour cream chocolate cake with peanut butter and Reese’s Cup filling, iced with chocolate and vanilla buttercream. 

Now I’m getting prepped for the upcoming Capitol Confectioners Club competition at the end of the month… should be fun!
