I haven't had a chance to sit down and scrap this week yet (have that planned for the weekend), but I have been baking and thought I would share with you what I've created
The first one was for my SIL's birthday. It was a practice for a wedding cake I'm doing in December, but I got off the beaten track and it's not anything like it should have been !!!
The bottom layer is a chocolate mud cake covered in ganache, and filled with chocolate cream. Top layer is vanilla sponge with buttercream and chocolate cream inside.
I've also been working on a few Christmas ideas and here's my first batch of cupcakes
Again, chocolate mud cake, with vanilla been frosting. They were delicious !!! Of course I HAD to sample the one remaining cake ;)
I've made a few cupcake bouquets lately. I love doing them for people and they are a great way to say "thankyou, happy birthday, get well" etc. Any occassion is great for one of these!!!
This bouquet was for a baby memorial :( Very sad, so I was happy to help put a smile on the parents faces.
Here's one wrapped up and ready to be delivered
A couple of other chocolate goodies
And finally, my first engagement cake. I was rather pleased how this turned out as it was a last minute rush as the original cake maker fell ill.
So, that's what I've been doing. Plan on doing more this weekend while the boys are away for the weekend. If anyone is in the Melbourne area and is interested in a cake, drop me a line and I'll send you my contact details. Happy to help out.
Thanks for the kind comments in my last post. Still doesn't seem real, but we're all doing OK.
Have a great weekend, and GO PIES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
