What's Cooking At Billa Cakes?
Billa Cakes is the brain child of one hot mama: Me! It's named for my daughter Sybilla, who is my inspiration and motivation. I love baking and as an artist, it gives me an outlet for my creativity as well as an opportunity to help create memories for a lifetime.
Currently this is a hobby to gain experience, but someday I plan on making it into a full time gig! My training includes some classes from my local baking supply shops, the Food Network and the internet. I am a full time student in the School of Hard Knocks.
My hope with this site is to showcase my work as I develop my business and to share my learning experiences with others so they can learn too. Thanks for following along!
I love cakes with 3D elements and this one was no exception. Ben is the older brother of Conner, who's first birthday cake I did back in October. Ben LOVES soccer and he's a really great player too. His mom and I agreed that a soccer cake would be perfect for him, especially since most of his team mates were attending the party. I don't have a Wilton Wonder Mold yet, so the ball itself is actually hand carved from two 6" round layers. The rest is sheet cake. Ben likes white cake like his little brother, and I iced this one also with American buttercream. The birthday boy was ecstatic and everyone loved it. Score one for Kelly!
You can't see it in the picture, but all around the sides are "Go Team!" and"Yay Bandits!" and other fun cheers.
