2 Chix in the Mix

Birthday Weekend

Wow, what a week!  Both my neighbors and my good friends had daughters with birthday celebrations on Saturday.  Gabrielle turned 13 on Friday.  Her folks picked out her cake and I think they made a great choice.  Gabrielle likes animal print and bright pink so this was perfect for her.  The cake is vanilla with chocolate buttercream filling and a vanilla buttercream covering.  The decorations are fondant.  The zebra stripes war painted on the fondant. 

Hailee turned 19 on Thursday.  She requested root beer cake but the design was up to me.  I had seen pictures of this type of topsy-turvy cake and wanted to try it so this was a great opportunity.  The bottom tier is root beer cake with root beer icing.  To please everyone at the party, the top layer is marble cake with vanilla buttercream.  The flower stems are piped buttercream and the flowers are fondant. 

Funny story here – when Rob first saw the cake I was delivering it to Hailee’s family.  He thought in the transport that something had happened and the cake had shifted.  Then, as others were arriving they made the same comments.

 Keepin’ it sweet!
