Birthday cakes and a Father's Day Fruit Bouquet

In the past week we have had my husband's birthday, father's day, and Bowe's girlfriend's birthday! So here are my creations from those events! :)

First is Jason's Birthday! He did not want anything fancy, just a simple vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream frosting and a vanilla whipped mm filling. It was pretty yummy! I decorated it with candy instead of "fancy icing decorations"! Mmmm Hershey's kisses and Whoppers!

For Father's Day, the kids and I made Jason a fruit basket! It was yummy and I think it turned out looking really pretty! he loved it and ate most of it that day! ....with a little help from the kids and me of course!

The third item is a birthday cake for Bowe's girlfriend and her 2 brothers...triplets! They are all sports fanatics and love basketball so that is what I made for them! The boys like plain old vanilla cake - no fillings...so I made the vanilla cake in 2 colors, yellow and orange and stacked them every other color in 4 layers - with buttercream in between the layers and covered with buttercream. The basketball on top is chocolate cake, since Shay likes chocolate! And Shay also really wanted a raspberry filling, so I injected in a whipped raspberry filling before frosting the ball with buttercream. I finished with a dark chocolate net for the basketball hoop and dark chocolate for the finishes of the basketball...and their names in fondant with edible silver shimmer. Hope they liked it!!

My niece Alexis was blessed this past Sunday! She did so good and was such a doll! Here is the cake I made for the lunch afterwards. It was a yellow cake with a chocolate mousse filling and vanilla buttercream frosting! Yummy!
