Coconut Pineapple filled Coconutty Cake!

Here's another take on my mom's favorite cake.  I talked about it so much my co-worker ordered one for her daughter's birthday!  This cake is a coconut flavored cake made with coconut milk, with a pineapple coconut butter filling and creamy coconut buttercream.  There is a slight variation on the mother's day cake.  Instead of adding extra decorations and roses, I garnished it with an extra helping pineapple coconut filling and toasted coconut.  Uh yum!!!  And Happy Birthday to the birthday girl!

Cake - US Tactical

Birthday cake for a guy...yes, I make those too!  Not every cake has to be frills and flowers...and here's proof!  My brother in law requested a cake for one his employees, with a few specific requests - company colors, gray top, black sides, the wording AND the company badge. Well I guess I succeeded - loved the reaction this cake got!  This is a vanilla cake with vanilla icing, and all lettering and decorations done in royal icing.

Here is a close up of the royal icing work for the company badge.

Cookies - Vintage Dude (50th Birthday)

Themed cookies for a 50th Birthday party. I thought it was quite clever, actually!  Sugar cookies bordered with royal icing and filled with my usual sugar cookie frosting.  The lettering is also made of royal icing.  I found a little cowboy hat in the mum section of the craft store, and thought it would be perfect for this photo.  :)

The second design of the 4 dozen batch.

Cake - Wildflower Birthday

It is always fun making cakes for this couple, they are so creative!  Seems like this year, the hubby has really gotten into gardening so yes, wife decided she would bring home a chocolate cake, with chocolate frosting (what else!!!) decorated in a variety of wildflowers, made from royal icing (hand piped by me, by the way).  Cute!
