Captiva Cake Pink And Brown

This is my own signature design -- fustrated with disaster whimsy cakes, but wanting a differnt look -- developed the Captiva line == Captiva, French for "cage" -- these cakes are encased in a cage of fondant -- made basically by putting covered boards that are at least 2 inches larger than the cake -- and then applying fondant strips --

This is one of my favoirtes...

the create a great illusion --

I do quite a few for family and friends -- the original one was a 3 piece wedding cake -- they are fun to do -- I like them because they are unusual -

wuaw i like that idea of the cakeboard covered on top..hmmm thanks for sharing! looks great !

This is simply stunning!!! don't be surprised if many of us "copy" your captiva line. It's very inspirational. One question, since you used cakeboards, how do you cut it, disassemble it first????

Absolutely gorgeous - I especially like the bow with its differing widths. Super-cool!
