So I’ve gotten a couple complaints from the three people who apparently are checking this blog that I haven’t been updating. And guess what. They’re right. I really suck at updating. I probably really have no business having a blog if I can’t keep it up to date, but it’s just so much easier to post pictures on Facebook. So for more consistent updates, check out my Facebook page – Denise Does Desserts!
But I guess that’s still no excuse…so here are some pictures of a few of the things I’ve worked on this summer…
This was a wedding cake I did for a wedding in San Jose…I was just casual acquaintances with the bride and groom, but it turned out I knew about a third of the guests at the wedding!
The bride actually asked me to do 2 cakes – a 2-tier red velvet cake and a single carrot cake. As I recall, the cakes were for the family and the rest of the guests were served another dessert.
The bride made the cake toppers – they were sooo cute!
The carrot cake
I believe the day I was making these cakes was actually National Donut day. I think I must have had too many cake scraps because I decided that while I was making a wedding cake, I had to make donuts, too!
That was really probably not the smartest choice I could’ve made that day. But those donuts were pretty darn good!
And then awhile later, I was trolling the food blogs and saw that Smitten Kitchen had made root beer cupcakes – something that I had been meaning to do for about a year…So I HAD to jump on that bandwagon…
And then there were the baby shower cakes and a wedding cake that I had to make for the same weekend…my apologies for the quality of the picture…my phone was all I could manage as far as documenting. I think each of those was a different flavor: red velvet with cream cheese, carrot cake with cream cheese, chocolate with mocha buttercream, and a vanilla cake with a mango curd…maybe…I actually don’t remember now.
So while I was making those 4 individual cakes, I was also working on a 3-tier wedding cake…this cake in fact:
Especially the Lego “bride”…
So that takes us up to the end of July…I did one more major cake, but I promise to do a full post on that one in the near future.
