Non-wedding cakes

Back in February it was my cousin in Indiana's birthday. I had been toying with the idea of making her a birthday cake and shipping it to her  for her birthday in the hope that it would get there in one piece. But I wanted it to be a surprise to her, so I didn't say anything. I packed in up snuggly and sent it to her via usps two days before her birthday. One her birthday I wrote on her FB page... " Hope you get some good cake.", to which she jokingly replied that she was waiting for the fedex man to show up with a cake from me. I remember thinking to myself that little does she know she will be getting a cake delivery from me, just not through fedex, and hoping it got there in one piece. By 1 pm it was there! And she was sooooo surprised.  And amazingly... it got there in one piece and looked almost as good as it did when I sent it!
This is her little birthday cake....

Last week was our last day of winter term. We have two classmates who are pregnant so we decided to make our end of term get together one dedicated to them. I made a special cake for the ceremony as the loved it. I'm so glad they did....

This cake is just a cake I made for the fun of it... no fancy decorations or anything like that! Just luscious, smooth, silky dulce de leche Italian Merengue Buttercream. It is so good! Just looking at it makes my moth water and my hips grow!!!
