Swiss Lemon Meringue Cake

How come I never made swiss buttercream before?

I am amazed how delicious it turned out to be!  I dont think im going back to regular buttercream now... Love to explore around the web and search different buttercream recipes, still have a lot to experiment.

Father's Day Tire Cake

Made this gorgeous carrot cake for a special father and friend for Father's Day.

My client wanted a mechanic themed cake, her husband is the mechanic, ideas came to mind right away, that was the easy part, the hard part was to made them real... took me about a week to complete the car, tools, and the mechanic, the first doll i made was too fragile, i had to come up with a better structure, after watching some youtube videos i kinda figured it out... 


The hardest part of all was to find how to add the car to the cake without make the cake collapse, the car was made with rice krispies and fondant, at the end it got too heavy, that i needed to develop a way to add the mechanic underneath... lot of work but very challenging! I really enjoyed it!

Chocolate Marble Ganache Cake

Learned how to cover a cake with ganache, never did this before, I thought ganache was so hard to make, I was completely wrong!! Its easier than making buttercream actually!

Bought this Clean and Simple Cake Design class from craftsy.com and performed my best square cake possible, I remember the first square cake I did, it was awful! Looked like a blob...
