This week's creation is for a celebrant who loves hockey, badminton and loves playing Mafia Wars.
His girlfriend prepared a surprise party for him and ordered this special cake.
Isn't she sweet!
This is an eight (8) layer Butter Pecan Cake with Pecan Italian Meringue Buttercream
and frosted in Chocolate Ganache.
It is pretty yummy I find anyway. I tried two kind of recipes for this cake.
The first one is great but not quite a show stopper.
The second is a White Almond Sour Cream recipe without the Almond Flavor and doubled the Vanilla Flavor.
And then I added 1-1/3 cups chopped pecans.
It turned out great.
The Asian Heritage Scoiety of New Brunswick asked me to make a cake for the
Asian Heritage Month Celebration Opening ceremony
at the Centennial Building in Fredericton.
It is also the association's 10th year anniversary.
The Guests of Honour: His Worship Brad Woodside, Mayor of Fredericton and other government officials.
The theme of this year's celebration is “Celebrating Canadians of Iran Origin".
Please visit the society's wesbite, AHS NB Website, to know more about the festivities.
Here are more close up photos of the cake.
I was excited when I got this project as I have been anxious to make an Angry Bird Themed Cake.
There are too many versions of Angry Birds Cake.
Even this design is not that original really.
Any cake artist around definitely likes to put its own touch on her/his creation.
For one, the clouds, which is actually an effect of an explosion,
I have not seen it done before (or maybe it has been).
Below is my draft which I made using Paint.Net software.
