Cake 1 - Cheburashka
Huh?? lol that's what I said when I got the request for this one. :) It was from a friend and collegue who's husband is from Russia. I learned that Cheburashka is a character from a Russian Childrens book/story. If you click on the name above, you can read all about it. :)
The next fun part is that this cake was CHOCOLATE!!!!! :) I hardly ever get to make chocolate cake - but it's one of my favorites!! :) anyway - the request was for a Cheburashka cake witha pink background, a red present and Happy Birthday Klara. I think I did ok. :) Oh - and the birthday girl is out of this world A-DOR-A-BLE!!! :)
Cake 2 - Happy Birthday Boss :)
This week is my Boss's birthday and every year I have made him a Canadiens cake. This year, however, I didn't plan very well and realize far too late that...I didn't have red coloring. Contrary to Sophia's suggestion, I knew that a pink logo was not an option so instead...he got a boring blue frosted cake. It was so boring, in fact, that I didn't even bother with a picture. lol
Cake 3 - Happy Birthday Sophie!!!
Remember the Octonauts cake from a few weeks back?? Well - this one is for his little sister!!! This cake has perplexed me for weeks! Cake customer gave me creative freedom - which was a bad idea cuz my creative cake brain was on over drive!!! I finally settled on an idea with some help and guidance from her and this is what I came up with...I wish I could have cut into the cake to show the inside, but that would have been inappropriate. lol She did promise to send me a picture, though, of the 6 layers of pink to mauve ombre inside. :)
I also made a little smash cake for the birthday girl, so that she coudl rip through it at her hearts content. :) I used my Nanna's recipe for basic white cake, which is a little more dense and less "flingable". :) Still - lots and lots of super pink frosting to provide a suitable sugar rush. :) The picture is deceiving, though, it's not as big as it looks. It's actually the same size as a can of crushed tomatoes. ;) hehe - I love cans. :) And that's the end of my cake week. Next weekend, though, I have a LalaLoopsy cake due for Friday followed by a shower cake for work the next week. After that ...I'm done with cakes until 2013 so that I can spend the holidays focussing on Family. :) YAY!
p.s. Dontcha just LOVE the pink?? :)
