Hunting/Fishing Birthday Cake

I really got to test out my skills with the last cake of the week... This is a vanilla cake with lemon filling, and decorated in fondant.

On the sides (which I unfortunately didn't get a picture of) was butter cream camo pattern. On the top, the fish, fish hook and Browning Buck are all buttercream and done via frozen buttercream transfers. With all of this, I now know why I mostly prefer to do fondant!! But I do appreciate the opportunity to learn more piping and frosting skills any day~

The Browning Buck


Next on the list this week was a golf themed birthday cake for a guy that worked with my hubby during the summer between his senior year in high school and starting college. He came back for the weekend, and his mom wanted to make sure he had a good birthday cake!

This is a marble cake with butter cream frosting. Decorated in butter cream, with accents in fondant.

MMMMM.... cake balls!

I've really got to come up with a different name for'em, but I made more cakeballs this week too... I had lots of frozen leftover cake from various projects over the last few weeks, and decided I needed the freezer space for something a little more healthy... like garden veggies.

So off I went! I also had peanut butter cream cheese frosting left over too (which was tinted blue) and lots of chocolate and butterscotch chips to coat everything in. I'm pretty sure that with the amount of cake that I had, there were well over 8 dozen of the yummy little things.

And of course that night, I had to have taste testers!! Since the chocolate chips melt a WHOLE LOT faster than almond bark, it got a little messy...

Lemon and Raspberry Cupcakes

To go along with the raspberry theme already in progress, I had an order for lemon cupcakes with raspberry filling and frosting. 2 dozen of the beauties went to the hospital to help celebrate whe newest RHIT at CHC. Congrats Tab!

Green N Yellow Birthday Cake

Lately I've been making quite a few birthday cakes... and do test me, they've all pretty much been buttercreme and not fondant cakes. I guess I need to eventually learn the art of making buttercream do what I want it to do, so I won't complain too much.

This is a 2 layer vanilla cake with raspberry filling and buttercream frosting. Lime green and lemon yellow borders, decoration and inscription.
