A quick cake I threw together for our parish potluck picnic. The cake is a simple vanilla cake, filled with raspberry buttercream and iced with vanilla bean custard buttercream. A few roses and gumpaste leaves complete this elegantly simple, romantic cake.
Here is baby shower cake for Jenn, anticipating the happy arrival of her son. In blog world, Jenn goes by the nom-de-blog of Blue Henn. Her blog picture – an embroidered blue hen – served as my inspiration for the brush embroidery decorations and the gumpaste chicken topper. The cake was carrot cake with cream cheese icing under the homemade fondant.
