We are moving this blog to a new address - it is now going to be called The Three Dough Boys.
Since each of our boys love to cook, we thought we would combine all of their tasty talents and spread the joy :)

Come check out what the boys are up to...

BARBIE ?!!??

The only way that Ray would ever make a Barbie cake would be if his Grandma asked him. Guess what - she did :) Its a Wilton Barbie pan and the Barbie face/hair is actually a plastic insert.

Daisy Shower Cake

This was for a wedding shower. Navy and daisies were the request. The cake is part homemade yellow and part homemade chocolate. Buttercream icing and the flowers are the tastiest fondant ever. (From cakecentral - rhondas ultimate MMF recipe) Cake size is a 10x10 and i guess its 4" tall.

Mr Smiths Birthday Cake - If you have seen Mrs Smiths cake, then you know how hard this one was to make. Mrs Smiths cakes ROCK!!!

Ray went simple - white cake with buttercream icing from an old Wilton Home Instruction Class Notebook. Kinda funny that you could take the class via mail order. Quite tasty but a little harder to work with.

'SMASH' Cake

This was a last minute cake we made for a 1st birthday 'SMASH' cake. Apparently the pros mean it when they say let your cake sit more a day or 2. Sitting for 1 hour doesnt firm it up much :) It was a scratch white cake with buttercream icing. We didnt notice the edge icing was falling until we delivered it - oppss. Hopefully the little girl wont mind a little bit of a ruffled edge.

Dads Birthday Cake

Due to time, Raymond wasnt able to make a 'fancy' cake for Dads bday. So he made a Stately Coconut Cake, orange/lemon filling with Boiled icing. It was quite tasty! He had bought a pack of 20 black candles for it - luckily it wasnt the 43 he needed - we probably would have had to call the fire department.
