Twins 10th Birthday Cakes-Puppy and Soccer Cakes

     Friends of ours have twins, Sammy and Kevin, that's turning 10 this weekend.  To celebrate I made a soccer and puppy cake.  

     The puppy cake is my double chocolate cake with dark chocolate ganache filling.  Sammy's favorite colors are aqua and pink so we incorporated those colors into the cake.  The cake has a pink dog collar around it.  This is the first time I made a 3D fondant dog.  I think he turned out rather cute! 

     Kevin's cake is a vanilla cake filled with vanilla buttercream.  His favorite colors, blue and green are well represented here.  This is also the first time I did a 3D soccer ball.  Happy birthday Sammy and Kevin!

40th Birthday Cake

     My best friend was turning 40 this week so I made this shopping bag cake for her. The cake has 3 2-layer sections. The bottom tier is double dark chocolate cake with orange-Grand Marnier buttercream, the middle layer was a vanilla cake with raspberry chambord buttercream and the top layer was cherry cake with a cherry kirsch buttercream.
Sorry for the poor quality photo, I have a 2 year old who always seems to find my camera, get the lens cover off and put his fingers all over it!

     Can you tell the birthday girl loves martini's, make-up and shopping??
