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!!!


  1. I love it - It looks awesome - all of your run, swim, bike sugar items look great!

  2. You did an amazing job on this cake , Danielle! I could not have asked for anything more appropriate for Meredith! She loved it!!! Now I am wondering how I will top this for her next birthday? Thanks again, Danielle!

  3. It was chocolatey, peanut butter yumminess! The goggles looked amazing. I was blown away, and it took me a while to actually cut into it b/c it looked so cool! Even the "M" on the shoes :)

  4. Thanks all! M is for Meredith AND Mizuno ;)

  5. This is the cutest tri cake ever! I have so many friends doing tri's right now and want me to join them. I think I would last 2 minutes!
