Happy Birthday Brian--this Bud's for you

For my son-in-law, Brian, a dark chocolate cake filled with whipped peanut butter buttercream and covered in fondant.  The foam on the beer is hazelnut buttercream.  The beer can suspended in mid air seems like magic even to me, and I know how its done.

I've got a bit of catching up to do

First there was a cobra for Nicholas.  Chocolate cake with bubble gum flavored buttercream and a rice cereal cobra.

Then there was a princess cake for a little princess. 

Then it was Austin's birthday and his aunt Bekki thought he was deserving of a very special cake.  It looks to me like he was pleased with the result:

And finally, there was a red velvet birthday cake that I call "petals and pearls" for a very dear friend whose birthday I had forgotten.  Happy birthday Suz. . .

My heart for you. . . .

A superbly moist and delicious carrot cake with a cream cheese whipped buttercream inside and out to celebrate five marvellous years.  They say that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach . . .

Its almost like magic. . . .

I know. . . I know. . .its science, but it seems almost like magic.

You take a little of this, a little of that, some of this other . . . .

give it a little time . . .  and you get something that looks nothing like what you started with. . .

so you poke and prod it and give it a shape.. . . .

and give it some time in a hot oven. . . . and voila!. . . You get this. . .

Which, of course, leads to this. . . .

And since I'm not supposed to talk with my mmmffff fuull. . . . . .

Sometimes... a cake is just a cake

A rich dark chocolate cake with a generous rich cheesecake filling topped with an airy whipped cream cheese buttercream.  Happy Birthday Vincent (even if you don't really like cake) and David (we missed you).

And it was good to the last bite.
