Did you know that Marie Antoinette didn't actually say "Let them eat cake?" she said, "Let them eat brioche." However, let's pretend (just for this post) that the word cake was used. Here are a handful of snap shots of my favorite cakes over the last several months:
Hello Kitty cake with a swiss meringue buttercream frosting
created by my dear room mate Lauren:
Red Velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, chopped
pecans, and topped with a chocolate covered strawberry .
Served at a ladies only xmas party last year:
Another red velvet confection made to
show my patriotism for the 4th of July:
Earl Grey mini cupcakes with apricot
frosting and garnished with pecans!
And a basil & mint cake I'm dying to try making myself:
