Small fun with White Chocolate and Delicious Cake!

This weekend turned out quite exciting with two cake orders for this saturday.  Luckily for me, both cakes were specified as the same frosting, filling, and cake - which saved me a lot of time.

The Cake - Made for a Mother, Kate, for her birthday. 10-inch two layer white cake, filled and frosted with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream and garnished with Ghirardelli White Chocolate shavings. (Melt on your tongue amazing) Made Saturday, December 12, for consumption on December 13. ($65)

The Cupcakes - Made for an anniversary.  24 White Cake cupcakes, frosted with Vanilla Swiss Meringue Buttercream and garnished with Ghirardelli White Chocolate shavings.  Made Saturday, December 12, for consumption tonight! ($30)

Altobelli Mini-Food Drive Cake

This 42-cupcake cupcake cake was delivered this morning to Mr. Altobelli.  It was the reward to the class that raised the most non-perishable items for the NHS Food Drive.

I am also doing a cake for the winning homeroom for the NHS Food drive.  That is December 23, 2009.

Africa Cake!

A friend of mine is going to Moshi, Tanzania - Africa for 8 months and was thrown a huge party. I was enlisted to do the cake!

These are the beginnings of the gumpaste accents to the cake. The little balls are "pearls." They were made a week before the cake was assembled, and then set out to harden for the rest of the week...
Then the frosting and filling had to be made. After a large frosting catastrophe, I found an idea from the SmittenKitchen blog...and i used that idea! Thankfully, oh so thankfully, the recipe worked. I am so grateful to that woman.

ahh! I planned on including all photos of the cake process, but alas, blogger is disagreeing with this prospect. Here is the finished cake!
