Minnie Mouse Hot Pink Cake

This client found me on my FB page and contacted me.  We made an appointment and we met.  She showed me a couple of pictures of what she wanted and I designed this cake for her from two that she had showed me.  The bottom tier is Red Velvet with creamcheese cream filling.  the top tier and the Mickey hat are vanilla loaf with coookies and cream buttercream filling. I wasn't home when the client picked up the cake, but my husband said that she was thrilled with how it came out.   I also made 500 cupcakes, 25 vanilla and 25 chocolate.  They were decorated half in hot pink icing, ears and bow, and the other half was covered in red icing with only ears.  I forgot to take pictures of the cupcakes.

Mickey 1st Birthday Cake and Cookies

I have to start by saying that I love this client. Although we met, well, through cake, lol!   I really don't recall how she found me; on my web or blog , Facebook? I'm really not sure... When she comes to pick up her cakes we just talk and talk. She has amazing taste when it comes to parties and I love how she explains exactly what she wants. She loves having parties at her house,  and having the perfect cake or goodies is essential for her all  of her events.  We talked about what she may want for Halloween, Xmas and other future things in her life.  I just love her energy.  Anyway, this cake is completely edible.  The Mickey hat, top and bottom tiers are marble cake iced and filled with buttercream icing and then covered with MMF.  The Mickey I hand drew and painted with edible color.  He's so cute! I really enjoyed making this cake a lot.  Love the color combo of baby yellow, sky blue and lime green.  When she picked it up she said: I am never disappointed with your work, music to my ears!  I also made chocolate covered Oreos in those three colors.  Thanks for looking!

Cars Cake, Cookies and Cupcakes

The client that asked for this cake goes all out for her little boys birthday.  She wanted a tall Cars cake for his second birthday. She also asked for two cookies bouquets and cupcakes spelling out "Happy Birthday"  She gave me all the cars to place on the cake.  When I went to deliver the cake and goodies to her house, she was really really happy and I was amazed at the level of decoration for her party and how she had turned her backyard into a race track.  The table where the cake was going to be placed was gorgeous.  Hopefully she will send me pictures of it.  The flavor for this cake wash Leelee's Vanilla Specialty with dulce de leche filling.
