Luca's Baptism Cake

SweetLee Made for Luca's baptism! Bottom tier is chocolate cake with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream, and top tier was lemon cake with lemon & lime curd swiss meringue buttercream … curd was so good, I licked the bowl clean! ;-) I still have leftover curd and if it weren't so darn hot out, I'd make french macarons!

Cutest "little" boy ever!!! He has been affectionately nicknamed Dough Boy by his own Gong Gong! ;) Almost traded him for a Pandora bracelet! ;p

Sushi anyone?

Preston's 9th BDay cake request was sushi - california rolls … This one made me nervous, how was I gonna make it?! After much googling, I opted to make the california rolls out of candy. Thank goodness for Bulk Barn! I found candy that resembled all the ingredients for the roll: crab meat, avocado, cucumber, rice, and fish eggs! I was so thrilled!!!

Joey had a friend sleepover and she was eager to help out, so I had the girls make the rolls. I made rice krispy treats to fill up half of the roll and then had the girls cut up the candy to fit the other half of the roll. Used icing to fill up the empty spaces and topped with white sprinkles (rice) and red sugar (fish eggs). The girls did a beautiful job!

Cake itself was one layer of vanilla and one layer of chocolate, glued together with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream. So glad it turned out!
