Thanksgiving Cake & One More December Cake

I told you guys I would probably be posting cakes out of order. I finally got my Thanksgiving cake out of the trusty ole 35mm. Again, hats off to my Executive Sous Chef (he totally deserves a raise!) for helping with all of the small details. This cake was a two layered red velvet, filled with cream cheese filling , iced in white chocolate ganache & covered in fondant. All of the decorations are either fondant, modeling chocolate or gumpaste.  Boy, we learned a lot from this cake!

This was a last minute cake we made for my Mom & Pop-in-law. They were hosting a dinner for their church (where he is the Pastor) for Christmas. Mom wanted poinsettias but sadly the humidity was our enemy that week & we couldn't get anything to dry. I didn't have time (or energy) to do anything fancy; however, it was made with the same amount of love as all of the others!

I also made a gingerbread train that same week but will not post those pictures as the icing wouldn't set & it ended up very losided!

Well, that's all for now. Again, Thanks for looking!
