My husband doesn't often get to involved in my cakes. But when he saw this pan online a month ago he sent me the link noting that I needed to make that cake. I happily abliged for a party we went to. It was a chocolate cake dusted in powedered sugar.
John found this recipe for me and we took a couple coconuts and cracked them and shredded them ourselves and make this delicicous cake. It was so rich and heavenly you couldn't eat much. We've tried the recipe with store bought coconut but it's just not as good as when you get it fresh out of a coconut.
I got together with a couple great ladies in the ward and we sat and frosted these cupcakes the other two ladies made. We were able to do it all in just a couple hours. Not bad. And they turned out so fun if you ask me.
This cake goes back a few years for me....June of 2006 my sister got married and made her this wedding cake. Her colors were red and black but she had a definite princess theme especially to her cake. It was fun to do all the swags and such on a cake. I also made all the flowers on the cake out of frosting.
My favorite was all the little girls who wouldn't walk away from the table with the cake.
This isn't anything too fancy and not the most "amazing picture" or anything. But this is the cake and party bags we threw together for my daughter's 4th birthday. She is horse obsessed currently. We then took the same image and made a coloring page for the kids and a super large one for the wall for pin the tail on the horse.
My kids love the opportunity to make up a quick batch of cupcakes to give to
friends and family. The top are cherry chip cupcakes they took to friends. The
second are white chocolate funfetti cupcakes made for teachers.
This was a super tricky cake to make. It was a white chocolate cake with
strawberry filling on the top and bottom layers. The middle layer was a carrot
cake with cream cheese filling. The whole thing was decorated with a whipped
cream cheese frosting. Super tasty, but such a hard frosting to work with.
Luckily it held up for the reception. I was so relieved!
Not often am I in a picture with a cake, since my daughter was there to attend the wedding with me she snapped this picture of me with my work.
Final side note, please don't ask for this frosting....you will probably be turned down unless it's a simple small round cake with minimal design.
