This is a cake that I made for a baby shower last night. It is a two tiered square fondant cake. The bottom tier is a vanilla rum cake with a butter cream filling. The top-tier is red velvet cake with chocolate filling. This is one of the few times I have made a vanilla rum cake. It came out very moist and delicious. I made a glaze to put on the cake and it really accented the cake well.
The colors of the shower were navy and white with accents of yellow and orange. I colored the fondant to coordinate with the shower. It was a more clean, simple and modern feel rather than the traditional shower cake.
I think I will be adding the rum cake to my cake choices more often. What do you think?
This is a barnyard themed birthday cake for Ava’s 2nd birthday. It consists of four tiers. The bottom tier is cow print with Ava painted in red. The flavor of this cake is chocolate cake with a chocolate fudge filling.
The next tier is a red painted gingham print with a red bow. This tier is lemon cake with a lemon curd filling. The next tier is covered with green fondant with a white picket fence. There are also sugar barn animals in-between the fencing. I also, added green buttercream around the edge to give it a grassy look. This tier is red velvet cake with a chocolate filling.
The top-tier is the barn. I used the Wilton house pan to create the shape of the barn. For this tier I baked a pound cake as you must have a sturdy cake for the house pan to keep the shape. I covered it with fondant and added the green grassy buttercream around the edges of the house. I also added the sugar chicken to the barn.
