I hope all of you had a Happy Halloween! I had way too many cute photos of my family that I thought I had to share them with you! Plus I got the chance to make a fun 3D Pumpkin cake for a client of mine. Her daughter was turning 4 years old and she wanted a fun cake that pulled in both occasions!
The cake was quite yummy inside! The bottom tier was chocolate cake with whipped cream, strawberries & chocolate ganache. The middle tier was pumpkin cake with cinnamon cream cheese frosting & salted caramel. And lastly the top tier was banana cake with chocolate ganache and peanut butter cream cheese frosting.
I hand sculpted each pumpkin and then airbrushed them to make them look more realistic. Next I stacked them and created lots of vines and stems to fill in the gaps. Here are some more close-ups of the cake…unfortunately I didn’t realize they weren’t in perfect focus under I was done with the cake, but at least they show you more details.
These next photos are of my adorable family!
Aren’t they too cute for words! Well, those aren’t the only Halloween photos I have for you…I just had to include these next few photos. All I have to say is “How awesome is my staff!!!” Now sadly, I had a wedding delivery that day and couldn’t dress up or else I would’ve strapped the pirate belt on and jumped in the photo!
I think we can all agree that Octo-mom gets the best costume award! Can you believe how great Louisa looks!
And even my intern dressed up…as a chef of course!
