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!
