Happy Birthday Shaku!!!!

Well, it's been an interesting week.  We got snowed in twice which threw off my entire routine.  For the first snow, I went to my mom's house to hang with her and the puppies.  I brought all my baking stuff with me so I could make by boss' 50th birthday cake.  We decided to surprise her at her favorite lunch place for her birthday.

I wanted to do something different and slightly over the top, so I did a whimsical cake.  I stacked 2 9 inch cakes on top of an 8 inch cake, then carved it down to taper it.  I made black icing by adding black icing coloring to chocolate buttercream.  Then, I made fondant accents and placed them all over the cake.  It was a hit!

This is what was happening outside while I was inside baking!!!

Oh, and by the way, I was featured this week on a really cool blog...check it out!!!  Cute Cupcakes All the Time
