April must be a big birthday month.  Three birthday cakes this weekend.  I’ve already delivered two and have one more to make tomorrow.

The first cake was for a friend’s wife.  Her birthday is today.  This cake is a super moist strawberry cake with vanilla butter cream icing.  The decorations are all edible – although not all that palatable.  The flowers are a mixture of fondant and gum paste.  It’s the gum paste the ruins the taste but it is a necessary element in some decorations.  My friend called shortly after he picked up the cake to let me know it was a fine breakfast food!

My second cake of the day was for a disco themed 40th birthday.  It is pound cake with vanilla butter cream icing.  Yes, it is a HUGE cake – 12″.  Actually, this is 2 recipes of my pound cake.  Hope someone has a sweet tooth!  Black squares on the dance floor are fondant.  Colored squares are painted butter cream.  The dancer is fondant and gum paste but this one isn’t edible because of the construction elements.  Just a FYI – black fondant turns your teeth green.
