A super busy week in cake! From Graduations to Dragons...

I finally finished this weeks cakes! The first cake I'm showing you was done for a friend's son. She is a pastry chef and makes YUMMY treats but she doesn't do the kind of sculpting and detail work I do. So... she decided to order her son's cake so she could try one of my creations first hand. This is a chocolate cake with peanut butter cup filling. You can check out Stefanie's desserts at Decadent Desserts by Stefanie. I recommend the Rocher!! YUMMY!




The second cake was done for a graduation. This client requested stacked books with a graduation cap and the graduate wearing his future college's t-shirt. I'm really pleased with how it turned out. Although... this is one HEAVY cake!!! White Almond Sour Cream cake with raspberry filling and yellow cake with chocolate ganache.



This final cake was done for a client who originally called Charm City Cakes for a quote. And to my surprise, Charm City Cakes told her to call ME!!! I was so excited to get a referral from CCC that I sent them a big old box of Holiday Crunch! Anyway... the client asked for a blue dragon with black accents and a crystal ball. The crystal ball is made of sugar and resulted in 3 blisters on the palms of my hands! OUCH! This cake is 100% edible! Vanilla cake with buttercream filling. I'm very pleased with the results of this guy. I was a little nervous starting out as I was afraid it would just look like a big lizard... that is until I realized that a dragon IS a big lizard! Enjoy!

I would like to thank you very much. The Dragon Cake was number one with the Kids. Everyone asked if that was a cake and your not going to cut it are you. They couldn't believe it when we cut it. The cake was also very good. Everyone was very happy with it. I can not say it enough. Thank you so very much.
