Birthday Cakes

6 May

May 6th, 2013

Back in March I was asked to make 3 different birthday cakes, which all happen to be on the same weekend! It sounds stressful, but I didn’t hesitate because they were for three adorable kids. With a little planning ahead of time, I finished the cakes on time and they turned out great.  The kids loved them and the parents were happy! Take a look:

Cake #1: A Train-Themed Cake for Landon
This was a 9-inch chocolate cake filled with chocolate buttercream and covered with fondant.

Cake #2: A Girly Cake for Violet
This was a 6-inch vanilla sponge cake, filled with lemon mousse. The exterior was covered with buttercream rosettes.

To give the cake more texture, I added edible sugar pearls at the center of each rosette.

Cake #3: A Despicable-Me Cake for Gavin
This was a 6-in chocolate cake filled with chocolate buttercream and covered with fondant. Surprisingly, I have never seen Despicable Me, but when I was doing my research on the Minions, it looks like a very adorable movie. Will have to add it to my movie list.
