Cakessica Bleeds Red

After a long summer break (hence no new posts since June) I am back at it. Fall is beginning, days are getting shorter and nights are getting cooler which means football season is underway. As a former Ute, it's only natural that I was pretty excited to watch them play BYU and decided to make a cake for the event. The cake featured a hand painted University of Utah logo and fondant football resting in buttercream grass.

It was vanilla cake with cookies and cream filling and swiss meringue buttercream. And of course, it had to be RED!

Victory never tasted so good!

Buttercream Roses

Generally roses are not my favorite flower...unless they are made out of white chocolate buttercream! These simple flowers made for an elegant and tasty addition to this dark chocolate cake. I played around with colors and ended up with pale purple roses and then purple/red roses. There will definitely be more floral cakes in my decorating future!

Odds and Ends

I made these cakes quite a while ago but just haven't got around to posting them.

I made this cake for a Kings of Leon fan to have at a release party for their latest CD. It was pumpkin cake with vanilla custard filling and maple buttercream.

This cake I made just for fun. I don't remember the flavor but I'm assuming it had chocolate in there somewhere. I always find a way to include chocolate in any cake that I make for myself.
