Sweets & S’morsels is seeing “green”

Just a little teaser to keep you thinking about what we have baked up – how and why?

Yes we’ve baked up a special treat for a special birthday- Not Saint Patrick’s birthday but a near and dear birthday here at Sweets and S’morsels (family).

Here are a few more views to keep you “seeing green” – we will return Thurday with a full post on this lucky charm. Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!

....shades of green....

....and confetti clovers....

Okay so here is the real scoop on this “green thing” well it was Pat’s birthday – No not Saint Patrick, my step-dad, Pat! Yes his 78th birthday was yesterday March 17th. And well, being that I am the cake hobbiest in the household and family it was surely my duty to bake up a treat that he would appreciate. Rewind to February and we all saw my attempt at “Conversation Heart” cupcakes but I had invested in some heart shaped pans and I knew right away what kind of lucky cake Pat would recieve for his special day. Well the froogal queen that I am, I attempted this venture with one little heart pan (kinda poetic too I might add) anyway. I leterally put all heart into this and well the final product……

Happy St. Patricks 'Birthday"!

The cake is three “mini” 6 inch heart shaped pans by Wilton – chocolate cake with a Wilton Whipped Buttercream Icing. Using a large round cake board I set the three hearts end to end with some extra cake for the stem and voila’ a shamrock appreared. Completed with green trim border and shamrock confetti this cake made Pat smile and he really appreciated the work and effort. But I was glad to do it. I love to play with cake and bake it is fun, exhausting and fulfilling all in one. I am the cake hobbiest in the home so it is now my call of duty to bake for each birthday that comes along.
