The same can be true for special events with lots of people, as they are often celebrated with the giving or receiving of cake. Whether it’s a large gathering, a small celebration or even just a party of one, let us help you cuddle up and enjoy your next special event.
2015 Pioneer cake
For the 2015 Pioneer meal. I asked another baker to share in the baking of this cake; carrot, chocolate, and oatmeal cookies were made and I just added the decoration.
The Bible was chocolate cake covered with white butter cream with the front pages actual printed photo copies of real Bible pages but printed on edible icing sheets using food colors. The hand was shaped rice covered with colored modeling chocolate and the arm was chocolate cake covered with colored modeling chocolate.
The sower had rice as the supporting core and modeling chocolate for the clothing and body features. Real chia seed is in his pouch. Totally edible.
Networking group cake
This cake was for my former networking group. A group that proved to be around 35 instead of the expected 50-60.
It was an all gluten free chocolate and white checker board cake inside with white chocolate ganache covering.
First-, second- and third-place winners are represented with their business cards printed on edible icing sheets. The lower tier was for the member who is a bookkeeper, so I made her a gum paste pencil. The middle tier was for a computer website designer/developer, and for him I made a modeling chocolate wireless mouse. The top tier was first place and he is a financial coach who is also a real-life game coach for the Cal Bears … hence the chocolate caps with the symbol of a bear claw and the rice paper pointing hands. Edible of course.
The decorative sparkle in the back ground is not edible but helps to highlight the winner. Different, I suppose, but we are all professionals in our respective trades and I tried to be respectful of this when designing the cake. I was going to do more decorations but the structural strength of this particular gluten free cake was not supportively strong enough as what might have been with a regular cake. In all, I hope everyone liked not just the taste but was entertained by how it looked.
He wanted something that would be descriptive yet attractive for the homeowner. So a two-part cake was created. The top part was to be a cabinet door of the style used in the kitchen and the bottom was the box of the cabinet, which would hold an edible picture of the finished kitchen.
The door itself was shaped from vegan marshmallows and rice krispies. The pull is gum paste. The cabinet box was vegan chocolate cake covered with white chocolate with an edible picture of the finished kitchen (not shown). (8/2011)
