my topsy turvy experience

Almond cake with almond buttercream
 It's been a long time since I've created a wedding cake...8 years to be exact.  :-s

In July, a friend of mine asked me to make her a topsy turvy wedding cake.  Of course I said yes...although I had never made a topsy turvy cake before.  I was uber nervous!  Just thinking about the words 'topsy turvy' made my tummy go topsy turvy! 

I scoured the world wide web and found an excellent tutorial from my sweet and saucy.  Suprisingly the cake was quite easy to make!  The bride and groom loved it and I received so many props from the guests!  This was also my first time making fondant roses.  I watched a whole bunch of youtube videos but found that this tutorial was the easiest to follow. 

Chocolate cake with chocolate ganache filling
I also made a chocolate birthday cake for a friend's friend.  The birthday girl is a tap dancer and my friend had asked me to add a purple tap shoe on top of the cake.  No offence to all the lovely tap dancers out there but tap shoes are not very sexy shoes.  So I made a different dance shoe instead and used disco dust from Flour Confections for the decorations on top of the cake. 

There are a few more confections I've created the past few weeks I need to tell you about...hopefully when the girls go to sleep tonight, I'll add another post.  I know...I suck at blogging.  I need to win the lottery so I can just blog and bake all day!  #wishful thinking  :-(
