My First Wedding Cake - Vintage Style

By tmalvey
I created this cake for my lovely sister Roxanna and her husband Roy. Her wedding theme was vintage, and her colors were ivory and wine. She really loved the hand-painted roses that I did on another cake, so I incorporated that into this one, but made them quite a bit larger this time. The bottom two tiers are covered in buttercream ruffles. I made the tea cup from gumpaste and then hand painted roses on it as well. I also made the other roses from gumpaste. The pearl border is fondant. The cake flavors were cookies and cream filled with cookies and cream buttercream, and then chocolate cake filled with chocolate buttercream and ganache. This is the largest cake I’ve made to date, and I traveled with the entire cake stacked – so thank you to my husband for carrying and transporting the cake – he always makes me feel like we can do anything – such a strong, soothing and supporting person! Don’t know what I’d do without him!Thank you for looking!

A spring holiday, Mother’s Day always brings to mind bright blooms and cheerful birds in the garden. Use some of Cake Central’s most popular garden cakes for Mother’s Day inspiration, and delight the mothers in your life with stunning sugar flowers, whimsical watering cans, festive flower pot cakes and gumpaste garden scenes.

Garden Birthday Cake

Garden Birthday Cake By yummy_in_my_tummy
Made this one for my MIL’s birthday. I saw a similar cake here on CC and thought it would be perfect for her since she loves gardening (sorry! I can’t remember who’s picture it was!). Everything is made from fondant or gumpaste and the dirt is crushed oreos. As for the flower, this was my first REAL sugar flower where I had to make each petal on a separate wire and then put it together. I didn’t have the cutters that I needed to be a peony or a magnolia, which is what I wanted to make, so I just cut them by hand and although it’s not a specific flower, I think it’s pretty :)

Flower Pot Cake

Flower Pot Cake By mrsmudrash
This cake was inspired by the amazing Cupcake Envy cake designers. I LOVE their mini cakes and especially their flower pots. This was my first flower pot and first time ever making flowers! I did the ribbon roses because it was quicker! :) I used brownies and choco ganache for the cake, then domed the top with cream cheese buttercream in order to have a base for the flowers to stick. The outside is modeling chocolate. I was happy with my first attempt! And so was my sweet friend who enjoyed it on her birthday!
