LV 2

Here was another request for my LV cake for a mother-in-law's birthday. This is a 6 in, red velvet cake with cream cheese. It is slightly different from the first one.

Elmo 1st Birthday Cake / Cupcakes

This was for my best friend's nephew's 1st birthday. It is red velvet cake/cupcakes with cream cheese buttercream. I made the Elmo a little on the chubby side, but it did match the celebrant. :) I also tried out my new cupcake stand.

Brown, pink, green birthday cake

This was an additional cake for my best friend's little cousin. This was a 4 alternating layers of chocolate cake, chocolate amaretto pound cake with chocolate amaretto buttercream. Im not too happy with this cake because it was thrown in the last minute. The bow didnt turn out too well either, but it was a good learning experience.

Adidas Cake

I had to feed 40 people at the party so I decided to add another cake. She loves adidas so I just put the Adidas symbol on a 8 in chocolate amaretto poundcake with chocolate amaretto buttercream. I was so tired after the end of this week. 6 cakes and 5 dz cupcakes in one week on top of my 2 jobs. Im proud of myself!

Purple Velvet Purple Purse

This was a suprise 60th birthday cake for my boss. She really loves the color purple, Coach purses, and cars (she just bought a new BMW). This was a 10 in long, 4 in high purple velvet cake with cream cheese frosting, purple buttercream, and chocolate amaretto buttercream. 5 layers!! It took a long 15 hours to make because of the amount of detail that went on this cake. Also the fact that I had to cookie cutter each "C" and glue it on.

Brown Swirl Birthday Cake

Just a very simple birthday cake for some people at KP BPK. This was a 8 in. round, chocolate amaretto poundcake with chocolate amaretto buttercream. I actually tried this swirl effect and it turned out nice.

LV cake

This was the most tedious cake I have ever made. This is an anniversary cake. I had to work with what I had at my house, so it is not the exact replica of LV. Im actually proud of this cake and I think it is the best one I have made so far. It is also my favorite recipe so far: chocolate amaretto pound cake with chocolate amaretto buttercream. Yummy!

Superman Key Cake

This cake was for an anniversary cake. All I knew was that her husband likes Superman and she wanted a heart shape cake. So, I altered it a little and came up with this cake and a saying.

This was a red velvet cake with cream cheese buttercream.

Purse Class

I took another class at Let Them Eat Cake today. This was the final product. I couldn't believe that it only took 2 quarter sheet cakes to produce this purse. Plus, it had wonderful fillings such as lemon curd, strawberry mouse, lemon buttercream. Yummy! The class was well worth it!

Brown and blue butterfly

This was a quick cake that I made for my work. I tried an expresso pound cake with Bailey's Irish Cream buttercream. It was a gourmet cake, I must say. You had to be a coffee lover to like the cake. I tried stenciling the royal icing on this one.
