Mini Cakes!

I am ALL about pumpkin right now... I just can't get enough. 
I also love things in a mini version... I guess I don't feel as guilty eating it.

Mini chocolate cakes (2 tier) with pumbkin buttercream in the middle, drizzled with brown butter sugar, topped with pumpkin buttercream and sprinkled with roasted walnut crunch!  YIKES, I need to hit the gym!

Happy Birthday, Franca!

This cake was so yummy!  My very good friend Franca was turning... oh let's just say 30 ish...SHE discreetly told me exactly what she wanted for a birthday cake (AND not last minute!)... She saw this post.... and said "That's what I want."  SO.... delicious chocolate fudge-like cake with peanut butter buttercream between each layer, chocolate ganache-like buttercream to frost the cake then I topped it with peanut butter cups and peanut butter cookies.... CAN you stand it!  I still wanted to make it girly and personalize it a little bit... I did the ruffle technique (which IS my fave) and then topped it with a fondant topper with the letter "F."  As usual, my pictures are not the best, but the fondant topper was three shades of orange/coral dusted with gold.  So pretty!  We had a great night... I think it was 70 degrees out, not bad for October in Boston.  Happy Birthday, Franca! 

The cake before and after the demolishers got hold of it!
