Congrats UF Grads December 2009

This was one of my favorite graduations cakes this week... for a few reasons..  I did Amelia & Douglas's wedding cake 2+ years ago, their baby shower cake and birthday cakes...  I feel like one of the family now.. It was Amelia's idea to add little UFs around the cake... love it going to be a hit for future cakes. Another interesting fact about this cake, they love my chocolate velvet cake with raspberry filling and the chocolate ganache icing, but for design reasons chocolate icing is not always the easiest to work with.  So several cakes ago we tried the chocolate ganache under the fondant rather than a butter cream icing.   And except for a little messier during application of the fondant it worked great...  so now it is their first choice for cake. Also the top tier was a coconut cake with pineapple filling... ooooh
