Have your Skateboard & Eat it Too

Village Sweets worked on a special theme cake this week.  An all edible Skateboard for Gab. After figuring out the design, we were ready to create a cool looking skateboard complete with wheels and a ramp.  We added a checkerboard, flames and skull design to the top of the board. This skateboard was made of a Red Velvet cake with a Vanilla Butter-cream frosting covered in a cherry red fondant (Gab’s favorite color).  The ramp, also made with the red velvet cake and the wheels were fashioned out of Rice Krispie’s.  

Gab,  hope you enjoyed your cake and HaPpY BiRtHdAy!!

Fresh Basket of Flowers

Making a cake can be so much fun, especially when it comes to design.  Put your mind to it and you can fashion a cake to whatever shape you like.  I love fresh flowers, especially from my garden.  An inspiring thought came to me to create a basket of fresh flowers complete with a ribbon wrapped handle and a pretty bow.  The flowers were made from Royal Icing and Gum paste.  The bow and ribbon were also gum paste.  I fashioned my handle with a Rice Krispie’s recipe.  The cake, a delicious moist Pumpkin Spice Cake and an Ultimate Vanilla Buttercream Frosting completes my basket weave piped design.
