December Cakes

It's me again. I am posting three cakes that I made for my Mom to give as Thank You gifts to her doctors & the staff at her apartment building. I have a Thanksgiving cake to post, but sadly it is trapped in my 35mm camera so as soon as I finish taking the 11 photos left on the roll I will post that cake.

The first cake was for her General Practioner. It was a yellow cake with buttercream icing covered in fondant with gumpaste accents.

This next cake was for the staff at the apartment building where she lives. Again, this is a yellow cake with buttercream icing covered in fondant with fondant accents. My Executive Sous Chef made the bow and, as always, helped me with the logostics.

Lol, I just realized that I forgot to remove the tissue from the bow before I took the picture. Oh well, still a pretty cake & I promise, the bow stayed fluffy when I took out the tissue.

I really do not like to duplicate cake designs because I like for each cake to be unique; however, I made these three cakes in one week while working full time and, as a result, I made the first cake again with a few adjustments. This cake was for my mom's Nephrologist.

And because the nurses there are super nice & always treat my mom with respect I made a few extra treats for each one of them. My grandmother sent me a few books on candy making when she found out I was designing cakes so I thought I would put them to good use & made each nurse a candy bar with their name on it.

And then wrapped them up in individual boxes.

Well, Thank You for looking! I will hopefully post my Thanksgiving cake soon.
