Bon Voyage Cake

Well Folks, I am branching out. What this means is that I am starting to bake "bigger" cakes. This was my first attempt since last Mother's Day. . .that's a long time of baking cupcakes! What got me going on the traditional cake kick was last week I was approached to bake a wedding cake! It may sound like a daunting task but I think I will be ready as long as I bake a cake a week. Today, I decided to whip up this cake; the flavor is lemon with lemon curd buttercream (one of the flavors that I am making for my wedding cake order). I am going to pat my back for this cake. Yes, the fondant is not 100% perfect, but to be honest I did not have enough to cover this entire cake! That's why there is some folding/bunching action going. Regardless, I truly hope that Christina loves her bon voyage cake.

I will post pictures of a slice tomorrow.

Kahlua Chocolate Kŭp’kāks

A perfect Mother's day gift! Kahlua chocolate cake with vanilla bean cream cheese frosting and a ton of Belgium chocolate jimmy's. These were made for Mother's day and were packaged with red velvet. A perfect combination!

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mom's and Mothers-to-be. Today is your day to relax and be pampered!

Tiramisu Kŭp’kāks

This is the second time I have made tiramisu cupcakes, and can I tell you they are so amazing! The tiramisu cream this time around was thinner than before so I had to add cool whip just so it would stay on the delicious cake. I made them for Jim's co-worker, Trang, who had ordered these and red velvet for her cousins birthday. I really hope that they enjoyed the espresso soaked Kahlua chocolate cake with the light and airy tiramisu cream.
