This was made for my sister’s birthday, we didn’t have a lot of people to feed so I went with a two-tier cake and just enough cupcakes to spell her name.
The cupcakes were Red Velvet with the same cream cheese SMB that I mentioned in the previous post. This cupcake was filled with White Chocolate Amaretto pudding.
I hand painted the tips of the circles with gold luster dust and lemon extract, the same was done for the flower on the top tier.
The bottom tier of the cake was made to look like the dress she was wearing. She loved the cake and matched the colours she was wearing for the big night.
I was asked at the last minute to make a Red Velvet birthday cake. The birthday girl’s favourite colours are black and red so I went with that.
The cake is filled with Cream Cheese Swiss Meringue Buttercream…this filling and frosting was to die for. I couldn’t get enough of it. I’ll post the steps in a later post for achieving success with this frosting.
Here are some pictures of the cake.
I really enjoyed making this cake and it’s one of my favourites to date.
I cut out small individual “rhinestone” and attached them to the flower part of the bow.
This Halloween cake was made for my office potluck. The bottom cake is vanilla with white chocolate ganache filling. The Cauldron is a vanilla with a basic vanilla frosting.
The bottom is an 8 inch, I used a 6 inch Pyrex bowl to make the Cauldron. I have to admit that this cake came together a lot quicker and easier than I thought it would. I’m not complaining though, I loved the process and it looked very much like how I envisioned it.
I’ll have to figure out how to get the rest of the pics added to this post and my phone is acting crazy and won’t allow me to upload the rest.
Here is the best picture I have.
