Pop Art Inspired Cake and cupcakes

I have always loved art, and there is something about pop art that I just truly adore.  I was inspired by art that I love from a Brazilian artist, Romero Britto.   Although I didn't copy any of his designs, I did use some of his whimsical and bold color combos.  I love when clients listen to my ideas and tell me to go for it!  Flavors are Red velvet,  and cream cheese buttercream. Thanks for looking!

whimsey Flower Baby Shower Cake

I made this cake for a girl's baby shower.  The bottom tiers are 12, 10, 8, 6 and they are 3 inches high. The flavor is Leelee's specialty rum cake. The flowers and leaves on top are made our of Tylose and MMF and placed on lollipop sticks! Colors are pink, lt. pink, lavender, and lime green.  I also made vanilla sugar cookies for this order.  The client was extremely happy when she picked up her order.  She said it was prettier than what she expected it to be, -music to my ears, lol!

Modern Vintage Cake

OK, I totally enjoyed making this cake! Love the combination of colors and loved that I got to use my paint brushes too!  This was for a bridal shower, but if a bride is bold and daring enough, this would be a wonderful wedding cake by just adding a couple of more tiers and flowers.  The flavor is Leelee's specialty rum cake with coconut cream filling.  Yum!!!!! The roses are made of gumpaste and yes, they are black and look absolutely fabulous.  Sometimes we need to think out of the box!  Thanks for looking!

Seashells Wedding Cake

This cake was for a bride getting married at the beach. The simple design and the colors are a soft reminder of the beach without it being to filled with too many things.  The blue around the bottom of the tiers are a reminder of the nice warm beach water. The Calla Lily flowers are made of gumpaste.  I hadn't done flowers for cakes in a while, but I see they are making a big come back! The shells are also made out of gumpaste.  The flavor is Moist red velvet with cream cheese filling.  I brushed some metalic silver on the ropes bordering the cake. The tiers are four inches high.
