Fun With Cake!

I've been having fun trying new caking techniques this summer. Here are a few new fun things I've played with while learning from a few of the best, while also having fun in Vegas (although not so fun in August when the temp is 119 at 7pm)! But first things first- I must pay homage to the great Bobby Flay and his wonderful Burger Palace that always requires a stop before starting any Vegas trip! My favorite on the menu- the awesome Brunch Burger! Go There. Eat It. LOVE IT!
Mom's Classic Burger "crunchified"
On to cakes!! I always love seeing one of my favorites, Lauren Kitchens of Fancy Cakes by Lauren. She is amazing and always so fun to visit with and learn from! Of course, we had to make a pineapple pina colada cake!
 I loved when someone asked me at the pool, where to get the pineapple drinks!
I didn't make this cake, but fully intend to make a version of it soon! I was so impressed when I saw it and the creators were even more impressed that I actually recognized that the photos were the original posters for the Tiki Room at Disneyland when the park first opened. Ya, we do Disney well in this house! What a fun idea for a luau cake! I even love the wafer paper lei!
 It was so much fun meeting Martha Hebert and Becky Guidry of Sweet Southern Ladies Designer Cakes! I got to spend an afternoon with them and they were great to listen to and watch and even better to work with hands on!
Zane Beg of The Sweet Life is definitely a creative mastermind! I loved making this adorable mushroom cake with him! How fun is that!?! Would be so cute with a tinkerbell or woodland fairy theme, maybe even a smurf which was how he came up with the idea!

and yes- it was 119 degrees at almost 7pm while we were there! Absolutely face melting hot! Thankfully only part of one of my cakes melted on the 6 hour drive home!
