Banana Split Cake

Banana Split cake for a 31st birthday.  It’s a 10” cake, carved to resemble a serving dish – the cake flavor is Neopolitan (alternate layers of chocolate and vanilla cakes w/strawberry buttercream) , covered in chocolate ganache.  White Chocolate Fondant was used to cover and decorate. Ice Cream Scoops are jumbo cupcakes covered in buttercream.  Banana and cherries are real.  Enjoy!

3D Giant Slice of Cake

When I designed this cake, I had absolutely no idea how cute it would turn out!!!! This has to be my favorite cake that I have made all year. I love the overall design and the way the color scheme came together.  This cake was for my sisters 21st birthday, and she didn’t want a big cake since she was also having Pineapple Upside Down Cake at her dinner.  It’s a 10” cake – the flavors are chocolate cake with caramel buttercream, covered in chocolate ganache I used White Chocolate Fondant (my new fave) to cover and decorate.   Enjoy!

Donut Cake

I had soooo much fun making this cake. After researching donut cakes online I found a quick video on youtube by UrbanSweetsLA. I started off with a 10”x4” round vanilla cake, which was filled and coated with Vanilla SMBC. I then carved the cake to resemble a donut shape.

I then mixed white and chocolate fondant together to make the “donut” color (it’s a little darker than I would have liked) and covered the cake.

Pink fondant “frosting”

For presentation purposes I stopped by my local Dunkin Donuts to get a box ($.50), I think this added a better touch than just a decorated cakeboard.
The final cake!
