My biggest cake of the year was this one.

The venue was a really cool space that once housed the original Rainier Brewery boiler room. an old building with the tallest ceilings, floor to ceiling windows and the best light. In an area of town that has recently had a rebirth of cool, Georgetown, once was only known for the Boeing field and the industrial section of Seattle.

The cakes: Lemon on top, Tiramisu in the middle and the beloved Coconut on the bottom.

The Tiramisu was a new one for me. I used alternate layers of vanilla and chocolate cakes, each doused with an espresso and Kahlua soak. The filling was a lightly sweetened Mascarpone and Cream. I wanted to really saturate the layers, but I also wanted to keep the cake in cake form and not a mushy mess. so, I hope it was a success.

Happy 2nd Birthday Peps Peeps!

Today, we had a party to celebrate all the cancer and leo birthdays. I attempted the fondant thing once again. Its kind of fun, but I still grapple with the whole weepy humidity issue. They held pretty good, but not perfectly. ah, its all a learning curve.

Vanilla White Cakes with Lemon Frosting.

Up next, a yo gabba gabba cake for Z's 2nd birthday! I am growing more accepting of rolled fondant, especially since YGG figurines are going for $100 over what they are worth!
