This was an order for a Miami Dolphin fan, after my Sunday cake for my class, on Tuesday night I bajed this one – for a birthday. I was really excited to make the cake and see how it turned out. It was a chocolate cake – delicious recipe. Used sour cream and made the batter very silky. Well, it looks cute, even has a fondant helmet! The person that ordered the Miami Dolphin Cake loved and I hope they enjoy the taste as well! It was had to ice he dolphin; next time I would use fondant and make it really smooth.

This week was bit crazy, I started baking last Sunday – my cake for the cake decoration calss. This week as a gift box with fondant. To my surprise, this fondant tates like marshmallow, it was really good. The cake was a Spiced Cocoa-Apple cake – not too sweet but it was great beacuse it balanced the sweet from the icing and fondant. Great cake with coffee! I tried to sell but no luck this time, so just took it to work and they had a ball LOL

This cake looks so pretty and it was a lot of work. Starting by creating all of the little flowers with royal icing and letting them dry for a few days. Then, creating the butterfly with color flow icing and finally making the cake; orange cake. Next, was making more icing; cream cheese buttercream icing. And, finally, decorate the cake and make the basket weave and place the flowers! DONE!!!

This cake recipe is actually called chocolate butter cake, but I also added walnuts, left over from my delicious carrot cake, and a strawberry filling. For the filling, I mixed low sugar red raspberry jam, mascarpone cheese, and homemade heavy whipped cream. The chocolate icing was from the store, but I diluted with some low-fat milk; otherwise it’s too sweet. This cake was very good, but since I used a pan that has a heart shape in the middle, it was quite difficult to flip to top with filling. It was heavy and I had a bit of an accident; you can see that the top of the cake is not perfect. However, the taste was more then perfect!!!
