Get well soon

hospital-bedI did this cake for an annual fundraising dinner and auction for our local hospital. Everything on it is edible — a combination of gumpaste, fondant, royal icing, buttercream and of course, cake! A bit of everything went into the details of this cake.
My favourite has to be the little dinner tray, complete with sliced turkey, peas and carrots, mashed potatoes with butter, a cup of coffee, a teeny muffin with icing and a banana. All from fondant.
I hear it garnered a $500 winning bid at auction, with the funds going to the hospital. I’m tickled pink!

Hail Caesar

caesar salad again.jpgYes, it’s a cake! I love doing faux food cakes and when I saw this on the internet I knew I had to give it a try. Especially since my boyfriend loves Caesar salad.
The romaine lettuce is made of wafer paper, the croutons from pound cake and the cheese is fondant. These toppers sat on top of a layered carrot cake, which was in the glass salad bowl. The lettuce was the trickiest to get right but after a few tries, I got the hang of it.
Happy birthday to Richard. What a fun, birthday surprise for him!

Best of luck

farewell-angelaOne of the gals at work has decided to move back out west and so we had a little get together last night to wish her well and say goodbye.
I brought dessert for us all to share: a chocolate cake covered with dark chocolate ganache (that photographed as black!) topped with lemon-buttercream roses.
Best wishes to Angela on her new adventures!
