Vanilla Bean Cake (featuring homemade Big Island vanilla extract!) with Mango Curd Filling

I loved making gumpaste plumeria for a birthday cake earlier this year, so when I was called upon to make a friend’s birthday cake – who loves plumeria – my inspiration was obvious.  One of her favorite colors is purple, so I went with a lavender buttercream with white trim.  Classic frangipani colors of white with a yellow interior.  Perfectly tropical!

Casablanca Prom Cake

Casablanca Prom Cake

May 2010

Of course I was involved in planning the prom at the high school where I taught in Florida!  Instead of opting for catered dessert at the venue, the kids all wanted one of my cakes.  For this one, the dance’s theme was Casablanca – 1940s Hollywood glamour meets Morrocco.  Fondant paisleys and tassels, Moroccan and Arabic-inspired forms, and bright colors that matched the theme decor.
