Thankfully, the first wedding cake order I had was quite simple...meringue icing with beaded borders and fresh orchids!  It was a heavy bad boy, but it made it in one piece!

This is the same practice cake as Pink Blossom before adding all else.  Not too happy with how the fondant covering came out...

This was a small wedding of 30 guests, so I just did an 8" and 11". We priced the fresh orchids...oh my $$$ we just went with these artificial flowers. I was really happy with how real they looked and the bride was relieved at the price!

I couldn't wait to do this cake! The colours were so vivid. I used Americolor Burgundy and Wilton Chocolate Brown to get the perfect Merlot colour to match the couple's wedding invites. Their mongram is handwiting in royal icing on a curved gumpaste tier. The most complicated monogram I've EVER seen..hahaha!

I designed it from 3 other cake photos the bride brought in to the consultation. We took the top tier from one cake, the bottom from another and the middle from a third cake.

FINALLY got the pics!!!  Here is my orchid wedding cake.  Light green fondant w/dark green ribbon and Fresh Cymbidum Orchids.  The small yellow flowers are also fresh orchids but not sure what kind.  This was as close as I could get to an Orchid cascade like the bride requested.  I think cut too much of the stem off the cymbidum orchids b/c I had trouble getting the wire around them.   So I used the yellow orchids to create the cascade effect.  Bride was VERY happy w/it!!  And I love how it turned out!!

I took this Orchid class with Scott Wooley in NYC last weekend, amidst the blizzard! It was a very nice class...met women from as far as Turkey, Canada and some locals who were doing it as a hobby. He's a very good instructor; these were made in class!

Basketweave is not on the top of my list, but I did enjoy decorating this cake.  The daisies are royal icing, the roses and bachelor buttons are buttercream.  The bachelor buttons were the closest match to the orchids I could get.  'Tho not perfect, I think the color ties the top tier to the other two.  The bottom cake was chocolate almond with raspberry and cream cheese fillings.  The top two tiers were white orange cake with raspberry and cream cheese filling

First attempt at this gumpaste orchid and filler flower.  I had difficulty wiring the sepals and petals to the throat.  I would appreciate tips and constructive criticism from the CC community, especially regarding its realism, wiring ,and staging for the photo. Hoping the photo uploads clearly. Thanks for looking!

These seem to be pretty popular! 1/2 choc, 1/2 yellow cake w/BC.  Little rocks are choc candies I found and flowers are silk.  The couples e-vite had orchids and I had some left from the last beach cake I did.

I made this cake yesterday for my friend's wedding. Everything was prepared ahead of time and was flown with me to CA where I assembled the cake. The flowers were from the bride's beautiful garden. She is Chinese hence the red border.

This was made with the last confirmation cake.
The mother wanted a pretty shoe and a horse with. But it was to big to set on the cake, so I made a plate to keep on the side.
All is made by gumpaste.

Simple 2 tier cake (9" and 12", 6" tall tiers) with cascade of artificial orchids. The groom chose this cake design. I was happy to do it, but suggested fake flowers to save them a ton of $$$!

Mother of bride thought you could buy GP in any store.  Cake person can't make GP flowers.  Luckily, it was something I could make.

This is a cake dummy decorated for a Bridal Expo that i attended today with franjmc and koko4min. 
Covered in fondant with satin ribbons and hand made orchids. This was my first time making orchids, i actually made these for a wedding cake where the bride changed her mind and then had cherry blossoms so I had these in a box and decided to use them for the expo.

Fondant, fresh orchids.  Lace form used to create lace to match the lace around the bride's gown.  She had a single band of lace and ribbon around her waist like on the cake.

This cake was made with buttercream icing, smoothed to look like fondant.  I used viva paper towels to do the smoothing.  The bride requested off white frosting and real orchids.

This is a wedding cake I made for my brothers wedding in late July.  All of the orchids and ivy are hand painted to match the bridesmaids dresses. The cake was susposed to be a completely stacked 5 layer cake but when I found the round pillars I decided to make a small change.  I hope you all like this; it is only my third wedding cake to ever make!
