Christmas Desserts: Cable-Knit Sweater Cake and Cranberry Cheesecake

One of my favourite bloggers is I AM BAKER and when I saw her video tutorial for her Cable-Knit Sweater Cake I knew I had to do my own version. This was a 3 layer 8" gingerbread cake with cream cheese icing.  I followed her instructions in the video for the decorating that was very easy to follow.  

In addition to the sweater cake I made a 6' vanilla cheesecake in the Instant Pot then covered with homemade cranberry sauce.


I love my mom's vintage Christmas table cloth!  Her Christmas baking in the background is always a big hit. We did not go hungry.

Ty's Milwaukee Tool Box Cake

Clover never ceases to amaze me in what challenge she dreams up for me to do for her son's birthday cake.  This year was no disappointment! 


The baking was the easy part for this cake!  The cake was technically a 3 tiered cake that was about 9" x 10".  The tiers were separated with a half inch black cake board cut down to size.  The bottom was chocolate, then vanilla and then cookies and cream.  All were covered in vanilla butter cream before being covered in red fondant.


Thankfully Mr T's cousin Amanda was over visiting for the weekend and ended up helping me a lot with the cake.  She built the handle for me using cardboard and electrical tape.  She also told me that it was customary to have stickers on your toolbox so I printed off some plumber related ones and laminated them.  We even got the cake done early and delivered.  Woohoo!

Can't wait for next year's challenge!  That's a joke.

P.S. Now in my Instagram and Facebook feed I get suggestions for Mi…

Unicorn Cake and Unicorn Cupcake Cake for Rea

This has definitely been the year of the unicorn for cakes.  8" 3 layer vanilla cake with sprinkles and filled with butter cream. 



I love these eyelash cutters I purchase from Etsy.  They work perfectly for decoratin.

Rea's favourite colours are pink and purple; so I added as much as possible.
