Noah’s Ark First Birthday Cake

A cake I’m rather proud of – the Noah’s Ark design was inspired by the invitation we received for Theo’s friend’s first birthday party.  The ark, rainbow, and animals are made of gumpaste and fondant.  A new recipe again, this carrot cake contains no refined sugar, just local honey from my parents’ hives.  The frosting is cream cheese buttercream.

Champagne Cake

A pink champagne cake, filled with white chocolate cream cheese buttercream and a homemade raspberry conserve.  Between the cake layers and the French buttercream icing, this uses a whole bottle of champagne!
