First year birthday cake + smash cake

By bmichellebakeshop

Hello friends!
I am so so excited to post photos of the favorite cake I have made thus far this year – a sweet little girl’s first year birthday celebration sheet cake plus smash cake (action photo to follow!). Our sheet cakes are HUGE to say the least – 18 by 12 inches + the fact that all our cakes are super tall = a whole ‘lotta cake (serves about 50 people)! I always love a customer who lets me run with the decoration (it was given that the party colors were pink and turquoise). The sheet cake was our signature¬†strawberry ruffle cake – we decorated it with ombre ruffles on the edges, edible turqoise fondant ruffle flowers, and a turquoise inscription. The smash cake tied it all together – 6 inch vanilla cake with American-style vanilla buttercream, frosted in a turquoise ombre pattern, and sprinkled with edible white glitter. Now finally, PHOTOS! :)

Rustic rose wedding cake

Hello friends!
After a brief hiatus from the inter-webs spent filling orders, I am back to show you what we have been working on! A few weeks ago, we made a cake for the friends of a repeat customer. Her friends were an 80 year old couple and the occasion was their wedding day! As if it weren’t exciting enough to have my part in their big day, the newly weds also encouraged me to decorate the cake as I wished.
The cake consisted of one chocolate layer sandwiched between two vanilla layers, all covered with our signature vanilla buttercream frosting. To incorporate their rose wedding theme into the cake, we covered the bottom layer with gorgeous piped buttercream roses, gave the top and middle layer a rustic lined texture, and added additional roses to the base of the top cutting cake. Very pretty and whimsical, no?

Many congrats to the newly married couple! :)
