Shades of Pink

on March 6, 2014

So I did a few last minute cakes this weekend…and ironically, they were all shades of pinks!  It’s funny how cake themes and colour scheme have a tendency to group together from week to week or month to month!  Here’s a glimpse at what I did this weekend!

The first was a 10″ rosette cake (which I still love regardless of how much the design has been used in the cake world!).  It was half vanilla, half strawberry with a vanilla-almond buttercream.  It was such an honour to do this cake for this lady, as she was one of my grandmother’s dearest friends!

The next one was for one of my daughter’s friends!  We’ve all been taking turns celebrating the big ONE and her mother had the brilliant idea to host a cupcake wars!  Each guest brought 6-12 cupcakes and I was asked to bring a small smash cake that coordinated with the party theme.  I also participated but sad to say, I didn’t win that cupcake war! I think I went too adventurous on the flavour – but I’ll get the crown!  This was a lemon-lavender cake with vanilla-lemon buttercream.

The last pink cake for the weekend was a last minute order again.  They just asked for a square shaped cake for an elderly lady’s birthday and this is what I came up with – something simple yet sweet. This cake was half French vanilla, half strawberry with vanilla buttercream icing and sugar flowers.

Next weekend I have a full line of baby shower cakes – all for little boys! So the themed weekends continue for the moment!

With best wishes for a “sweet” day!
