Open, Sesame!

About a year ago, I tried Black Sesame ice cream and loved it. I can't really eat ice cream, so I wanted to create that same flavor in a cupcake. This is Vanilla Cake with Black Sesame Buttercream. I love the nuttiness of the frosting and can't wait to try it out with other flavor combinations.

Courtney And Sereh.

Red Velvet Sheet Cake for Courtney and Sereh. They share the same birthday. This triple-layer cake is filled with Cream Cheese Frosting and covered in Vanilla Buttercream with Fondant accents.

Bacon Cake.

Bacon Cake for Ari Stern's Birthday. Ari owns CULTUREfix, a very popular bar/gallery on the Lower East Side that also serves food. He loves bacon, so I made this cake which is Dark Chocolate Fudge Cake studded with Bacon, filled with Sweet Caramel Buttercream that was sprinkled with J&D Bacon Salt, Raw Brown Sugar and Bacon. I covered the cake with Chocolate Buttercream and Caramel. The entire cake is flanked with Thick-Cut Chocolate-Covered Bacon and finished with a Fondant piggy and Gold Disco Dust.
