Cake for Cindy Oct. 2010

A huge cake for Cindy. The bottom layer is a dummy, the yellow is vanilla with coconut cream filling, the pink is chocolate with bavarian cream filling, the green and lilac are strawberry with strawberry mousse. I could not get the top layer and the turret to sit up straight. A chef at the hotel and I struggled for quite some time and finally decided it would do no harm. (I hope it was a good decision.) It took nearly an hour to get it set up, and there were several hotel restaurant staff watching, just to add to the stress. Everything is edible except the base layer and the turret cylinder. The decorations are fondant and chocolate. The roses are gum paste. I asked who was going to serve the cake, figuring it would be the restaurant staff, but was told it would most probably be taken home for the family to eat. A cake for 150 and they're taking it home?

16th of September

Was really happy with the cake but thought it needed some sparkle so I added sanding sugar. Now, I think it looks blotchy. Nothing I can do about it but it won't happen again, that's for sure.

Texas Pecan cupcakes

Found this recipe on the web. Thought it sounded good and there were several positive comments. Well, they were the driest cupcakes I have ever eaten, much like a dry shortbread. I want to play with the recipe and see if it can be made into a nicer texture. The flavor is nice but...

Davie's Birthday cake

Busy weekend...It's always a challenge designing a cake for a fisherman. I found out he also enjoys music, although, no one told me what kind. So, I came up with a two tier idea, little fishes blowing bubbles up to the second tier that will have the song, in notes and words, to Happy Birthday. The topper will be? Here's hoping! It'll be fun putting it together.

Strawberry Mousse

2 packages unflavored gelatin

1/2 cold water

2 cups Strawberry Puree

3/4 cup granulated sugar

2 tablespoons lemon juice

2 cups Whipped Cream (whipped to soft peaks)

Place the gelatin and water in a medium sauce pan and allow the gelatin to soften. Slowly heat the mixture until the gelatin has dissolved, stirring constantly.

Add the Strawberry Puree and sugar to the gelatin, mix over a very low heat until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat, add the lemon juice and allow to cool to room temperature.

Whip the cream to soft peaks. Gently fold the Strawberry mixture into the whipped cream. Place in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Note: Cool Whip can be substituted for the whipped cream.
Thank you CC.
