Playful Tigers

On Saturday, we had the opportunity to make a cake for little Sophie in San Diego.  She kept insisting that she wanted a tiger cake and when asked if it was because of Tigger in Winnie the Pooh, she gave us a blank look.  I was then pretty sure they were tigers she saw at the San Diego Zoo.

So keeping the tigers 'looking like tigers' and not like Tigger, this is the cake we came up with. Guess what was the only thing little Sophie ate off the cake? Yup, the tigers lol!

Cake was vanilla with a vanilla buttercream filling.

Flower Garden

After a long winter, we look forward to Springtime with the same yearning of a child longing to buy candy displayed in the candy store window. We put away our thick coats, bring out our spring clothes and buy a bunch of vegetable and flower shrubs to fill our pots and planters.

These cake balls were made for a spring party to celebrate the passing of winter and the beginning of color.
