A New Addition...

This is the cake I made for my baby shower this past weekend. It's a marble orange cake with citrus buttercream. The topper represents our family waiting on our new addition to "hatch". I thought I made too much cake, but as usual, my family and friends didn't disappoint.

Habana Nights

Dominoes anyone?
The client wanted chocolate and she got it; chocolate cake with chocolate ganache and chocolate buttercream. This cake was fun to make. I enjoyed creating the wood grain look on fondant and rolling my own "Cohiba" Cuban cigar with chocolate fondant. As for the sugar paste dominoes, I actually played a round of dominoes with my husband to set them up on the cake.
