Don's "Couch Tater"

He doesn't really wear a mask, I was being discreet.

The cake was a 4-layer vanilla chocolate with chocolate chip mousse filling with white chocolate ganache.  I then covered it with chocolate fondant to make a microsuede couch. Doug is an Oregon Ducks alumni, so I added a few collegiate pieces to personalize his cake a bit more.

It was ordered by a co-workers friend for her husband. She told me all the elements she wanted on the design and I asked for a picture of the couch, dog, husband and cat.  I expected a few different photos and what she sent me was all inclusive. This is the photo they sent minus the mask.


Doug Crusin' to the Coast

From my best customers at work, this one was ordered for my co-worker's Corvette crazy husband. I loved carving the road and creating the trees for the this cake.

The entire cake is chocolate with caramel syrup and a chocolate mousse filling. All the decor is made from fondant except for all the cars. The sand is white cake pulsed in the food processor mixed with raw brown sugar.  In case you couldn't tell the corvette is doing a donut in the sand and the police are coming around the corner I wonder who their after?

Patty Cake: Under the Sea

This darling cake was made for Katie's Aunt Patty. She wanted something beachy, serene and elegant "Like my aunt" she said.  She found one similiar on Pinterest and we added a cute crab to personalize it a bit.

This cake is a 3 layer cookies and cream cake with real cream and crushed chocolate cookie mousse filling. The cake was crumb-coated with vanilla buttercream and all the edible decor was molded or hand-sculpted from vanilla fondant. My favorite element of this cake is the fondant waves.

Daisy Gail


Finally I get to make a daisy cake, it turned out pretty. Katie bought this one for her Mom who loves daisies. I loved it so much I made a similar for my own Mom whose birthday is today.
The cake is a 3 layer Chai Spice layer cake with vanilla cheesecake filling with vanilla buttercream frosting. The daisies and stems, and leaves were all hand-molded from fondant. Everything is edible on the cake, I hope Gail likes it as much as Katie does.
