We were asked to create a birthday cake that celebrated our nations capital, Washington DC.  Reggie, the birthday boy, was born and raised in the District.  He loves sports so we began our design with recreating the sports jerseys from all of the Washington Pro Sports teams.  We included the Nationals, Wizards, DC United, the Capitals, and of course the Washington Redskins, Reggie’s favorite team!  Each jersey featured Reggie’s name and age for a special touch.  Next we added a local map of DC with quadrants and an I Heart DC banner.  No Washington inspired cake would be complete without a salute to the White House.  Here we molded the famous landmark in premium Ghiradelli white chocolate.  So it’s beautiful and completely edible!  Finally,  we recreated the red stars and stripes of the DC flag.  This cake is so DC!

Inside the cake we have flavorful layers of our premium carrot cake with 2 pounds of freshly grated carrots, jumbo raisins, and toasted walnuts.  The cake is  paired with tangy orange scented cream cheese frosting.

Reggie’s fiancée Zalika contacted us to let us know that the cake was a hit.
