Rainbow Cake Pop Treats 

Everyone immediately wanted one as soon as I put these on the table. It was a good thing I only put a few of them out for the lunch gathering for my family reunion. Otherwise, there would have been none left for the big dinner gathering. I am just glad everyone enjoyed them.


2nd Birthday Cake

A year ago I was asked to make Brenton’s 1st Birthday cake. Although I prefer baking cupcakes, I made a 4 inch cake for baby Brenton. A couple days ago I was asked to make his 2nd year birthday cake. Yeah, I still prefer making cupcakes but I made the cake anyway. Both cakes are red velvet.

Today I baked this one. 

1 years ago I baked this one.

Layer Red Velvet Cake with cream cheese frosting

I am always looking for different recipes and ideas for red velvet cake. I saw a similar cake on a Pin in Pinterest and thought I would give it a try with my recipe. Well since this was an experiment, I decided to substitute the Hershey’s cocoa with Dutch chocolate. It taste okay but I can tell the difference. I will stick to my Hershey’s next time.  I bake a 9×13 cake then cut the cake into 3 equal pieces. That was a guess that was a little off so I trimmed them down a bit. My cake rose nicely but this obviously wasn’t a good thing because when I stacked the cakes they were very high and leaned a bit.  I came so close to tossing it out but decided to complete the cake. It’s not my best work but here it is.

Cake Ball Pop Bouquet

I had not planned to make cake pops part of my baking menu. However, I received a request from a colleague to make a cake ball center piece for a baby shower. I made this with the colors she requested which were aqua, chocolate, yellow and orange. I found a basketball vase which my husband received with a edible arrangement bouquet I had given him for Father’s Day. These cake ball pops are more labor intensive than cake balls. I am very pleased with how the arrangement came together and will make cake pops again if asked.
