Charisma's Nyan Cat Vanilla Strawberry Chiffon Cake

My daughter Charisma has an affinity with cats and youtube.  If I can describe Nyan cat it would be like this.  Nyan cat is flying, poptart, space cat who leaves a trail of rainbow as she flies into space.  She even has a theme song as she flies.   Nyan cat is shown on the computer screen. nyan cat decor on our pendant lighting lovingly made by charisma. it was also my brother Patrick's 34th birthday. Hello Kitty Balloons from Grandma Agnes October is a busy month for us.  Not only its Charisma's birthday it is also Halloween a couple of days later. Charisma the "White Rabbit".

Gin's Vintage Dude cake

This chocolate chiffon cake's inspiration is from "vintage dude" party ware.  I want to evoke the feel of a gentleman celebrating his 30th birthday, sipping martini in his fine leather couch.  (LOL) I achieve the fine leather look by icing the cake with chocolate ganache.  The letterings are coffee buttercream and the cake graphics are also coffee buttercream that I dyed grey. This chiffon chocolate cake is similar to red velvet cake but minus the red food colouring.  It is filled with cream cheese icing and covered with chocolate ganache.  I posted a shortcut version of this cake recipe at the bottom of this page.  Enjoy!
