I received a call from a cutie pa-tootie client, Jazz. who asked if I can make her a heart cake. (Heart cake, sure! Easy... Sometimes I am down for easy, considering all of the crazy cakes I have, some of which I have YET to post.) Well, of course, it wasn't a heart shaped cake. It was a cross section of the heart for her Science Fair project. Then, her equally adorable mom, Gwen, got on the phone and told me it is her daughter's last year in school and she wanted her to go out with a "bang"!
So, here it is! I have to admit, it is one of the weirdest cakes I have EVER made. And equally as weird- I totally fell in love with it. It was so cool and gross. I had a very hard time letting it go. Inside was my "Tropical" flavor: yellow butter cake, filled with pineapple, coconut and Italian meringue buttercream.
The very next day, Gwen gave me a buzz and told me the cake won FIRST place at the Fair! I was SOOOOO excited to hear the news!
