I need to start working on my piping technique as far as piping frosting goes… so here was one practice session with some fun photos 🙂
They remind me of ice cream cones….
My boyfriend and I made a race car birthday cake, reminiscent of our friend’s actual race car. Our friend has been working on maintaining what started out as a 1986 Chevrolet Chevette suitable for racing at events, such as the ChumpCar race that takes place at Portland International Raceway. In his first race, he won the trophy for the “Spirit of ChumpCar”! You can follow his facebook page here!
The car itself has gone through quite a series of transformations as far as paint jobs, decor, tires, other parts and engines are concerned; besides tires, he is even known for switching out engines mid-race!
We sculpted the double-layer chocolate cake, and decorated accordingly….
This was a delicious and perfectly decadent Thanksgiving Holiday dessert 🙂 I found the recipe on myrecipes.com.
I designed a birthday brownie flag, incorporating a silly saying/nick-name that had been created the month prior… printed the designs out, wrapped the two-sided design around a toothpick, glued the halves together, and placed one in the top of each brownie slice 🙂 I made the brownies in an edge pan, similar to this one, and used a Marbled Cheesecake Brownie recipe that came with the pan.
This cake falls within one of the first handfuls that I made, and my friend Suzie and I made it together! I remember the summer was a very very hot one, and we slaved away on this cake for hours into the night so that we could take it with us the next day to our friend’s engagement party.
We baked enough chocolate cakes for a double-tier freehand heart-shape cake…
I baked a decadent chocolate cake for my brother’s 41st birthday… I wish I remembered what recipe I used!
I cut out letters in thin chip board, placed them on top, dusted with powdered sugar, and then carefully removed them. I think I put tape tabs on top of the letters (sticking straight up) for easy removal…
