Birthday Cake: Samantha!

This is Samantha's 2nd birthday cake. Samantha is the cutest little girl who loves farm animals and books, so that's what her cake is - animals and books.
The cake is a 2-tier double layer cake, with 2 layers of orange cake and 2 layers of raspberry-pomegranate with raspberry/ Bavarian creme filling.

The little piggie ended up looking so sad, I felt bad for him, but it was so cute I decided to keep him that way.

My new obsession is flavored fondant, but I found out the hard way that once the flavoring is added it gets a lot harder to work with. After a lot of trying (and failing!) I found that mixing a little Wilton pre-made fondant in there, the texture will be 100% better to work with.

The little birthday girl with her cake. She loved it!

A couple of seconds after this picture was taken, she leaned in and took a big chomp off "her own" feet.


  1. Wow!!!! The cake looks terrific. I really do think this is your best cake yet!

  2. She LOVED this cake. It was perfect and beautiful and everyone was talking about it. I couldn't believe she ate the feet off if the "cake Sam"! That was hilarious.
