Cake time

I've had the opportunity to make a couple of fun cakes lately. I made this birthday cake for my future sister-in-law, Julie:


She's cute so she deserved a cute cake :) Want to know the best part? That's funfetti cake and frosting under there!

My relief society did an enrichment activity a few weeks ago where they were celebrating the Relief Society's birthday. Anyway, they wanted volunteers to bring a cake decorated for each month of the year. I signed up for October and here is my cake:


That's ganache poured over the top there friends. If you haven't had the delight of trying ganache, it's heavy cream mixed with melted chocolate... how could that be bad? My friend and I were joking someone was going to steal the spider off the top-- and someone did! Don't worry, I got it back.

Hi! I came across this cake on a google image search for funfetti cake images. It is so cute! I linked to it on my last post. I didn't know about funfetti cake until recently, Yum!

When I saw your blog, I thought to myself, I bet this girl is LDS too - and then sure enough in the 2nd paragraph RS and enrichment comes up! Cool!
