Yesterday (the 29th) was my brother in law's birthday, and my sister hired us to make a cake for him. She wanted a chocolate cake with mocha mousse (with extra espresso), covered in brown fondant with leaves...something outdoorsy. So that's what we made for her. I had leftover batter, so I made some cupcakes, and filled those with the mocha mousse. John loved the cake...yay!!

We had a lot this weekend, and now it's all done and I'm off to Washington DC for the week. We had 2 today, and the first was for my friends sons 1st birthday party, it was a construction theme. The cake is chocolate with bavarian cream filling. The second cake was for my mother in laws birthday today. The bottom tier was chocolate with strawberry filling and the top was dairy free yellow cake. Both were iced with vanilla buttercream and topped with homemade marshmallow fondant.

My next door neighbor is due to have a baby August 12th, and I got the opportunity to make her cake, cupcakes, and cookie favors for the shower. She doesn't like pastels, but instead she likes really bright colors. Each table had a different theme color, and the cookies matched their tables. It was all very cute, and the colors on the cake and cupcakes coincided with the theme colors. We did a 3 tier cake and cupcakes for everyone. The guests ate the cupcakes, and Whitney was able to take the cake home. They're saving the top tier to eat when Katarina comes to celebrate her birthday. The cake and the cupcakes were both Buttermilk Vanilla cake with Strawberry filling and Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

We made a cake today for a girl that I went to high school with. She wanted a small cake, just for her and her husband to cut, and then a top to save for next year. So this is an 8" and a 6" cake...totally cute. The bottom tier is chocolate cake with fresh strawberry and the top tier is banana chocolate chip cake with chocolate mousse, and both cakes are frosted with our vanilla buttercream. Lindsey asked for polka dots on her cake in different shades of blues, and then some splashes of pink. I really hope they like how their cake turned out! Congratulations on your wedding, Pete and Lindsey!!

We made a cake for a client's sons birthday party. He hand makes guitars that are really nice, so I tried to make this look as much like the one he has for sale on Craigslist. I'm pleased with how this cake turned out, and I hope that he liked it too. It's Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Mousse Filling, and Vanilla Buttercream, and all the decorations are made with marshmallow fondant.

Matthew and I drove down to Southern California this week for a clients' wedding. We had never met Paul and Alicia before, but we were honored to be able to make their cake for them. Their cake was 4 tiers, with a 6" Cake topper, so it was pretty massive. The bottom tier was vanilla cake with mocha mousse filling, second tier was chocolate cake with strawberry filling, third tier was vanilla cake with raspberry filling, and the top tier was chocolate cake with strawberry filling. The table that the cake was on was not even, so it made the cake lean a little with the weight of the strawberries, but all in all, I'm very pleased with the final product! Thanks for asking us to make your cake, Alicia and Paul! Congratulations, and may God truly bless your marriage!!
