I'm back!

Haven't posted much in a while but it's not because I haven't had much to bake. On the contrary, I've been so busy baking lately that I haven't had time to devote to my blog. My website is still under construction, no thanks to my crazy schedule. But now that I have some time to take it easy, I can finally do my updates.

First off, my friend Alex Almaguer just celebrated his 30th birthday on Oct. 8. A milestone indeed! His wife, Holly, ordered a cake for that celebation and this is what I came up with. Many thanks to the artwork courtesy of the very talented Mark Bachand.
It's chocolate with whipped cream and strawberry filling and I'm glad everyone enjoyed it at Dave & Busters where they had his birthday bash.


Next, I did another birthday cake for the Class of 3000 crew. This one was classic white with whipped chocolate ganache for filling.
Thought this might be the last of the sheet cakes I'll be making because I have decided to simplify my menu for a while. I have decided to concentrate on cupcakes now, for all occasions - be it birthdays, baby showers, weddings, you name it. While I'm still a one woman baking factory, I think this might be easier to manage for now while I'm still splitting my time between animation and BluRuby. Which is also why we're going to re-work my website so that it will be all about cupcakes from now on.

However, I had one last request for a sheet cake. This came from my friend, Jeremy, who happens to be my web guy as well so, how can I refuse??? It's for his 5 year old nephew who was finally allowed to see Star Wars. As a present, this is what we gave him for his big day. It's a 1/8 sheet, classic white cake with whipped cream and strawberry filling. The whole family enjoyed it :)

So there, so long to sheet cakes for now. It's all about cupcakes from now on, folks! Bear with me, please! I'll get back to baking cakes again someday, I promise :)
