Mardi Gras Sweet 16

Ben’s cousin called and wanted a cake for their daughter and a friend, Autum and Tara.  They would share this cake for their Sweet Sixteen Birthdays.  They chose the Mardi Gras theme, a three tier vanilla cake with buttercream to feed 50.

We began by baking two 6″, two 8″ and two 10″ round cakes.  After individually icing each tier with different Mardi Gras theme colored buttercream, 10″ – Purple, 8″ – Green, 6″ – Yellow, we stacked all three cakes.  We piped a diamond type pattern on each tier in the color of the cake above and then piped in cornelli lace to fill the areas.  We piped a large bead border on each tier and then placed Mardi Gras beads around each layer.  We placed a small mask to adorn the bottom tier and a large mask with feather for the topper.  Finally we piped “Happy Sweet 16 Autum & Tara” and called it complete!

Thanks, Brandon and Christy, for allowing us to create such a fun, colorful cake.  We hope the girls have an absolutely amazing day!

Base Loaded!

Megan contacted us a few months back about doing a cake for her son’s third birthday. She wanted a baseball theme vanilla cake with buttercream to feed 30.

We began by baking two 10″ round cakes and a half of a ball pan. We stacked the two 10″ cakes on top of each other and iced with buttercream. We piped the grass on top of the cake as well as the bottom border. We covered the ball with buttercream, piped the red laces and placed on top of the grass. The night before, we created the “3” and “HARGIS” with royal icing and let it harden overnight. We leaned the “3” up against the baseball and “HARGIS” up against the side of the cake. Finally, we piped Happy Birthday above Hargis’s name in white buttercream.

Megan, thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of his fun day. We hope Hargis has the best birthday ever!
