A 25th Wedding Anniversary

I made cupcakes for a clients 25th wedding anniversary party today.  They were Triple chocolate and vanilla velvet with a vanilla velvet with raspberry filling cutting cake.  The cupcakes had silver edible glitter on them, but all in all, we kept everything fairly simple.

Janine and Ken's Wedding

We delivered a cake to Los Gatos this morning (that was a long delivery) for the wedding of a good friend of ours. Janine and Ken's wedding was lovely, despite the heat, and we had a wonderful time. I'm very pleased with how their cake turned out, possibly one of my favorite wedding cakes we've done so far. The bottom tier was Chocolate fudge cake with vanilla cream bavarian cream filling, middle tier was mocha fudge cake with mocha mousse filling, and the top tier was vanilla velvet cake with strawberry filling all frosted with vanilla buttercream. All the flowers are handmade gerbera daisies. Congratulations Ken and Janine Tinsley, we're very happy for you!!

it's been a while

From the blog readers point of view, it may seem like I haven't had any orders for a while, but I've just been so busy with work, teaching, and orders that I haven't had a chance to post anything (and I was on vacation too).  We've had a lot of kids cakes these past weeks and they've all been quite cute.  I'm just going to put this out there...the Mickey Mouse cake was made for my nephew and I was at my parents house when I made it which means that I didn't have any of my normal supplies.  Obviously it wasn't the best cake I've made, but it was still quite cute!!
