Hubby's 30th Birthday!

Soo I have officially slacked off again with my blog! Great thing is have been busy, bad thing my blog has suffered. So I am going to work backwards starting today to get caught up yet again. Since today is my husband's 30th birthday I decided to talk about his cake and go back from there. So I have a huge wedding and baby shower this weekend so I couldn't give my hubby another party like last year so I decided to keep it simple and make a cake and surprise him at his job.

So I asked him what flavor and theme he wanted.. of course he said Amaretto (which has been his favorite flavor since he tried it) but he surprised me with the theme..Superman. I say, "Superman? Really??" and he says, "yes Superman!". So Superman it is.. I made a mini 2 tier cake (5 and 7 inch rounds) covered in blue fondant. The one thing I did differently was I made Swiss Meringue Buttercream for the first time.. and boy let me tell you..it is sooo freaking DELICIOUS!!! No lie! All family cakes will be made with this buttercream from now on and I will offer it to my clients now. It takes some work to make, but it is soo worth it. It has silky smooth texture and its not overly sweet..it just melts in your mouth. And I don't even like buttercream so that is saying something!

Back to the cake..so I made some stars, hand molded 30 and a the superman logo to on the cake. Nice and simple the way my hubby is:) He loved it so I am happy. Now off to make cookies, cake pops, and etc.. for this wedding.


Peace & Blessings
