Milwaukee Fire Department

My friend Jessica requested a Cake Mama cake for her husband's 20th anniversary party with his colleagues at the Milwaukee Fire Department. What an honor! She sent over some inspirational ideas and one picture had the Maltese Cross and the other was a cake filled with flames. I thought it fun to incorporate both for this cake. It needed to feed 60 people, so a sheet cake seemed the best solution.

The Maltese Cross and flames are made out of a gum paste/fondant mix and the rest of the cake is covered in buttercream. The left side of the cake is chocolate with chocolate ganache and caramel filling and the right side of the cake is a yellow cake with raspberry buttercream filling. I honestly don't know which side I would go for first!!

This cake was a huge honor for me to make and I appreciate ALL of the work the firefighters do for our community.

  1. The cake was delicious! Got a lot of compliments on it. At first I thought that because it was A LOT of cake that we would have tons left over. But once people started eating it, it disappeared. The chocolate, caramel and ganache was my fave, but you make a fantastic raspberry buttercream too! No cards left at the end of the night.

    Thanks again for all your work, the maltese cross turned out awesome too...couldn't have been easy to make. I also appreciate you meeting me too. Hope you guys had a productive day!
