Happy Sweet 16 Audre...

Grooms Cake.

The groom likes baseball and fishing and is an agriculturist. The bride likes to knit and is a big Twins fan...this is what I came up with. Plus some baseball themed cupcakes on the side. BTW, the flavor is vanilla and chocolate cake with cookies and cream frosting.

Happy Birthday Zeo and Kevin.

For my older sons and his roommate and bestfriends birthday....
 This is a Blue Hawaiian - a coconut rum cake with a Blue Hawaiian cocktail mixed into the buttercream (Blue curacao, rum, pineapple juice and coconut cream)
 This is a spicy Aztec- from Warren Brown's Cake Love, a almond flavored cupcake with cornmeal, almond powder, cocoa nibs and honey. Topped with a dark chocolate ganache and chopped homemade spicy almond brittle.

And the creme de la creme - a mix of Surly Coffee Bender beer and Jameson Irish whiskey with cinnamon and cayenne in a chocolate cake, topped with a Jameson and maple syrup frosting and spicy candied bacon.
