Henna Cake

Today's cake was inspired by a henna tattoo design I saw recently. Chocolate cake with milk chocolate frosting, teal accent buttercream...

Second Verse, Same as the First!
I made a cake for another friend the following day and wanted to try the henna tattoo art again.... So I did!!

Not all cakes...

So we have a lot of birthdays at my day job... I don't always bring in cakes since I'd go broke bringing in 100 cakes over the course of a year, but many people tend to order cakes for folks in their departments or their friends, etc...

This week someone ordered a cake for Susan, but Susan doesn't eat refined sugar or flour. I told this to the guy who ordered the cake, but he insisted on having a cake. I like Susan and genuinely feel people should get treats on their birthdays whenever possible. Preferably treats they will enjoy...

So, in addition to the cake, I made her a cup o' fruit.... Cause honestly, who doesn't like strawberries and apples, etc...? She loved it and was thrilled for the new mug as well....

Monster Cake

No.... Not a huge cake; a cake that looks like a monster.

It's not often I get much direction for how a cake should be decorated. I usually get "just however you think is best" or some variation thereof. Don't get me wrong - I like that my customers have enough faith in me to come up with something lovely, but that's a lot of pressure! :-)

Every once in a while a customer will have a very clear idea of what they want... Jillian even had a sketch! She wanted her 13th Birthday confection to be strawberry cake with buttercream. I added a strawberry gelee to the layers for some extra zing!

Her sketch even indicated what candies were to be used... I was happy to oblige! See guys? A woman who knows what she wants!!
