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.

Nurse Themed Cake

This cake was a huge success and I really enjoyed making this one!! My mother-in-law is a pediatric nurse at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and she asked me to make a cake for a friend of hers. This friend was celebrating both her 50th birthday and also just earned herself a masters degree in nursing and the cake was to celebrate both occasions. I knew that there cake would definitely have a nurse theme to it but I was a bit unsure of how to incorporate the degree portion (had to get my creative juices flowing...lol). And here is what I came up with!!
This is a 1/4 sheet pound cake covered in buttercream icing. When I thought of nurse the first few things that popped into my head were; Stethoscope, band-aids, medicine and needles (YIKES!). I didn't make a needle but I did make everything else...lol. Everything is made of fondant except for the pills, they are Skittles! I incorporated the degree information by making a fondant scroll and writing "Congrats on Your Master's Degree Marie" on the little bit that I left unrolled. I would say it turned out a success!! Me being me, I say it should be much neater but my customer was very much satisfied!!!
