You may ask, "How are your wonderful cakes actually created?" Well, I'll tell you. A secret Hansen family formulation of ingredients has been passed down through the generations, and is kept locked up tight in a safe. Once baked, the cakes are carefully cooled, de-panned and chilled. After they are assembled with the appropriate filling, they are given a "scratch coat,' to stabilize them and provide an even surface to ice after they are again chilled.
Here, you see the cakes with this "scratch coating." Pretty cool stuff, heh?
Then, tada, iced and decorated! This particular cake is going to be finished with a Little Mermaid theme...
...and this one is just plain lovely!

Another 70th birthday this week...this version has one of our popular splattered designs. Just wait until it is embellished later this evening!
