Saturday Sweets! July 14, 2012

Cake
I thought I'd share another cake with you.  I posted one a couple months ago here:  Owl Cake
The cake above is one that I did for fun and practice.  I completed it on a Friday and posted a picture on Facebook asking if any of my friends needed a free cake that weekend.  One of my friends happened to be having her daughter "Olive's" (cute name) first birthday on Saturday - so it worked out perfectly.  The top tier is a 6 inch cake so she was able to give it to Olive for her "smash cake".
The inside of each tier consisted of white cake with raspberry mousse filling.

The design for this cake was inspired by a cake on Flickr from "Rouvellee"

Have a fun Saturday!

    1. Hey thanks:) It's a fun hobby, but a lot more time consuming than painting my nails!

  3. This would make a really cute nail design too. You could use your striping tape (assuming you bought some? I saw your fb post about it) or just draw lines on your nails with the blue colors, then do an accent nail of the middle cake!

    1. I am buying the tape today. I saved the link:) It's funny because I always looks at colors, etc. around the world and think "that color would be really pretty on the nails!" We'll see about the nail art, I haven't really done nail art before...

    1. The chocolate yes....the vanilla/white I use the boxed cake as a base but add a bunch more ingredients including sour cream. It's called WASC (White Almond Sour Cream) if you Google the recipe. I just haven't found a good vanilla/white from scratch recipe. And the icing is scratch too.
