I baked this while I was away for the weekend at Lake Tahoe (altitude 6500 feet).  I'm not used to the high altitude cooking corrections.  This was a disastrous crumbling mess, but my husband encouraged me to try to put it together with frosting.  I had no idea it would work so well!  Frosting really does cover a multitude of sins...

Thanks to "ngerland" and to Martha Stewart for inspiration.

More playing!  Tried to copy the dogwood blossoms in the vase and got pretty close.  Now if I just had a cake to put them on. Made of fondant...

After a drive through downtown yesterday, and seeing all the beautiful flowering trees, I couldn't resist doing a dogwood cake.  Plus...I'd never used any of my oval pans, so it was just a fun thing to do.  Crusting buttercream icing...gumpaste blossoms...fondant branch...edible ink leaves on wafer paper.

I can't remember who it was but someone on CC inspired me to do this dogwood flower.  Their cake was lovely, btw!  This is a chocolate cake with chocolate ganache filling and covered in chocolate buttercream and mmf.  All decorations are out of mmf.

This was my first time modeling flowers out of fondant. The cake was my own take on a peppermint patty, Chocolate cake, peppermint buttercream and I flavored the mmf with peppermint as well.

I did this cake for free for a charity auction.  It is all buttercream except for the gumpaste dogwood flowers, which are brushed with both white and gold luster dust.  The buttercream isn't perfectly smooth, but I gave up - I'm pregnant and just can't do this much anymore!

Thanks for looking!

Just a practice cake, not the best by far, in fact I would say this was my worst! white cake, BC frosting, RI dots, and pink flowers, and fondant flower.

These were so much fun to do! Sugar cookies with Toba Glace and Alice's icing for outlining.  I melted some candy melts for the center and piped on some icing.  Luster dust and cocoa on the edge for the color.

I finally had an opportunity to try the present cake tutorial.  i really liked making this cake, but I had a hard time covering the choclate side on the top without getting crumbs everywhere.  i think nect tiem I will reccoment fondant for the top at least...  The cake is 1/2 choc 1/2 butter, buttercream with fondant accents.  the bow and dogwoods are gumpaste.  And the dots are hand rolled fondant coated in super pearl...what a PAIN!

These are the flowers I learned to make at Nicholas Lodge's 2 day class on Spring Flowers.  Peony, dogwood, cherry blossom, hydrangea, tulip.  These are my first complete gumpaste flowers.  They were a lot of fun to make.

Tried to make dogwoods, but not really sure what these turned out like!  Fondant covered dummies.   Fondant/gumpaste flowers and leaves.

This cake is cookies-n-cream filling covered in fondx (sooo good). The dogwood is gumpaste with royal icing centers. I tried brushed embroidery for the flowers on the side and the sparrows. I used a little teal luster dust over the sparrows for added sparkle. The pattern on the sides of the cake were inspired by a shabby chic pillow I saw in a magazine.

I did this in a class with Geraldine Randlesome at the OH ICES DOS in April.  The dogwoods are made with cold porcelain paste, so they're not edible.  The champagne glasses are gumpaste with disco dust.

The cake lady didn't want to make the dogwood flowers so I was asked to do it.  I am pretty happy especially since this is my first attempt at gumpaste!  Maybe next time she'll let me make the cake too!

I made this cake for my college's social work honors banquet.  I didn't really want to write anything on it...I thought it took away from the look, but it's what they asked for. ;)  I made the dogwoods out of gumpaste and silicon molds from
