Ok, I am only 2 weeks behind in posting now. I have a couple things I will be making next week. You see, I have been MAKING my weekly orders, just had not had time to post them. Now that I am caught up (at least though the start of April) I will be working on getting all caught up completely. TY all for your understanding.

Week 9

This was made for a physical trainer's birthday at a gym. The cake is a chocolate fudge and had espresso in as the water that was called for. The icing is a peanut butter/buttercream icing. This was different, I had to make a batch of cupcakes to have my neighbors taste test for me, you see, I can not stand the taste of coffee! OOPS!

The 'S' on the end of Carlos got a little close to the edge of the cake, this was only a 6 inch cake. It was however, 3 layers!

Week 8

I had a birthday cake request for a cake that incorporated hot wheels. This is a half sheet cake that I made from 4 9x13 inch cakes. I made 2 cakes green and 2 blue (the birthday boys favorite colors). I then leveled the cakes, sliced them in half, and layers them 4 high in alternating colors. I did not get a pic of the inside, but it still looks great!

Week 7

I have started practicing the Basket Weave. This was my very first attempt and I believe it came out pretty well. I also had the primroses I have made out of royal icing. They were a little tricky at first, but got the hang of it!

I also attempted the reverse shell on the top border.

Week 6

I know this is SUPER late. But life, as it always does, gets in the way at times. For St Patrick's Day, I had a couple requests for Baily's Irish Cream cakes. So I put some things together and came up with this:

The filling is a vanilla/irish cream and I also mixed in the liqueur into the frosting. I used Wiltons Scroll impressions  to help with the scroll work. I freehand wrote the wordings. Everyone loved it! There was not a crumb left!!

Week 5

This week I made a Bailey's Irish Cream cake for St Patty's Day. It was a white scratch cake with some Bailey's brushed on the tops, I made a Bailey's vanilla pudding filling and even added some Bailey's to the Buttercream icing. I piped some scrolls and vines in green and a shamrock on the top. Here is the photo

I really enjoyed making this cake. I hope my friend enjoys it too!
