This cake was a referral from a very good pastry chef friend of mine named Yasmin.  She works with Danny who wanted a Hollywood theme cake for a birthday party.  This is what I came up with.  When I got to Danny's home to deliver the cake his house had been transformed to Hollywood 1936.  He had the red carpet leading into the house with bar tables, candles, and a photographer to take pictures of the guests arriving on the red carpet.  The backyard had a white piano set up, tables with black and white musical motif tablecloths, a screening room for showing a movie and a huge Hollywood sign on the hill.  Everyone was dressed in Tuxes, needless to say he had thought of everything.  The caterer was Scott from NewLeaf Catering and it was great to see him again.
This was an opera cake inside the fondant and decorations.  Love opera cake!!!

I just received this from Danny: 
Oh PAM!!!

I was shocked when you told me the top layer WAS a cake!
These are the kind of cakes i want from now on!

June Birthday!!

THANK YOU SO MUCH PAM! So happy to have you in my circle of friends!!!

This cake and cupcakes were made for a couples cocktail baby shower.  They did not want traditional baby shower fare.  Their colors were dark blue, light blue, dark grey, light grey and lime.  I had a great time making the cupcakes and if you look close you will notice that each one is different.  It was time consuming to make them but enjoyable just the same.  The flavor of the cake was  chocolate mocha crunch and some of the cupcakes were lemon with lemon curd and some were chocolate  with a crunchy center.  Both had vanilla buttercream icing covered with fondant.
