Caramel Apple

Posted by Steph on Oct 3, 2013 in 3D Cakes, My Cakes, Novelty

Well with this October cake, Fall is officially here! 🙂  I have to give credit where credit is due for the inspiration for this cake – one of my favorite magazines – Food Network.   They featured this awesome cake in their most recent issue of the magazine, but you can see the instructions online on their website.   While I didn’t follow their cake/icing suggestions, I did follow their basic construction directions and had great success.  I would rate this as a pretty easy project, provided you have played around a little with making a cake before.  Overall I found it went together pretty fast – I spent much of my time waiting for the freezer parts for it to firm up.  But I kept busy during that time by baking some spice cake cupcakes and whipping up some cream cheese icing for those. 😉  I’d say that’s a good use of free time!

I lack 9″ pans so I used four 8″ round cakes for this.  The caramel square amount is very accurate. This was certainly a fun cake to make. 🙂

Happy Fall!

They Love Cupcakes

Posted by on Sep 25, 2012 in Cupcakes, My Cakes

I’ve made lots of cakes for my husband’s work over the past few years, but cupcakes always seem to go over well.  I think it is in part because of the variety of flavors I can do.  I must say, it is fun to create these delicious cupcakes ~ almost even more than a decorated one.  I’m guessing that is because I’m a sucker for a delicious dessert!  So for September I did cupcakes again.  I brought back an old favorite (Peanut Butter/Chocolate ~ which always goes over well) and brought in 2 new ones!

Apples in the Basket

Posted by on Nov 20, 2009 in 3D Cakes, Gumpaste Figures & Flowers, Holiday, My Cakes

Here is the Nov cake for DH’s work.   This is a 10″ round cake with chocolate buttercream and a 6″ round, 3 layer cake on top, iced in chocolate buttercream and fondant strips on the outside to make a “basket”.  All of the leaves, apples and acorns are fondant.  Happy Fall!
