Viola Cake

Viola Cake, originally uploaded by bakers-cakes.

It's must be fate that brought this Viola Cake order to me this week. As a middle school (and elementary and high school orchestra alum) I was able to channel my own middle school orchestra concert experience into creating this Viola Cake! I envisioned the hours spent in the orchestra room that had the vague smell of spit, (I think the trombone guys emptied their excess drool onto the floor) and our sometimes off key and tempo attempts at the classical masterpieces. Yup, I was a dork. Still am.

The cake is Vanilla Buttermilk with Double Chocolate Cream Cheese Buttercream Frosting, topped with Light Chocolate Rolled Fondant.


  1. You are "bangin"! I understand this is current vernacular for "You are fabulous!" The string students were stunned! All the students knew a viola cake would be at the concert. They didn't know it would look EXACTLY like the viola! And yes, the viola players corrected the violin players when they wanted to call it a violin cake. And can we just talk about how wonderfully moist and light the cake was! Ms. Danielle, you "rock" (80's slang)
