Sweet 16 Cake Artist Style

Just finished a cake for a girl’s Sweet 16 Birthday.  She is an artist, so a funky artsy style cake was the perfect theme.  Her favorite color is Pink, so beautiful colors of pink Fondant and frosting were used for the details of this luscious cake!  The perfect embellishments were gum paste paintbrushes, an easel (not all edible but kitchen grade), a paint board and a canvas with the birthday girl’s b-day announcement.  Thank you Micheal and HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANTONIA!!

A Perfect Day For Baking!

Feels like Fall has definitely arrived.  A little chilly this morning, and seeing I was up very early this morning and the clouds were looming,  I figured it was the perfect day for some baking.  It was a day for Village Sweets to work in the test kitchen and come up with a few frostings that are not sweet but have definite taste.  Buttercream is usually our choice, made of 100% good old fashioned butter, not the artificial stuff.   But it is still on the sweet side.  So the work begins…

7 hours later… I made some vanilla cupcakes, strawberry cupcakes and mocha cupcakes.  I prepared 2 different buttercreams, a swiss style and a cooked style.  I love them both. They are light, and airy and best of all THEY AREN’T TOO SWEET!  DELISH!
