A Weekend of Cakes!

This was a very busy weekend for Mom and I. We, Treasured Cakes, were asked to make two completely different cakes for two different customers and we also had to make a delivery for Creme de la Creme.

For our first cake, we were to make an “Over the Hill” cake for a 50th birthday. We weren’t given many specifics other than to make it a white cake with chocolate frosting. We decided to do a cake carved into the shape of a coffin, covered in chocolate buttercream and then covered in black marshmallow fondant. This was a challenge for us, but was tons of fun to make. We’re getting better at using the marshmallow fondant and that always makes things easier. The customer loved it and couldn’t wait for her husband to see it 🙂

Our second cake was for a baby shower. We were given a few more specifics for this one. She wanted marble cake with white buttercream and it needed to look like a baby block that she had sent us a picture of. We had a few problems with the softness of the cake because it kept crumbling, but we fixed that and it turned out really cute. The baby’s name is Edon so instead of A,B,C,D being on the sides, we did his name. When the customer saw it she loved how cute it was!

Our delivery for Creme de la Creme went extremely well. We were delivering a 3 tier wedding cake to a gorgeous house for a wedding. This was iced and decorated by Connie.  Mom went with me and I’m really glad she did because we couldn’t have put that cake in my car without it tilting and probably falling. Once we got it there we put it on it’s designated table and began with the touch-ups. We smoothed out a few little snags, covered it in edible glitter, surrounded it with the appointed feather boas and then attached the bow. This cake was gorgeous and was commented on by all of the caterers at the site.
