Flower Cakes

I recently made two cakes for a luncheon honoring a baby blessing.

The yellow cake was a 6" butter cake. The decoration is buttercream around the sides, whipped cream on top, and buttercream accents around fresh berries.

The cake was 4 layers of butter cake and 3 layers of filling: strawberries and cream, boysenberries and cream, and raspberries and cream.

The pink cake was a 9" chocolate cake. Other than the cake flavor, it was the same as the yellow cake.

This one went quickly. Berries, cream, and chocolate is a very nice combination.


  1. Those cakes are seriously gorgeous. Please tell me you do wedding cakes. I may need you in a few years.

    And.. I don't know if you remember me. Nicole.. went to church with you a few years ago. I found your blog through Karl (Kaahl) from his cousin who I am friends with. Please stop in and read if you get the chance:

    Talk to you soon!

  2. Thank you! I'll reserve a place in my (nonexistant) wedding calendar just for you.

    I have a terrible memory where people are concerned, but I'm glad to be reintroduced! I'll stop by and check out your blog. :)

  3. Oh please invite me to your nex luncheon. These cakes are so beautiful and look like they taste even better.

  4. Having eaten some of the cake, I can tell you that they were, indeed, fantastic.

  5. :o I didn't know about this!! I'm going to read this diligently and lust after all those sweet things. Man...looks good. And is the Cake of Death thing an Eddie Izzard reference by change???

  6. It IS an Eddie Izzzard reference! I knew you could be counted on to get it. :)

    "But you said death!...well, alright. You're lucky we're Church of England!"
