Cheeta Print Luggage Birthday Cake Housewives of New Jersey Danville KY December 5, 2010

We created this cheeta print luggage piece for a birthday party.  The cake was chocolate with ganache filling and iced with a chocolate buttercream before it was covered in the cheeta print marshmallow fondant. The birthday girl is a fan of Housewives of New Jersey so we created the luggage tag and printed the title of the show on it.

Wizard of OZ cake wins first place

We did it! The Wizard of Oz cake created for the Lexington Children’s Theater 70th Birthday bash cake contest won 1st place. Cindy Simmons and I worked until 4:30 am Saturday morning to put the finishing touches on the Oz cake and at 9:00 am we loaded it into the suv for the nerve racking hour drive to Lexington. The cake as a whole, took about 45 hours to create from start to finish and weighed approximately 80lbs.

The cake was constructed on a free form piece of plywood covered in fondant. The cakes were held in place and a pedestal was created for the top layer out of galvanized water pipe and plywood. All of the characters are made from marshmallow fondant and edible. The tornado or cyclone as it’s referred to in the movie, was created out of rice crispy treats and covered in white chocolate tinted with food coloring. The bottom layer of the cake that represents the Land of Oz is a chocolate cake with a Girl Scout Thin Mint cookie filling and iced with chocolate buttercream. The next layer representing Dorothy’s meeting of the Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion and the Tin Man is a strawberry cake with a fresh strawberry filling, iced with cream cheese frosting. The Emeral City (made from old fashion candy sticks) cake is a spice cake with a fresh apple filling and iced with a cream cheese frosting.

The event generated over $2000 dollars for the theater, not including the proceeds from the silent auction of the cakes. The Oz cake sold for $225.00 and a few others were in the $100 dollar range.

Many thanks to all of the Children’s Theater volunteers who helped us during the event.
