Courtney and I have been busy making cakes this weekend; we made 1 (this one) on Thursday, 2 on Friday and 3 on Saturday so get ready subscribers for a bunch of posts today! I couldn’t put them on the blog until I knew that everyone had received them because they were all either birthday or Father’s Day cakes and I didn’t want to ruin anyone’s surprise. Patty, Mary’s mom, asked us to make a cake for Mary’s birthday. Mary’s favorite colors are white, purple and yellow and her favorite flavor is dark chocolate so I made her a nice deep rich cocoa flavored cake (using the White Almond Sour Cream recipe as a base and subbing 1/2 cup cocoa for 1/2 cup of the flour that you add to the cake mix), Vanilla Buttercream frosting (tinted purple for an extra surprise underneath) and the Satin Ice Buttercream Fondant bought online at Global Sugar Art. We adapted this design idea from a Wilton cake design and I think it came out really cute. Courtney made all the flowers and I love how she gave them dimension on this cake. Happy Birthday Mary!
