While I admit this is not your typical birthday cake (dumpster-diving for ham hocks) it DID meet the client's expectations when she ordered it for her aunt's 50th birthday! Sometimes it's best not to ask too many questions..... Although the request was for a dumpster, complete with a ham hock (the fish bones were a last-minute detail that just seemed to go with the overall theme) and a replica of her aunt..."and make her look dirty!"... being the final request, this was an immensely fun cake to make. Just to add a touch of class (if that's possible with this cake) it was a champagne-flavored cake with champagne buttercream.

Wow....two posts in one day....I'm getting ahead of myself (or just creating more work?) Anyway, I just delivered this cake to a wedding out in Cayucos, a beautiful little seaside town just north of Morro Bay on the Central Coast. There's nothing like a deep blue ocean, sand and sun to make a wedding day absolutely was no exception. The cake was lemon, with lemon and raspberry fillings, and real flowers between the tiers. Congratulations Crissy and Ryan, a truly beautiful couple.


Labor Day weekend is just around the corner, and if you happen to be up in Paso Robles enjoying some wine-tasting, then plan on stopping by Eberle Winery who will be hosting their first annual Wedding Expo, Sunday, September 5th.

This cake was delivered today up in beautiful Cambria...a green velvet cake (yes..I know it's not St. Paddy's day!) with an Italian Meringue Buttercream finish and lots of gorgeous butterflies. The butterflies flew all the way up from Australia just to be on this cake!!! Chris and Stacy, I hope you have a beautiful day and a wonderful life together.
