Steak Cake

Photo: Yummy cake

Darwin's Grandpa Glen Johnson turned 80 this pasted weekend. We were able to go back to Burns for the celebration, and I was asked to make him a cake. Darwin's Aunt Sharon came up with the idea of doing a big ole steak, I added the mashed potatoes and corn. It turned out really well! I was really worried about the steak looking cartoony but all in all it turned out pretty good. Everything on the plate is edible. The mashed potatoes, are chocolate cake that I covered in ivory fondant, I didn't want it smooth or pretty as it is suppose to be potatoes, the butter is a yellow starburst complete with Butterscotch "gravy". The corn is cake covered in ivory fondant, then I made three different shades of yellow and hand rolled the kernels. I then colored some sugar black for pepper. The steak is just cake covered in white fondant and then I hand painted it. All it all I think it is one for the portfolio!

Another Cake

It would seem as of late that I'm not cooking any other than cake....I assure you my family is eating regular balanced meals and not just cake. I just haven't blogged about the recipes and really haven't made anything new, lately...other than cakes. So yes this post is about yet another cake.
I made a Birthday cake for my friend Amy's son Dillon and her friend saw it and wanted a cake made for her son's Birthday. Batman was the desired theme. Here is what the cake looked like...
Overall I'm pleased with how it turned out. The little boy was pretty excited about the cake as well. My kids we're bummed because they weren't invited to the birthday party of the kid they don't know.
So I've had lots of people ask me for business cards and I've decided it is time to make my cake business a little more official. So I'm going to order some business cards, but I can not for the life of me come up with a name...any ideas?
