Two Brothers, Two Cakes and one Party

These cakes were made for two special brothers who were celebrating their big days with one fantastic party.  The Mom let each boy choose the theme of their cake.  The older brother requested a Basketball cake, which was vanilla cake with chocolate fudge filling.  It has buttercream icing and fondant accents.

The younger brother requested a Mario Kart cake.  This cake was a chocolate cake with vanilla creme filling.  It has buttercream icing and fondant accents.

May the 4th be with you...

Okay, this cake was actually made for September 4th, but I couldn't resist the Star Wars Day reference :)  This Artoo cake (A resourceful, spunky and adventurous astromech droid according to StarWars.com) was made for two sweet brothers celebrating their birthday this past weekend.  They are Star Wars fans and so their Mom requested this cake to help make this celebration day a little more special!  The cake has a bottom layer of milk chocolate cake with chocolate ganache filling and a top layer of vanilla cake with white chocolate ganache filling.  The legs are made of Krispy Treats.  All fondant covering and accents.

Two things I have learned from this cake adventure is that 1) R2D2 is a really fun cake to make and 2) I know far too much about Star Wars, thanks to my own two boys who are Star Wars obsessed :)
