This Winter in Cake!

Chinese New Year Carrot Cake. 2011: Year of the Rabbit

In NYC, 2011, Year of the Rabbit, has been quite a year thus far in blizzards, snowstorms, and cake, and although I have made numerous cakes, this post includes a few cake highlights from the last two months:

A birthday cake for Cassandra, celebrating her amazing cat Isis.

Simple Lemon Cake

Birthday cake for Ashley, guardian of the infamous Mongo, a.k.a Lord Underbite.
See photo below for explanation of everything you need to know about Mongo, designed by Andy:

This was ordered for someone who reportedly caught their hair on fire from the previous year's birthday cake.
Hence, the flames! Marbleized orange, yellow, and red fondant for the fire effect.  Dusted with edible gold shimmer dust. 

This cake was for my father's birthday, and is the logo of his alma mater, Manhattan College, and their mascot.
