My intentions of this blog are to of course showcase my talents but also to encourage others to bake! I want to show people that you do not have to attend a culinary arts school (if you do, that is obviously great!) to be successful in the baking business. You do not need super expensive equipment or a large oven to get wonderful and professional looking results. I have been in this business for a few years and I have learned so much without taking one class! And I want to share with you what I have learned.

Casio Inspired Birthday Cake

My mom's birthday was last week and of course I had to make her a birthday cake! She absolutely loves making trips to the casino and when she's not there or working, she plays her casino games on facebook. Yes, I know, she has a problem...lol. So I wanted to incorporate that into her cake somehow and since I waited until the day of I had to some up with something quick! And here is what I did...
I decided to make a simple 8 inch round pound cake covered in yellow buttercream icing. I incorporated the slot machine to the front of the cake, as you can see. And simply wrote happy birthday mom withe some red roses on the top. I added some yellow fondant circles as those coins you get at the machine and put a few on top of the cupcakes. She was really excited when she saw the cake and loved the taste even more!! I have to admit, this really was one of my best tasting cakes. I honestly ate about 1/3 of the cake myself...lol.
