SuperMom Cake

Hi guys!  I'm still playing catch up with my posts so please bear with me. Last month I made a 30th Birthday "Supermom" Cake.  This cake was made for Marisa,  who's been blessed with twin boys while also juggling a busy career.  If that doesn't qualify for supermom then I don't know what does!  I truly enjoyed making this cake, this was a complete challenge for me since I rarely incorporate figure modeling to my cakes, but I had so much fun and it made me think that I should definitely do it more often.  All elements on this cake are edible and made with sugar paste. This cake also shows that you don't need a tiered cake to make a statement, a simple round cake with fun elements will make such a big difference.  
Thank you to Debbie, Marisa's mom for letting me make this really fun cake project.

Tip: If you're thinking of doing figure modeling please allow extra time for them to dry, especially in these hot summer days where humidity is a cake decorator's number one enemy.

Welcome to the World Little Girl!

I feel like I haven't updated you guys with my projects here for a while, and now I'm trying to play catch up.  It's not that I gave up my cake life entirely (that will never happen),   it's just that I have been incredibly busy this past month.  From transitioning to a new job, which I'm very excited about,  to just making cakes, feeding my fish and oh not to mention being a wife, life has been a little bit hectic and at the same time exciting.  One of the few cakes I did recently was dedicated to my friend, Eileen's baby girl Eva Mary.  I decided to go classic on this one and used butter cream instead of fondant.  When it comes to the design, I always like a clean and simple look on my cakes. Don't get me wrong, I love intricate details but for me there is always something pleasing and charming with a cake design that has no frills.  I know little Eva can't eat it yet but I hope her mom and dad enjoyed it!  Congratulations Eileen & Rob on your beautiful little girl, God bless your family always.
