I have been meaning to write about this cake I made last week. It is a birthday cake I made for longtime friends Colleen and Keith. They are twins who lived right down the street from me growing up. Needless to say, I have known them since kindergarten, riding on the same bus and being in each other’s classes through elementary school and up. Colleen is one of my closest friends. I miss the days of walking to her house in a snow storm when school was cancelled. Or watching Dirty Dancing and/or Grease every weekend. Or walking to the Korner Kitchen after school for chicken finger dinners. I know, we were such wild and crazy teens.
When Keith’s wife Erin started to plan their (supposed to be) surprise 30th birthday party, I jumped at the opportunity to make a cake for them! I wanted to make something that was gender neutral so my original thought was to make it an 80’s theme cake. When I started decorating, it evolved into what you see here.
The “30” is edible, made from a chocolate mold. The cake is half chocolate, half vanilla filled and frosted with buttercream. I used a combination of fondant and buttercream for the decorations.
the party was a good time and it was nice to get out and be with friends.
Hope you enjoyed checking out this cake! I have 2 very exciting ones to make in a couple of weeks and I can’t wait to get working on them. Be sure to look out for them!
