Brunching and Puppy Cakes

Posted by jenmeeko at 9:34 PM 0 comments
My boyfriend James' mom and stepdad, Patty and Larry, have almost the same birthday, so we hosted a joint birthday party for them! It was a brunch, but no brunch is complete without lots of cake and cake balls, right? I made a puppy-themed cake for them decorated with handmade gum paste doggies to match their real-life doggies, Lucy and Wesley. (I included the inspiration photo. I think they turned out pretty cute!) The cakes were lemon (top) and carrot (bottom), and cake balls were white chocolate cake with milk chocolate coating. I have it on good authority that no cake balls went to waste thanks to James' adorable niece, Addi! She may be a cake ball addict! I added a pic of the full sweets table with some of my decor also!

60th Anniversary Cake

My coworkers are the best! Auden asked me to make a 60th Anniversary cake for his in-laws. This one was designed to match both the party invitations and a similar cake they found online. I made the vine design by hand in fondant, and the flowers on top are also handmade in gum paste. I really liked the pop of the bottom tier with the pink top tier.

Baby Shower Cake

Ok, I know, first update in ageeees! I'll try to do better now that life has settled down a little.

This one dates back to last October! I was so excited to make this cake for my coworker Savanna who hosted a baby shower for her friend who was having a little boy. The cake was lined with chocolate-covered strawberries, all in colors to match the shower theme. Loved it!
