A cake for a Communication Scholar

Posted by Jennifer at 7:21 PM

This is the largest cake I've made to date. Phew! It's finals week and also the last week that one of my favorite professors will be teaching. She's an AMAZING communication scholar and wonderful teacher so I wanted to make this cake in honor of her life. We had a surprise party for her and she was just shocked. It was pretty awesome! The top tier is chocolate cake with coffee buttercream filling (because of her love of chocolate and coffee). The second tier is apple pie cake with cheesecake cream filling, and the third tier is orange creamsicle cake with orange buttercream. The bottom tier was a fake cake and we had just enough cake to feed her students in the class and the extra older students who came to surprise her.

Here are some closer photos of the images I created for the cake. Everything is handmade with homemade marshmallow fondant. It was so much fun to "research" her life and to see some memories recreated in cake. (Yes, those are a pair of panties falling out of a purse. :) haha. I love this woman!)

Bud, i'm going to be serious in this post. This cake is SO incredible. SO SO SO incredible. I wish I'd gotten to see it in person, because i'm sure the sheer magnitude of it was breathtaking!Glad I got to taste it--it was delish--especially the apple part! Seriously, awesome, awesome job!!! You're incredibly talented.
