Editors Note: I actually wrote this blog last Sunday, but didn’t have the time to get all of the pictures, etc. up until now. SO, I apologize that I am professing love to all mom’s a week late. Don’t worry, though, all of the mom’s in my life were appreciated appropriately in a very timely manner! Besides, there’s no reason that every Sunday shouldn’t be a day to appreciate mom!!
One lucky Mom was the recipient of the cake above. It is an 8″ peanut butter cup cake, which means that peanut butter filling is sandwiched between 2 layers of chocolate cake and the cake is frosted with ganache. I must say that this is THE best ganache cake that I have done. Well, I should say, it was, until I smashed part of the cake with the refrigerator handle! Part of the fun in cake decorating, though, is covering up unsightly mistakes. Can you tell where it was? My favorite part of this cake was definitely the sparkle on the roses. I finally got the shimmer dust to really shimmer! I have found that the more generous you are with the shimmer dust, the more shimmer you will get. Seems pretty elementary, I suppose.
Here is what the recipient said about the cake: “Nicole!!!! Thanks for the cake. It was amazing. Everyone loved it, and it’s gone. Believe it or not, the cake was the reason a large chunk of my family got together. My dad invited everyone over because we had a bitchin cake. It’s like alcohol to get a party started, but instead, it’s cake to get the family party started. Thanks again!” And that pretty much sums up why I make cake!!
Last weekend I gave my mom a flower for her birthday, so I didn’t want to do that again for Mom’s day. So, of course, in true Cake Utopia style, I made her a bouquet of the edible variety! Please click the picture below to see more pictures.
As a little bonus for my customer yesterday, I sent him home with a free one of these for his mom. These super cute bouquets would also be fabulous as a center piece for a special occasion or even as a party favor for a wedding. They can be made to order and customized to meet your every cake pop desire!.
