My sister's father in law just turned 68. His wife requested a harley themed cake. He just bought this new 2010 street glide in spiced rum and that is what this cake is based off...minus the biker babe. He couldn't believe that it looked like his bike and couldn't figure out how I did it considering he just bought the bike and noone had seen it yet....gotta love the internet.
So a friend at work asked me to make her wedding cake for her in july. She has a recipe she loves so I needed to try it out. I made a test layer to see how it worked out. This is 'Died-and-gone-to-heaven' cake and khalua filling with buttercream frosting and fondant. It was a great success, I can't wait to do the cake in july.
So my sister's inlaws were on a 101 day cruise and missed out on all the grandkids birthdays.
To celebrate their home coming, they had one big party and she asked for one big cake. Her 11 year old did the basic design for the cake. I added a few special elements for each of them on the cake too, to make it special. I was mostly happy with this cake but it is a bit sloppy and I wish i had done better with the fondant.
