The Bomb Diggity!

One of my best friend’s birthday is today!  She’s sampled several of my cakes but her favorite is strawberry cake with cream cheese icing.  I don’t particularly enjoy working with cream cheese icing.  I just can’t seem to get it smooth like buttercream.  But, because it is her favorite I relented this time and used the cream cheese.  Myrene help with this one because once again I couldn’t smooth it.  The seeds and leaves are fondant and the chocolate wrap is Belgian chocolate fondant.  The writing around the side, which you can’t see, says “Happy Birthday to the Bomb Diggity”.  That’s one of Karena’s favorite sayings.  

Myrene and I make our fondant instead of purchasing commercially made fondant.  Premium chocolate is used in our chocolate fondant which gives it a rich chocolate taste.  Our basic fondant, while typically vanilla, can be flavored and colored almost any way imaginable.  We use quality ingredients found in our local shops.        

Keepin’ it sweet!
