Asilo de Los Ancianos Christmas 2012

Vanilla cake with Bavarian Cream filling.  Serves 85.  All edible.
  Christmas is a good time of year.  The weather is wonderful, cool enough to be outside and warm enough to be comfortable.  The party is a huge event with high school students being tasked with serving all the food and desserts.  This year I got to visit with a couple young ladies there to help.  Carols are sung and stories are told.  Lots of fun.

Sergio's Birthday

Sergio is a racing fan.  When his wife, Blanca, called to order the cake she wanted a race car.  That was just fine except I had less than 24 hours to make and decorate the cake.  I just love the way it came out. 

The cake is vanilla with Bavarian cream.

Cupcakes for Itzel

These accompanied the cake.  The celebration is for the Mommy and not for the yet to be born baby (Ivana).  I wanted to do something for the baby so I make these as a small gift.  The cake was vanilla, filled with pineapple cream, and topped with Mousseline buttercream.

Baby Shower for Itzel

Carrot cake, all three layers, filled with Pineapple cream.  Two layers are covered in chocolate fondant and the center layer in regular fondant.  This cake kept me up at night.  I had to flip the bottom layer with the 8" diameter on the bottom and the 10" at the top.  I didn't know if the carrot cake would withstand the pressure.  Happily there were no problems.

The Book Worm for Samuel

I've always wanted to make this cake.  Thought it was so darn cute.  I had the chance when our neighbor requested a quick cake for his son's birthday.  Since I do his cakes in exchange for carpentry I got to choose the design. 

The cake is vanilla filled with banana cream and bavarian cream.
