The Tennessee Trio won a bronze medal in the 2013 ICES (International Cake Exploration Societe´) Live Cake Challenge held in Lexington, KY on August 10th. The Trio consisted of Heather Longpre´, Debra Bittle and Cindy Zoesch.
The theme of the cake was All Around Kentucky and featured a Kentucky Derby race track, complete with horse and jockey. The infield sported a Corvette with the iconic rose blanket draped over the back of the car. The base of the stacked art featured Abe Lincoln’s hat on top of which was placed a basketball and basketball player, topped with a KFC bucket, roses and crowned with a Kentucky Bourbon sugar bottle.
The teams thanks its many sponsors, including: Make Your Own Molds; Guildcraft, Simi Cakes and PhotoFrost. A special thank you to KFC for giving the team permission to use their logo and name.
Every now and again we will have a groom approach us and order his own groom’s cake and sugar art for the wedding. In this particular instance we decided to ask the bride for her permission before we proceeded …. I think you can see why!
This groom wanted Roadkill Possum for his groom’s cake. We’re not kidding !!!! With the bride on-side we made the cake out of bright red colored raspberry red velvet cake and layered it with raspberry truffle filling, chocolate creamcheese and chocolate buttercream layers. Yes, we even put veins inside ….. again … the bride said we could ;-) So that it was evident the possum was roadkill we placed tire tracks, made out of fondant, on either side of the possum cake.
Only in Tennessee.

This is a popular technique known as ombre´. Your start with a light shade and get progressively darker. This is a raspberry chocolate truffle cake. Everything on the outside of the cake was made with modeling chocolate, instead of fondant. Great for chocolate lovers!

Rich Belgian chocolate cake layered with *Kenny’s marshmallow fluff, smooth caramel, roasted peanuts and dark chocolate buttercream … what can we say? … some like it sweet!
*As a small child, my brother Ken saw an add for marshmallow fluff and wanted to make a “Fluffer Nutter TM”. We didn’t have any marshmallow fluff in the house, so he made his peanut butter Fluffer Nutter sandwich with mayonnaise! This cake is a tribute to little Kenny and all the other aspiring gourmets out there.
