Wonderfully Simplistic

Sometimes people just want cake.  No frills, no fuss, just cake.  This was the week of simple cakes.  Simple outside - yes - but delectable goodness hiding inside.  

This first cake was made for my Grandmom's birthday dinner.  A 6in cake was enough for a group of people who I knew would opt for smaller pieces.  This was a yellow cake with cream cheese icing with - the kicker - strawberry filling.  The tart filling perfectly balances the sweet cake and icing.

Most cake requests I receive have a theme. The person wants something created that they can't otherwise buy at the store. So I was a little surprised when I was asked to make a single cake for a small family party. Then I found out what kind of cake was wanted. This is a chocolate cake, with chocolate buttercream icing, with crushed Girl Scout Thin Mints throughout. 3 layers of cake, 2 layers of icing, 2 layers of crushed cookie, and additional cookie crunch on top. Definitely NOT something you can buy at the store!
