Thank you volunteers

xMuseum volunteer2010Our local museum, the Glengarry Pioneer Museum was hosting its annual “thank you” barbecue for all its volunteers and I was asked to make a cake for the occasion. I figured I’d immortalize the Star Inn, one of the main features of the museum, in buttercream. I liked the sepia-tone look of the brown icing on the white background. The cake was gobbled up in no time.

Bar mitzvah zebra

 A high school friend that I hadn’t seen in a what seemed like a million years, found me on Facebook and asked if I could make her son’s bar mitzvah cake. The luncheon was done in a black and white theme and the bar mitzvah boy, Jonah just loved zebras. I jumped at the chance. Best of all? The cake inside was chocolate and white zebra stripes, a trick I found on the internet. And it worked like a charm!
