Things are hopping in the CREO kitchen lately! I have had my apron on literally every day for the past 3 weeks. 'Tis the season for birthdays...and engaged couples are in the thick of wedding planning for the spring as well. I have 2 weddings on the books for the next few months. SO excited about those!
I already shared the Star Wars cake that I made for my own boys. Literally, the day before their party, I had an order for another set of twins who were turning 4. Their Mom was going all out with a party at an indoor pool for the kids and a party at home for the family. She asked for 3 dozen cupcakes for the kids' party. We decided on a beach/luau theme to match the swimming activity and the adorable invitations. Cupcakes were ChocoMocha with Vanilla Buttercream and fondant toppers. They make me pine for the beach!
Next up were 2 6" cakes, customized for each of her children. A Disney Princess cake for her daughter and a DC Comics cake for her son. We discussed several options for fondant characters, but in the interest of budget, decided to use some store-bought decor to embellish my designs.
The Princess cake was covered in rosette design make with tinted Vanilla Buttercream. I love how it turned out - so lush! I also made a fondant crown to sit atop the cake and surrounded it with the pre-made princesses.
For the Superhero cake, I hand-cut the logos for each of the characters and made the Batman-style message plaques for the top. I LOVE how those turned out!
Thanks to Melissa for thinking of me for this very special day!
Off now to clean the kitchen. Ugh..anyone free to help?
