2013 catch up

These next 2 cakes were actually made for Christmas Eve 2013, I just haven't taken a moment to post them. If you are from the Toronto and surrounding areas you are well aware of our crazy week leading up to Christmas. I, like many people, had no electricity through our craziest of ice storms that I can ever remember.  Thank goodness I had the cakes baked prior to our lights going out a couple of days shy of Christmas Eve.  The house being cold and no power for mixing up my buttercream to crumb coat the cakes, ugh!, one cake was finished at Mel's house since her power came on the day before mine did, and thanks to my neighbours daughter who didn't lose power through all this allowed me to go by and make my buttercream at her house.
Not to mention I had the whole clan coming over for Christmas Eve dinner and right up to when we got our lights back the afternoon of the 23rd I was in major panic mode. But as always I managed to get the cakes ready for pick up on the 24th and have the house cleaned and prepped for our Christmas Eve feast.  All went well and all flew by like the wind. Another year come and gone!

This first cake was for one of Mel's clients at work which we managed to finish at Mel's place. A birthday cake in blue icing roses with blue and yellow gum paste roses on top.

An 8" vanilla cake filled with vanilla mousse.

Happy Birthday Ang!
