It seems like all I have been doing lately is canning and making cakes! Farmer’s market is off to a great start, so there are a lot of flavors that I am either refilling or making for the first time this season. I have bought more sugar in the past three weeks than I have in the past 8 months combined! This is also one of the ‘seasons’ for cakes– graduation cakes, wedding cakes, etc etc.
I have done quite a few just regular sheet cakes with Happy Birthday or Congratulations on them, but I have done a few fun ones recently that I thought I’d share.
This was a really fun birthday cake for a cutie named Kamdyn. It was really fun to replicate! I used my airbrush machine, which I LOVE to do. His parents were making a fun superman hand out of fondant that they were going to put on it, too, but I didn’t get a photo.
This was a fun graduation cake for one of the girls here in town. She wanted a half white, half chocolate cake, with both her high school mascot and the mascot of the college she is going to. I printed the mascots off and ‘laminated’ them with clear packing tape. That way the grease from the frosting won’t get onto the paper. I cut into the side of that wildcat and had to redo it…ooops!
This cake was for a little boy’s 5th birthday! It is half chocolate/half white, and it was inspired by this cake.
I am loving all of these fun cakes I have been asked to do! I am still learning new techniques, trying to improve how I do things, but I’m getting orders quite often, so apparently I’m doing something right ;-). Now I have FINALLY finished the cake dishes for the last time this weekend, so I am OUT!
