60TH Anniversary

A special 60th Anniversary cake last weekend.  A White tiered cake with a Lemon Cream Filling and frosted entirely with a Swiss Butter-cream all in pretty roses large and small.  Glistening Gumpaste Snowflakes because they were married so close to Christmas… My mother’s father dropped their wedding cake (Oooops!), so I thought I would make them a special one for their 60th.

Love doing Theme Cakes !!

Village Sweets created their first “Make-Up” cake…  woohoooo!  First the cake, a vanilla cake with a Dulce de Leche filling plus a whipped cream filling and I frosted the cake with a smooth Vanilla Butter Cream frosting and topped it all off with a Pretty Pink Fondant covering.  A quilted look with silver Dragées just made it gorgeous, some gum paste make up accessories and voilà this cake was ready to get eaten!

Cuckoo For Trains

Monday was “Train Cake” day.  Another theme cake for Village Sweets.  The plan was carefully thought out and all the little details were fashioned out of gum paste.  The cake flavor was chocolate and it was frosted with a vanilla buttercream.  We made the train in 3 cake pieces which were all covered with fondant.  We think it turned out pretty great for our first “Train Cake”.  (A little note, this cake was made with Splenda rather than the traditional white sugar). Thank you Caroline!

Village Sweets will soon be coming to YOUTUBE….Watch for us!!
