The end of May means the beginning of summer, warmer days, relaxing, and the birthdays of two of my fave ladies. . . My sister, Linda, and my mom! I love making their cakes. It's the gratification I get when they first see their cakes, the praise when they taste them, and the free creative control I have with them.
This year, I was inspired to try out two very different petal cake techniques. A fondant rose petal version for my sister, and a whipped icing version for my mother. I've always wanted to try out an ombre color scheme on a cake, so why not with these too? My sister's was of course a gradation of purple tones, and a softer blue for my mom.
Happy Birthday ladies!
