Hospital fundraiser

Last night, there was a black-tie fundraiser dinner held in support of our local hospital. I was asked to make two cakes for the cake auction. So I made a scrubs cake, along with a stethoscope, scissors, bandages and syringe, all made of either fondant or gumpaste. The cake was chocolate and could feed 20.

I also made a cake to look like the classic board game "Operation." Thought it kind of poked fun at the hospital theme. The cake itself was carrot and was pretty big and could feed about 40.
 I'm wondering what these cakes went for at auction? Stay tuned...

Happy birthday Richard x 2

I made a cake for my cousin and my boyfriend, both cat lovers and both named Richard.

 It was a so-called "naked cake" where there is no icing on the little fondant cats could be seen coming in and out of the layers.

 Bonus: my other first cousin from Texas, Len was in town too. He doesn't have any cats but that's okay.

 The two Richards with their kitty cat birthday cake.

 Happy birthday Richard 1 and 2. You are both terrific guys!

Autumnal retirement

 One of the county correspondents at our local newspaper, The Glengarry News, retired this week.

 The News had a small get-together for her at a local watering hole in Williamstown and I made a cake.

Sue wrote for the paper for some 30 years, covering local council as well as penning her Williamstown column for 20+ years. She definitely will be missed by all.

Drum roll, please

My first ever drum cake! This carrot cake fed 40 party-goers for "baby" Adam's birthday. Apparently the rock 'n' roll drummer was turning 30. The moniker must be an in joke. Hope his party rocked!
