Cousins and cakes!

So this week I will be working on two cakes that I am pretty excited about. I sketched out general ideas for both. One is for my two little boy cousins who love Star Wars, so naturally lego star wars was the first thing that popped into my head. My general vision for this cake is to have the cake be shaped like a lego block, with a smaller one on top. The Star Wars logo on one of the legos and then of course fondant/gum paste lego men in the shape of the characters, complete with light sabers!

The second cake is for my 4 girl cousins. They told me they wanted something really girly, but fun and cute. Ok, so right away I think a pink or purple cake with zebra striping on the side, and maybe roses or a bow on top? Complete of course with lots of cake sparkles and possibly some luster dust.

Photos of those cakes should be up sometime after next weekend.

In the meantime, if you have some extra time on your hands, check out my good friend Lauren's website Dolce Designs. She is currently taking classes at The French Culinary institute in New york, and she has some sick skills without the classes, and the classes are just taking her skill level above and beyond. She is awesome.
