Check out this blogger!!!! Love this post.
CRAZY, FUN, WHIMSICAL, BEAUTIFUL! I recently had my cakes photographed by a professional photographer. I have never had my cakes intentionally shot before…. it was so fun!
I am glad they modeled and not me! (not photogenic).
Anyway, THIS cake was so fun and challenging for me to make, but as we went through the process, I feel it didn’t get the attention it deserved.
The photo needs to be large in order to appreciate it.
Here it is!

Fall is here so I am inspired to bake all things spicy and fragrant. Especially apples, pumpkin, and cinnamon. So just for the season, Roseland Bakery will be offering Apple Cinnamon Cake and Pumpkin Cupcakes, both paired with yummy cream cheese frosting! Check out the menu for details on pricing.
New to Roseland Bakery’s menu…Tuxedo Cake! Alternating layers of double chocolate cake and classic vanilla bean filled with chocolate mousse, raspberry cream, strawberry cream, whipped vanilla or anything you can imagine or desire. Black and white just like the classic tuxedo!
Still in my house, just kicking my sweet husband out of his workshop.
Actually it was “his” idea!
When I can figure out how to to a slide show on here,
I might post all my cake photos until my website is up again……
Not many people can say they have been married to the same person for 50 years. But if they have, congratulations! I know my parents would have been married that long, but my mom passed shortly after their 25 wedding anniversary. My dad is married again to a wonderful lady and says he’s going for the next 25 years. I hope so! What a great life and a blessed man to “marry up” twice in a lifetime. Not that my dad isn’t a great catch…… but those of you who know him, know he’s gotten very lucky in the woman department!
Anyway, I was hired to “gift” a cake to a family in town that has been married for 50 years. The cake turned out great and is very pretty, but was a bit much for the recipient and his wife. I am not sure if most of it ended up in a dumpster on Walnut Street somewhere, but I hope they were able to share some of it with someone.
I did learn a very important lesson while making this cake. No matter how much time you put into the cake, or how important, rich or well-known that person is…..it’s just a cake, right? One cake isn’t any more important than another. The words to teach me this lesson came out of the mouth of babes.
After a stressful day and a confusing delivery of the big, fat, Greek cake, I was questioning my desire to be a cake designer. I love to bake. I love testing new recipes. I enjoy knowing some people hold the opinion, if Tammy made it, it’s probably pretty good. I like bringing joy and “special-ness” to the occasion even if I am not always there to see it. But with the joy comes alot of work, fear, calories, and some sleepless nights……maybe I should just go back to teaching? The career I have always wanted to do the most the least. (My own saying from college after choosing teaching as a major.)
My son Jacob’s birthday party was the same weekend of the Greek cake. He kept asking me if I was going to work on the Captain Rex cake. When are you getting to Captain Rex? I assured him I would, but told him I was nervous if I’d be able to carve it correctly and make it look right. Well, late Friday afternoon, Captain Rex was finished. I completed him minutes before Jacob walked in the door from school.
He walked in and saw the cake. With a wide-eyed expression and a completely sincere heart, he said, “Ahhh, I knew you could do it!” From his heart to my heart, it was confirmed…. I was doing the right thing!
The Captain Rex birthday cake wasn’t just a cake to him.
The most important cakes are for my very own family!
Soon to post how to on Mississippi Mud Pie that SDS ate like a champ!
