this week I had 2 orders for 50th birthday cakes- both of which were for surprise parties! the first one was a tropical- themed 2 tier vanilla and dark chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream. it was a lot of fun to do since i was given practically carte blanche for the design. i made a sketch to start but found myself coming up with new ideas as the cake came together! i was very pleased with the final result :)
the next cake was for my "uncle's" 50th birthday. he is a huge habs fan so i made the cake red and blue and hockey all over! i was instructed to make it a little humorous, and replace the hockey stick with a cane :P i also steamed this cake to give it a nice, shiny finish. it was my first attempt doing so, and i really liked the result it gave.
