I was asked to bake a 6 inch cake for the top of a cupcake tower. I decided to really jazz it up by making it a flower cake. The flowers are all hand made with butter cream. I added strawberry purée to the butter cream for added flavor. The cake is a strawberry cake. I cut 2 cupcakes in half and placed them on top of the cake to make the dome shape. The cupcakes are German Chocolate and key lime topped with matching hand made buttercream flowers.
Although I try not to make cakes, I sometimes give in when asked nicely. This is a three layer Key Lime cake. It has graham cracker crumbs on the bottom and frosted with key lime flavored buttercream. The decorations are made using candy molds.
The mermaid theme is popular this year. This is my third opportunity to decorate with the mermaid theme. The cake is red velvet with cream cheese frosting and the cupcakes are vanilla with butter cream frosting.
I really wanted to show off my photo light box which my husband bought me but hadn’t baked anything to use it. The box has multiple light settings and various color backgrounds. I chose green for these gift boxes. The box allows me to take very professional looking pictures. This is a start but stay tuned for more beautiful pictures.
