Snowman vs. Penguin Cake

A while back I donated a cake to a charity auction for Karson's Kause and today was the day to pay up. This cake was for a set of twins' 16th birthday party. I love how it turned out & hope that the girls did too! It was white chocolate cake with raspberry buttercream, almond poppyseed cake with lemon curd buttercream and chocolate cake with cookies n' cream filling.

This is the kinda crap I do when no one is around to tell me how to do the cake

....and when I just use what I have in the freezer left over from old cakes. Pink & purple icing from Sawyer's birthday cake & a random spice cake leftover from who knows when? But it was quite yummy. So yummy in fact that the left over cake from the party is currently in my garbage can. (so I don't eat the entire thing, not because it's nasty.) Do you like the tender words of love? Yeah, so did they. That's how we roll. I love you Kierstin & Kirsten! Happy Birthdays!

Rick's Birthday Cake

I am taking some time off until the Spring wedding season rolls around to enjoy the holidays and have a break, but I did this small, simple birthday cake for a friend of ours. He really wanted a coca-cola cake, which is basically a Texas brownie, where you pour the frosting on while the thin layer of cake is still hot. It's a divine recipe, but not so great for making a layer cake out of. Actually I think I know how I'd do it better in the future, so I probably will add this to my list of favorite recipes. And yes, we caught it & crossed the "t" before delivering it, just not before taking pictures.
