50th Birthday Cake

Sometimes I receive calls from people who have seen something I have done in the past and want something similar. Recently, a lovely couple called and said they were celebrating the husband’s 50th birthday and wanted a cake similar to one I had done previously. It happened to be one of the very first cakes I did for a friend and told them I have learned a lot since then and could do something much nicer now 🙂 Here is the result. It was so much fun to create.


The four tier cake was marble cake with chocolate buttercream filling and marble cake with chocolate hazelnut buttercream filling.

Large purple sugar peonies added a nice touch. Special thanks to Ron Ben Israel for teaching me how to create them.

 Here’s the inspiration…I couldn’t find a bigger version.

This was such a fun cake to create and I have certainly come a long way in 2 years!
