IC Birthday

8 Sep

I got this order from a parent of an Ithaca College freshman. Her birthday was on Monday and it was her first birthday away from home, so she wanted a cake delivered to her dorm. I was so excited to take this order because it was for a freshman theatre major. If you don’t know, I am an Ithaca College Theatre Arts Management (TAM) alumina. Additionally this cake gave me a chance to try a new technique that I’ve wanted to attempted for a while. The request was for chocolate cake with cream cheese buttercream frosting and a comedy and tragedy mask theme. For the masks, I carved them out of pound cake then covered them with cream cheese buttercream and fondant and placed them on top of the cake. I was really happy with how much life this technique brought to the cake and really gave it more dimension than just piping the design on.

The mother was happy to report that her daughter was thrilled with the cake and that it was delicious!
