In Canada, we’ve already celebrated Thanksgiving. It’s your turn America!
I made this a few years back for a Thanksgiving celebration with family. I thought a few peanut butter cup turkeys — adorned with candy corn — would give you a giggle. Enjoy!
I did this chocolate nurse’s scrubs cake for a fundraiser auction for our local hospital. The syringe and bandages were fondant; the stethoscope and scissors were gumpaste.
I heard that it got a good penny at auction and that the buyer served it right at the fundraiser. Terrific!
Last night, this cake I made was auctioned off as part of a huge fundraiser for our local hospital. I thought a cake based on the classic board game Operation would go along with the theme of a hospital fundraiser. The cake was huge! A carrot cake that could feed 40 people.
I heard it got a good price at auction and was purchased by a doctor who took it back with her to the hospital the next day and shared it with hospital staff. Win win!
It seems that the trend in the cake-making world is the so-called “naked cake,” meaning that the sides are not iced and the layers are exposed. I thought this would be a perfect mash up with a cake for a pair of birthday boys who are also cat lovers. Fondant kitties jumping in and out of chocolate icing. Kinda fun.
At a small gathering the other night, Sue was feted for all her years of writing for our local newspaper, The Glengarry News. She’s putting down her pen after 30 or so years. Sue will be missed.
.Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night painted with buttercream icing. This cake was for a birthday celebration of a former art history professor at McGill University. When he opened the box, apparently he said, “She nailed it!” My art history teacher would be so proud.
