50th Birthday Cake

This cake was made for a gentleman celebrating this milestone birthday, visiting from Italy. His favourite Milano soccer team's logo and colours added special meaning to this cake. The soccer ball is made of vanilla cake with espresso buttercream, whereas the base tier was chocolate cake wtih vanilla buttercream filling.

Topsy-Turvy House Cake

A good friend of ours held a summer bbq last month, and is hoping that it becomes an annual tradition. He and his fiancee requested a fun, whimsical cake, that related to their house, which they are selling. This is what resulted of this request! It is a three tier (the chimney is cake too!) topsy-turvy cake with chocolate and vanilla cake layers and oreos 'n cream buttercream. Once we got to the party, it was quite surprising to see that some of the details of the house, such as the front door, planters and stone path leading to the door, were amazingly similar to what they have upgraded on the house!
