Ft. Ed Hurley’s Celebration

Posted on June 29th, 2010 in Cakes

This is a very special post for me. I had the honor of creating a few cakes for Father Ed Hurley’s 40th anniversary as a priest as well as a farewell because he is leaving St. Francis Church. All the cakes were designed with Fr. Hurley’s special interests and hobbies in mind. Here’s a picture of our dear Ft. Hurley.

Here we have a cake that features The Maxwell Car or The Dream Car. Inside the cake we have a delicious Almond cake with Raspberry  and buttercream filling. We displayed two different view of the car (in chocolate), one had the top up while the other one is down. There are a couple of chocolate trees and a sweet banner that says “Go East Young Man”, since he is heading to St. Josephs Church on the East side.

The following cake was designed with his 40 years of service in mind. A chalice (chocolate), a bible (rice cereal), and a beautiful rosary (fondant – made by my mom) are the main decorations on this cake. This is a Red Velvet with Cream Cheese filling and covered in fondant.

The following cake’s design is a golf course as Ft. Hurley enjoys playing the sport. The Lemon Cake with buttercream and raspberry filling is covered in fondant. There is a sand area made with brown sugar, a fondant lake and colorful flowers around the cake. 

Last but not least, we have a cake designed for Father Ken who was celebrating his 40th birthday. This is a white cake that has buttercream filling and we covered in fondant.

His is fond of baking so I thought that a slice of cake was appropriate. We have cookies decorated as presents and some displaying a “Happy Birthday” message.

Thank you for everything you did for all of us and for St. Francis of Assisi’s Church. We love you and wish you all the best.
