A couple months back Toni and I did a cake for the holmby westwood homeowners association for Westwood Cleans Up- which was a fun nonprofit event where kids in the neighborhood 'cleaned up' Westwood. We donated this adorable cake, some jalapeno cheddar biscuits, butter biscuits, blueberry muffins, and banana nut muffins. They were cute and the kids were so excited!
We made the cake and delivered it to the playboy mansion intact. It was really cool being there knowing the history of the mansion. There were tents set up with local buisnesses and restaurants displaying there finest. I got to meet so many amazing chefs and people that day- I was thrilled and inspired. Walking around the grounds of the mansion was amazing enough! I met a lot of the people that work at the mansion- that have been there for years. I learned so much about it in general that I felt honored to even be there. Hugh Hefner did make an appearance but I didn't have my camera when he showed face but its ok, I think everyone knows what he looks like so it doesn't matter anyway. anyways,
at the end of that day everything was worth it.
I have my flicker account with all the pictures but I still want the process photos on here. The link for my flickr is posted on the bottom so make sure you check out my pictures!!!
The cake that was actually served was a lemon scented pound cake with a lemon curd buttercream, with little bits of fresh strawberries in the layers. I made 5 full sheet cakes to serve.
