I delivered the last of my cake orders this afternoon.
Sure, it's a lot of work, the planning, the mixing, baking and decorating.
But there's something I just love about it. And when the cake is eaten and the kitchen is clean, I am bereft.
Well, anyways, here is the cake I made for our church's 3rd anniversary.
All from scratch, the bottom 11x15 cake is toothsome vanilla, and the top 9x13 is moist chocolate.
All filled and frosted with true buttercream. Just butter, lot's of it, and confectioners sugar : )
The technique I used to make the picture (which is our church logo) is called a 'Frozen buttercream transfer'. It really made the idea I had for the cake possible.
These little cupcakes were for a friends friend. She requested Red Velvet cupcakes with some kind of Christian/biblical decoration. Crosses seemed to fit that description. : )
I had never made red velvet before, so I was excited for the opportunity. The recipe I found turned out to be fabulous!
That cream cheese icing is to die for! And I dusted the crosses with luster dust, to make them sparkle. Theologically sound? I don't know. But it's pretty!
So, now I guess I'll get to knitting.
