Red Velvet Cake for a Physician’s Assistant...this cake only took a couple of hours!

Ok, yeah I know it's been a GOOD minute since I updated the blog lol, but I'll start where I left off...bear with me!

My 1st Coach purse cake...gave me a lot of trouble and I did it over so I'm happy now!
Originally, I had done the purse and didn't like it so I took everything off the ganache and redid it glad I did because it came out better than expected.  I cut out a stencil and made my own edible paint, working slowly and cautiously; I then put it atop a sheet cake as a base.

Slowly but surely.....I'm catching up my blog!  Easter week was one of the busiest I've had, so much that I didn't even get to prepare my Easter dinner until that morning....sad, I know lol.  But, the week was fun helping my daughter do 25 Easter baskets and doing my own orders for that week which included 7 dozen of these babies:

Baby Chicks

Thanks Bakerella for the design!

It's really been that long?  I've really been that busy?  Wow, I've barely even touched a computer since Easter so my blog has been neglected :(  I've got new content though!!!

I'm soooo grateful to be busy with projects but need to make time for my blog so time to catch up:

Here is a 1st birthday cake I made for a family that prefers whipped cream to frosting.  So, not having much experience in this area, I found that decorations WILL MELT on whipped cream but sugar sheets won't!  Imagine that!

My oldest son kept saying that he just wanted to cut into this cake.......I did too  :)

Here in California, we don't have substantial 'winter' weather, especially this year we've only had a few days of light rain.  Now that it's spring, it's outside raining cats 'n dogs!  When it rains....I bake.  They go hand in hand for relaxation but it also warms up the house LOL.

So, I started out making sample cookies for Spring & Easter, trying to get a feel for what I want to do for the parties that day but the humidity seemed to affect my royal icing :(  so I wasn't too happy with the outcome.

Well, been AWOL for a few days thanks to a certain restaurant letting me 'have it my way'.  Food poisoning is the most horrible...well that's another story...

Anyway, weak & lightheaded as I was (4 pounds lighter too) I had a cake to do and had to keep to schedule.  This was a 58th Anniversary cake, red velvet & white velvet w/strawberry filling.  Pretty easy to do, since I couldn't over do it at the time:
