Tooth Cake - Agrahadeeg

A friend of mine is Armenian and they have a celebration called Agrahadeeg to represent when a baby gets their first tooth. During the celebration they do a prayer and a ritual of setting out different items representing a variety of occupations, the child is then set forth and which ever item they choose represents what the child will grow up to be.....I believe a surgeon is the occupation of choice for this child.

This cake has a layer of vanilla bean cake and a layer of chocolate cake with a vanilla cream cheese butter cream.

Long Beach Retirement Cake

This was a Long Beach, CA themed retirement cake.  The bottom tier is a lemon cake with lemon filling and vanilla buttercream.  It is decorated with whales and dolphins.  The second tier is chococlate cake with fresh raspberries and chocolate buttercream. It is decaorated with Long Beach landmarks such as the City Hall, World Trade Center and Queen Mary along with a sign over the beach with the salutations.  The top has a hot dog stand because the retiree wants to start a hot dog vending company. 

It was a lot of work but worth it in the end.
