Chi O Cakes

November 9, 2009

Well, the cakes all turned out well and I got them delivered without any disaster which is pretty much a miracle. Transporting cakes even across town usually gives me a nervous breakdown, so transporting them 2 hours was nerve-racking to say the least. I made a red-velvet cake, pumpkin spice cake with maple pecan frosting, pound cake with peanut butter frosting and a chocolate layer cake. You can find the recipe for the red velvet HERE, the peanut cake HERE, and the chocolate cake HERE. I made up the pumpkin spice cake and really, really like how it turned out. I like it even better than THIS pumpkin cake that I made a few weeks ago. It is a perfect Thanksgiving cake so you should try it! Also, all of the decorations were made out of fondant and marzipan and only took me about 3 days. But I have a weird obsession with replicating things in sugar so it was fun for me. Anyways, here are all the pictures. I hope yall try at least one and let me know how it turns out!
