This week has been a whirlwind of activity, but I wanted to share a couple of fun cakes...
The first cake is another take on sushi...I'm really trying to learn to appreciate sushi. I'm making some progress, but I can never pass up sushi made out of sugar and cake!
Everything including the plate and chopsticks are edible. The "bamboo" around the outside of the cake is modeling chocolate and the banner says, "Happy Birthday" in Japanese (or at least that's what I hope it says!). My friend, Kelly, at Willow & Wildflowers, ordered the cake for a friend's birthday.
This is a birthday cake for a very sweet 18 yr. old whose birthday is on Christmas Day. Her birthday always gets rolled into the Christmas holiday, so her mother wanted a birthday cake that was totally unrelated to Christmas. I must credit the design to another sugar artist named Andrea. She posts on Flikr and does incredible work! Check out Andrea's Sweetcakes for more awesome creations. I had such a good time with this cake!
Tune in next week...I have a Ferrari and a couple of really beautiful wedding cakes coming up.
