A guy at work loves grilled cheese sandwiches. His mum asked me to surprise him with a vanilla grilled cheese cake (with orange buttercream “cheese”) for his birthday. He just loved it…and was very surprised too! The marzipan olives on edible sticks were an added bonus!
I love peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. So why not a PB and J cake? This one is a vanilla cake filled with peanut butter icing (total yum!) and a layer of raspberry jelly. My brother loves it so much, he requests this cake every time I visit him.
I have a friend who is just crazy for salami sandwiches. His partner asked me to make him a cake that looked like a sandwich and French fries for his birthday. All done with vanilla cake, buttercream and fondant.
I just love the idea of a cake for spring that emulates the pattern of a bird’s egg. Blue buttercream with watered-down cocoa powder (watered-down with vodka, no less!) spattered on the sides just lends itself to a really graphically appealing cake. The little speckled candy-covered chocolate eggs are kinda fun too.
I made this cake for a friend’s daughter who turned Sweet 16 over the weekend. Apparently, she’s crazy for polka dots.
To celebrate spring, I made these woodland cupcakes including edible moss, mushrooms, pebbles and fiddleheads. Welcome spring!
This year’s offering to raise funds for the SPCA’s National Cupcake day included a dozen dog cupcakes and a dozen Grumpy Cat cupcakes. So much fun. And apparently, they went like hot cakes…or something like that.
