So my nephew Paul is absolutely head over heals for the Cars movie so this was my vision of a cars cake for him. It was the first time that I have carved an image out of cake and it was both easier and harder than I expected. Usually my figures are made out of fondant but this was so much fun! I made the car and base shiny but left the tire matte as tires just aren't shiny!! Hope you like it, He did!!

So we got together with David's lovely cousins yesterday and I thought that I would experiment and make Tiramisu cupcakes. And let me tell you...YUMMO! I used a vanilla bean cupcake with a Marsala Espresso simple syrup and filled it with Tiramisu cream (real authentic - meaning marscapone, double thick cream, egg yolks...etc etc...) and iced it with the Cream mixed with Whipped cream. Topped off with Bernard Callebaut cocoa powder and a lady finger. Yummm...

So this cake was for a 40th Birthday Party for a guy with a love of golf, beer and poker. I only paid small homage to the poker but hope that I caught the rest. His favorite beer is Budweiser so it was fun to try and replicate it.
Meet Mark's Beer...
"Forget The Hill...The 40's are the new 20's" Ya...right...(He's got a REALLY nice wife!!)
Wait a minute...that's the baker!!
