Swim, Bike, Run Cake

I love this cake that the mother of my dear friend, ordered for her! Moms are awesome, aren't they? If I was going to make my own birthday cake (which is coming soon hint, hint) this is the cake I would make for me, well except with my name on it!

The cake is Baker's Cakes Signature Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting and is topped with Chocolate Fondant. The running shoes, goggles, and bike helmet are sculpted out of fondant and sugar paste.

I went with plenty of shades of blue to match her favorite: Carolina Blue!

Meredith is an amazing mom to a 1 1/2 year old, works for the university, trains for marathons, bikes with us for fun, and somehow finds time to work on her masters degree! I often wonder how she does it!?! Happy Birthday Mere!

Thanks so much to Juanita at Sweet Things for sharing her triathlon cake designs with me!!!

To keep with the ducky theme of the shower, this Baker's Cakes Signature Chocolate Cake with Double Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting is topped with fondant to create the bath tub. The rubber ducks are sculpted out of crispy rice cereal treats and covered with sugar paste.

Marble Cupcake with Swiss Meringue Buttercream

After a couple little tweaks to yesterday's recipe for marble cake, I definitely nailed it today! It's moist, delicious, and perfectly marbled! I also tried a Vanilla Swiss Meringue Buttercream Frosting. If you prefer a light, buttery, airy frosting, that isn't too sweet and melts in your mouth, Swiss Meringue Buttercream is the frosting for you! I am also loving our new cupcake wrappers from Confectionary House!
