I recently had an order for a Transformers Optimus Prime birthday cake for a 5 year old. At first I had so many different ideas about what could be done, and ultimately I decided to go with a full body shaped cake. This entire creation is all cake and all edible. The cake was chocolate with a whipped vanilla marshmallow frosting. This cake was definitely a learning experience.. But all in all I am happy with the outcome.
Since I have become the dessert lady, I wanted to make something for a good friends bridal shower. The only thing was that I had to transport whatever I made on a 5-6 hour train ride down to San Diego. Cake balls were the perfect thought. These were made with lemon cake and cream cheese frosting and then colored chocolate candy coating. The theme of the bridal shower was Breakfast at Tiffany's. Once again, the cake balls were a huge hit. People have been telling me how much they crave them. It's always nice to hear that kind of thing.
I have gotten a little behind on posting pictures of my creations lately. These were cake balls that I made for a friends baby shower. The color of the picture is not great.. the cake balls were a soft pink, not this weird salmon looking color the picture shows. The cake was strawberry cake with a cream cheese frosting and chocolate candy coating. I added some pearl sprinkles to add a little something to them. They were quite the hit. Cake balls/pops are the new thing right now. I have seen them done in so many different ways. It will be a fun and exciting new fad.
