This month my much (much!) older brother turns 40 and my fabulous sister-in-law decided to throw a surprise party for him. In addition to making some treat bags full of chocolate chip cookies and peanut butter popers, I also got the honour of making the cake. The top and bottom layers are chocolate cake with vanilla butter cream. The middle layer is vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream. The cake went perfectly with the party decorations and the sparklers really set it off while we sang.
My other project this week was to replicate a favourite toy for a birthday boy. Apparently he's in love with fighter planes and I was asked to make the air craft carrier. His Mom was going to buy some toy jets to place on the cake later. The cake is vanilla with a caramel filling.
I baked my first cookie at the age of 5, and have been in love ever since. The smiles on people's faces when they taste my creations is what keeps my passion alive!
