Elegant Vintage Wedding Cake

This cake is for a 20 year renewal of vows of a couple.  Everything on this cake is edible except the pearl pieces attached to the center of each bow.  I loved making this cake so much.  It is so elegant and appropriate for the celebration or for a black, white and bling wedding! Thanks for looking!

Winter Wedding Cake and Dessert Table

I enjoyed making this simple, but beautiful cake for a very special couple that I have know for a while now.  I couldn't be happier with the marriage of Steph and Danny.  Steph knew exactly what she wanted and how she wanted it and I was happy to create what she had envisioned.  She, and artist, made a simple sketch on a piece of paper and said to me, "this is what I want".  The colors of her wedding were a light teal (not blue, not green) and soft grey, lovely! I made the cake using those two colors.  The grey I incorporated on the fantasy flower that I made out of gumpaste. The top tier was a moist yellow cake with my vanilla bean buttercream, 8x4, The middle tier was 10x6 (she wanted that tier taller than the other two) was my rum/vanilla cake, and the bottom tier was a double chocolate fudge cake with the vanilla bean buttercream, 12x4.

 I also made a very simple dessert table that had, chocolate chip merengues, marshmallows covered in white chocolate tinted in matching colors, sugar cookies in the shape of snowflakes, covered in MMF, Red Velvet cake pops.

Hawaiian Shirt Cake

I've been a little behind in posting my work on my blog.  I've been a bit busy, but here goes! This Hawaiian Shirt was Pina Colada flavor and covered in MMF.  I made it for a good friend's 50th birthday!  He loved it and wore a shirt to match his cake, lol!

Topsy Turvey Turquoise & Gold

I made this Topsy Turvey cake for a 15 year old young lady that knew exactly what she wanted.  We looked and three different cakes she had seen and loved and came out with this.  I love how it came out.  The flavor is coconut rum.  The numbers and all the elements are make out of MMF and/or gumpaste.  The color gold is edible painted in on.  Super fun!

Hugs and Stitches 3

This is a very popular theme for little girls first birthday parties.  This is not exactly how the person that ordered all these elements will be placing them, but I wanted to see how they would look arranged and to give people ideas on how to prepare a very simple dessert table.  Thanks for looking. The flavor of the cake is moist red velvet, the cookies were vanilla bean, the cupcakes and mini cakes were vanilla and chocolate.  The kind of flavors that children love!

I made this cake for a young lady that I love very much!  Flavor is rum with MMF icing and decorations.  The cakes are 4 inches high each.

Retro Cake

I made this cake for my sister's 50th birthday!  I took some of my pans and utensils to Rhode Island from Miami so that I could make it over there.  I had such a great time as I was creating this cake for my sister.  She was with me in the kitchen as I worked and we laughed and reminisced about so many wonderful things and giggled like crazy.  I believe it was another memory created for the two of us.  Anyway, back to the cake,  it was for 100 people.  All edible.  I used edible silver for the disco ball and gumpaste for the silhouettes and the 50.  My sister absolutely loved it! Thanks for looking!

Pots and Pans Cake

This cake was made for a lady that was turning 50.  This cake was so fun to make!  I followed the sketch and tried staying true to colors and everthing as the sketch.  Everything is edible.  The board was covered in white fondant marked like tiles.  The lady holding the the wooden spoon is a sugar cookie that I decorated with MMF and Royal icing.  The pots handle is made of RTK covered in white chocolate and fondant.

Mickey Mouse Playhouse

The client was torn between two cakes she saw, one that I had made, and the other one she had found online.  She didn't know what to do so I suggested that we took a little bit of both and come up with a design that had the two things she liked most of both cakes.  She told me she liked the idea and that she trusted that whatever I came up with would be great.  When she came to pick up the cake she absolutely loved it.  I wish I could have taken a picture of her face.  This is what I love about what I do.  Not only does it bring me joy by being able to create these art pieces, but the reaction of a satisfied customer is priceless to me!

Minnie Mouse Cupcake Tower

Ok, This month has been for this character, I have had several orders and it has been variations of this which I have done several times already, So I won't post all of them.  Only this on because it is smaller than what I had done before and it works for a tower.  I also made 80 cupcakes for this order, plus more cupcakes for other clients.  I still have two more orders like this before December is over.  I guess Minnie is really popular right now!  Thanks for looking!

Ni Hao Kai Lan Cake

This was such a fun cake to do!  I must say that the design is not original.  the client showed me a picture of a cake someone made and I replicated it with some modification.  Since I don't have small kids any more, I really didn't who the character Ni Hao Kai Lan was, but soon found out.  The cake is a marble loaf with cookies and cream buttercream.  Delicious!!!! Thank you for looking
