Cake Flavor Testing!!!

While working on some cake decorations today, the conversation in the kitchen turned to interesting cake flavors and combinations. The result, we whipped up a few new combos and are eagerly awaiting the results. We tried the following cake flavors:
Raspberry Cake
White chocolate and Raspberry Swirl cake
Strawberry Cake marbled with Chocolate Cake
Chocolate Cake marbled with Raspberry Cake
Raspberry Cake marbled with Chocolate Cake
The cakes are cooling and will be sampled tomorrow with lunch (where else is cake for lunch a job requirement!!! ) We'll keep you posted on the results, however if you are in the area and would like to stop by for a sample, and to provide feedback, feel free to drop in.
Also, if you happen to have any good name ideas for any of the above flavor combos, please let us know.

Did you miss me?

I knew you did :)
Wow, it feels like its been forever since I last posted. We've definitely been keeping busy. While we did not win the cover contest, we definitely appreciate all of the votes and well wishes received.
We've been spending the majority of the past few weeks getting ready for the tax deadline tomorrow. But that's the boring part of owning your own business, now onto the fun part, CAKES!!
There have been a few really cool cakes being ordered lately, and here is just a few examples:
This cake was very simple, yet elegant wedding cake. The bride decided to surprise the groom with the extra tier!
This birthday girl's daughter wanted her to turn 50 with style, so we used the invitation as inspiration. The butterflies are black with teal sparkles on their wings.
This was for a couple enjoying a small, intimate wedding. The monogram and flowers are a deep purple. The cake was topped with a pair of chocolate covered strawberries upon arrival at its destination.
While this cake just looks fun, the best part was that the birthday girl's BFF designed it! The bottom tier matched the invitations, while the birthday girl's name sparkled in front of the zebra print. How can you not love this cake?!
Our final cake of the post is a more traditional cake for a milestone birthday. To celebrate her 80th year, we made a cake with basketweave sides and a cluster of spring flowers adorning the top of the cake. All of the flowers are made of sugar, so they are completely edible.
