I've been enjoying some creative time via cake making lately. It started some time this summer and it's been growing since then. It's been fun to plan a cake around someones likes...
This one was for my nephew Jack who turns one this week. He loves a bath.
I've learned that a series of simple tricks often makes for a good result. Anyone can make a beautiful cake...just break it down to simple steps.
This one was for my brother in law Eric, who like us, loves his Norwegian heritage. This one was chocolate, raspberry filled with coffee frosting, covered in marzipan. I wasn't thrilled with my marzipan cake coverage so I made a quilted pattern to cover my mistakes.
The little viking was my favorite...his tiny little flag was too cute!
The best part is that I've managed to make a cake that's cute AND tastes good too!
And this one was for my niece, Casey who turns 4 soon.
I'm told that this is a good representation of a "Bubble Guppies" cake. I wouldn't know, I've never seen the show but she loved it and that's all I cared about. :)
It's been fun learning something new...next up is an ugly sweater cake for my sister in law...
