Spring Flowers

Posted by Steph on Apr 27, 2013 in Birthday, Gumpaste Figures & Flowers, My Cakes

We’ve been (im)patiently waiting for spring to appear here.  I’m ready for the cold weather to be done and the warm to stay.  I’m ready for spring flowers!!  So it was fun to work on a spring-y cake like this.  This is a 12″ round cake with lots of fondant/gumpaste flowers – and cupcakes too! 🙂

Easter Peep

Posted by Steph on Apr 27, 2013 in 3D Cakes, Holiday, My Cakes, Novelty

This cake was made for April’s work birthday party @ my husband’s job.  I had seen the idea in a Food Network magazine and thought it looked fun.  The peep itself is constructed out of a 9×13 plus two cakes baked in bowls.  I needed a few more servings, so I put the whole thing on another 9×13 cake.

I didn’t have the best time with the tail portion.  Once it was frosted, it really pulled on the wooden skewer supports that the instructions said to use.  It ended up cracking a little, but not horribly.  In looking at real peeps, I noticed that they don’t really have a pronounced tail like the FN cake.  I think if I did this one again, I would just sculpt a small peak of a tail with frosting at the back.  The beak (also a triangle of cake skewered onto the head cake) stayed on well, though, as you can imagine, its kind of a challenge to ice that nicely.

But it turned out cute in the end.  The peep is covered in yellow colored sugar.  The eyes are chocolate melting wafers.

Spring Cupcakes

Posted by on Apr 21, 2011 in Cupcakes, Holiday, My Cakes

Yesterday’s project:  April birthday cake for my husband’s work.  I had other plans initially but in the end I decided to go with cupcakes – 6 dozen of them!  I hadn’t done them in awhile and I had a new recipe for a cheesecake filling I wanted to try out.

On the menu this month…

Carrot Cake Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Icing
The carrots are made with modeling chocolate.  Yum!

Chocolate Cupcakes with Cheesecake Filling
The cheesecake filling is so easy.  You can check out the recipe for it here.  The “eggs” on top are the mini robin’s eggs (whoppers).  I love these cupcakes!

Lemon Cupcakes
Lemon cake, buttercream icing piped like a flower.  Spring!

And finally a group photo…
