These cakes were made at work. They were a special order for the University of Wisconsin-Madison. They were to be used at a special party that was held at the UW's Athletic Director's house. It is so exciting to be chosen to be the baker's for this special event.
The cake flavors are carrot cake with fresh orange juice soaked in the layers and an orange juice cream cheese frosting. Chocolate cake with chocolate mousse filling and chocolate italian merigne buttercream. Lastly a coconut cake, made with yellow cake, a coconut bavarian filling, 7 minute frosting outside and garnished with toasted coconut.
We order the flowers at my favorite florist and they were able to get us something in the signature Badger red color.
We got to deliver them to the Kohl Center and met the Executive Chef and got a tour of his kitchen. It is the biggest kitchen I have ever seen in my life and they had equipment I had never heard of. We got to hear about how many people are working during a Badger game-it's over 200 employees, working as a team from the kitchen to the concession areas all at the same time! Amazing!!
