Happy Birthday Tori!!

Happy 8th Birthday Tori!!  Thank you for having us at your birthday party, we had a blast!  She had her party at the Cleveland Zoo and it was such a nice party.  The cake was devils food, dark chocolate ganache filling, covered in fondant, fondant decorations and bow,  and gumpaste flowers, the zebra was made out of fondant.

Happy Birthday Tori!!

Just a simple last minute cake!

A very dear friend, you might as well say, brother (I consider him my brother), his mother passed away after a short illness and I wanted him to have a cake for the funeral reception.  It was last minute, devils food with dark chocolate ganache /buttercream filling, iced in buttercream.  I had asked him what her favorite colors were and he said tan and brown,  So a tan cake, with white roses is what I did.
I had no problems doing the cake, the problems came after.  When I was putting the cake in the box, my finger slipped and I put a big gash in the side of the cake.  I patched it up, and then closed the box.  My husband came home and wanted to see it, so I opened the box and found out I had smashed the roses when closing the box.  UGH!  Well at least I got a picture before the all the mishaps :P
