Birthdays: August and (July)

 Yes it is August and we have another birthday to share. Now, I am into cake, making cake, decorating cake, talking about cake, etc etc. But I must say this summer has been HOT even for Pennsylvania, just hot. Too hot frakly to be baking in a house like mine.

So I caved, well not caved but I just didn’t bake. I work in an ice cream shop – so I decorate ice cream cakes all day long. And its busy so why not get an ice cream cake for the summer birthdays. So here it is, a regular vanilla and chocolate ice cream cake with chocolate crunch in the center.

 And while I am at it, I cannot forget July birthdays either; almost a repeat of my birthday – we have mini gourmet cakes – Snickers and Peanut Butter Cup cakes. YUM!!!

Each one just covered in icing, chocolate, carmel, candy and all kinds of sweet drizzles and topped with nothing other than a cherry! So happy, happy summer birthdays. Stay tuned for another August birthday in a few weeks. Will it be cake, ice cream cake, cupcakes or ???? We’ll just have to wait and see!! So stay cool (if you can) this August and savor the rest of this summer month.

Ice Cream Cake Craze: I scream

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream. As the saying goes, yes we scream….and yes I get ice cream and I eat ice cream but there has been a heat wave and it seems, a craze for ice cream cakes is on the rise, now.

So I have been summoned…I have been “ice cream” caking for the past two weeks. My part time job has now turned into a full fledged all day-5 day-cake fest.

Wish me luck this summer as I cake away and decorate, oh and before the cakes melt too ;-). Yes we can’t have that.

So, I have not vanished I have just been busy caking in another sector :-). We hope to be back on track very, very soon.
