Plumeria (Frangipani) Birthday Cake

Pecan Spice Cake with Maple Buttercream Filling

A rare buttercream cake – I usually prefer the clean lines of fondant, especially in tropical humidity.  But, buttercream was requested – plus, it’s been pretty cool and dry lately, so that eased my mind!

Gumpaste plumeria flowers dusted with Cosmos-pink matte dust.  It’s hard to tell from the photographs, but the base buttercream is a slightly more vibrant green than the paler swirls.  I was really quite pleased with how the flowers turned out – and I can’t believe it has taken me this long to make them for the first time.  They’re my favorites, and I foresee many future uses of plumeria on my cakes. 🙂

Boxed and ready to go. I added an extra blossom after the first round of photos. 🙂

“Just a Sunday” Cake

April 2013

My husband had to work on a Sunday, so I made a cake for him to take in to share with his coworkers.  Because, well, that’s what I do. 🙂  Piped buttercream swirls.

I should really list this kind of thing on my resume and highlight it in interviews… guaranteed job offers.
