My sister’s wedding cake! I spent months trying to figure out the wedding cake gift for my sister and her fiance. Since they both love the water and was having a lake-front wedding, this is what I came up with. They loved it! Everything on the cake was edible, including the shells and except the topper of course.
And the cupcake…..well because who doesn’t want a yellow cupcake with a chocolate peanut butter filling, topped with a caramel buttercream, and on top of that a mixture of peanuts and pretzels and drizzles of chocolate and caramel?
I visited the Puppet Theater for the first time. I’d heard about it like everyone else in West Liberty, but I’d never investigated it. I received a phone call on Thursday asking if I could make a cake or cupcakes for the two upcoming Dessert Theater and of COURSE I could! I ended up making a chocolate cupcake with a cherry filling. On top was a layer of ganache. I topped that with a Chocolate Cherry Swiss Buttercream. The ones I took on Friday night were topped with a little blue flower and the ones I took on Saturday night was topped with a chocolate cherry truffle.
I was asked to make a dessert for the West Branch Dessert Auction. I decided on a cake and a dozen cupcakes. I donated a Neapolitan Rose cake, top layer was chocolate, the middle vanilla and the bottom was strawberry. I decorated it with buttercream roses, matching the inside layers I made a duplicate for a friend’s birthday cake so I was able to take a photo of the inside. I have to admit, it was delicious.
I made a full sized hat for a friend whose sister was a Red Hat Lady. It was a lot of fun and quite cute, unfortunately none of the photos turned out. Since I had left over f0ndant I decided to try a different way of making a hat. I made this little two serving hat, which would translate into a bigger hat if needed. I found this one was cuter than making a thin cake into the brim and I could put waves into the brim.
