May Pole Cake

This cake was made for a May Day celebration. The cake is a white sponge cake covered in buttercream and filled with strawberries, raspberries and whipped cream. I decorated the cake with fondant flowers and a wooden dowel and ribbons for the May pole.

Chocolate Mousse Cake with Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

This cake was made for a 40th birthday celebration. It was a replica of the birthday boy's groom's cake. The thoughtful and lovely wife who ordered this for her husband's birthday, gave me a wedding photo of the cake so that I wouldn't miss any details. This is a dark chocolate cake with chocolate mousse filling, covered in chocolate buttercream and drizzled with dark chocolate. On the top are dark chocolate dipped strawberries and chocolate curls.

Mystery Cake

There's really nothing mysterious about this cake except that the sophisticated flavors of dark chocolate cake and chocolate mousse are hidden underneath the pretty green and pink plaid buttercream. I made the cake for a seven year old's Nancy Drew themed birthday party. Nancy Drew wears lots of plaid so, after getting the birthday girl's approval, I decided to decorate the cake in plaid. The fondant magnifying glass adds a element of fun and goes well the birthday scavenger hunt and sleuths kit party favors.
