Polka Dot Birthday Cake 1

Here’s the latest cake - an 11th-birthday cake for a daughter of one of my colleagues… I actually made two versions of this cake (long story including a moment of panic and not much sleep that night…) - one iced in fondant, and one iced buttercream. The cake is sour cream vanilla with vanilla buttercream filling. It’s decorated in loads of little gumpaste dots to match the party invitations.

This Saturday marked the final performance of my boyfriend P.J.’s band, Beta Valentine…  To celebrate the last performance together at the Club De Ville in Austin, I made a Beta Valentine-themed cake to take to the show.  At P.J.’s request, I made a rich lemon cake with cream cheese filling… It’s iced in vanilla fondant (gray for the boys…) and the band logo is also vanilla fondant.  I have to give credit to P.J. for the logo - he painstakingly cut out the logo elements while we were scrambling to finish things up pre-show.  :)   Also, the beautiful cupcakes were made by another member of the Beta Valentine family - Chris’ wife Jennifer.  Yum!
