Ron Swanson Cake: Give me ALL the bacon and eggs you have.

Sunday, April 22, 2012

For anyone who watches the TV show Parks and Recreation, you might appreciate this cake.  Ron Swanson is a monotone, masculine, hunting, and breakfast loving character who is the parks director of Pawnee, Indiana.  Although there are SO many great characters on the show, my husband appreciates the humor of Ron the most.  So for his birthday I decided to make a face cake based off a Ron Swanson halloween mask I saw online, which was designed by Jon Defreest.

You must watch this hilarious clip with one of his most his memorable lines.  "Give me all the bacon and eggs you have."

 The April 2012 issue of Brides Magazine features our nautical banner cake as part of an inspiration page. The featured cake has a compass topper, but here's some photos with a sailboat silhouette topper.  Sailing ropes wrap the base of each tier for that added detail.

Surrealism Cake: New York Magazine Weddings 2012

Sunday, April 8, 2012

New York Magazine - Weddings, has an awesome museum worthy cake collection in their current issue!  Each cake is based off of an art movement in history such as Realism, Impressionism, Abstract, Pop art, Cubism, Modernism etc.  I chose Surrealism as my movement.  As you can see, under the fondant layer of this cake you would imagine fluffy layers of cake and buttercream, but instead there is a peek through a curtain that exposes a hard, cold brick wall with a window that opens up to goldfish swimming in the blue sky.  Haha, that is as surreal as my literal mind could come up with :)!
