Weekend Cakes

Baby Shower Cake - It was designed off of the invitation. Bow was made out of gumpaste (next time I should try chocolate clay). Cake was yellow cake with swiss meringue buttercream and covered with american buttercream. It was my first time to make swiss meringue buttercream, and it is awesome!

The dreaded sheet cake! Haha, I am not a big sheet cake fan, in fact they almost seem more complicated to me, to try to fill up all that space without it looking like a Publix cake. It was red velvet with white chocolate cream cheese frosting. This frosting actually crusts which was awesome, so I was able to Viva it. I hand-painted it, my first time trying that on frosting. The cake was for a surprise retirement party. (I didn't know it was a surprise until I got the cake there, I almost put my foot in my mouth like five times!) For the design, they wanted feminine and flowers (scary!).
