Mother’s day by far has been the busiest cake day of the year for me! I had so many orders I didn’t know what to do with myself. I spent over 12 hours preparing, decorating and delivering cakes, if not more time than that. I was so grateful for all the orders though and I can’t wait to do it again next year!
Here are some specialty cakes that I have done here and there for a couple meetups I have gone to and some I have just made to take to work:
Thin Mint cake: A chocolate cake with a crushed thin mint filling and a mint buttercream topped with ganache and more crushed thin mints.
Peanut Butter Ganache Cake: Chocolate cake with a peanut butter filling and peanut butter frosting topped with chocolate ganache.
Strawberry Ganache Cake: A vanilla cake with a homemade strawberry jam filling, vanilla buttercream topped with chocolate ganache and sliced strawberries.
Oreo mini cake: Vanilla cake with crushed oreos in the batter, an oreo filling and oreo buttercream topped with split oreos.
Cherry cake: A vanilla cake with a whipped ganache filling topped with chocolate covered cherries and covered in a vanilla bean buttercream.
I had free reign on this design since I decided to make this cake as a gift for a couple co workers that were expecting. I just had to follow the design of the invitations. The cake is a vanilla bean cake. The bottom tier is filled with a thin mint filling and the top tier is filled with a strawberry filling.
