Thank you volunteers, again

Volunteercake 2013Each year the Glengarry Pioneer Museum fetes its volunteers and I’ve made several cakes to honour these folks. This year I decorated the cake with giant sunflowers (with mini-oreo centres) and bluebirds flying with the “thank you” banner in their beaks. Sweet!

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!
