For a Chocolate/Ivory themed wedding tonight at a very Art Deco venue. Worked perfectly!

I did the scrollwork in dark brown royal icing instead of chocolate, as it is an easier medium for me to work in. Fondant was Ivory White Chocolate.

Sizes are 6", 9", 12" and 15". Spiced Carrot Cake filled with Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting.

This is my first go at scroll work, using ribbon, and the gumpaste plaque. I guess I'm ok with how things turned out.

This was a cake I did for a 40th Anniversary.  The cake was butter with raspberry filling and whipped cream bc for icing and decoration.  The roses are fresh and I arranged them on site.  I saw this scrollwork in the Wilton Yearbook and hand-drew it onto the cake as I did not have the press set that was required.  It is piped with #18 and then overpiped with #14.  The next time I do it I will use smaller diameter tips.

This was my 1st wedding cake.  The bride and groom married in Hawaii and came home to have their reception.  No real rules with this one so everybody was pleased!  Thanks for looking!  I'd love some input on this one.

I think this cake could be used for many occasions!  The customer wanted a mint green cake with ivory scrollwork for a friend's birthday.  It was lemon cake with lemon curd filling and swiss meringue buttercream.  Fondant bands and bow.

The cake was all buttercream with scrollwork.  As you can tell by my middle tier, I had a little problem with bulging.  I normally do fondant cakes, so I never had this problem before.  I now know not to put my filling too close to the edge.  Practice makes perfect right?!

Not sure if it is actual scrollwork or an impression mat because it so perfect!

This is a larger (hopefully) pic of a cake I uploaded earlier this month.  It was my 1st attempt at scrollwork-I guess it came out ok.

This was leftover lemon pound cake batter and leftover white chocolate IMBC.  Wanted to try my hand at scrollwork.  Came out okay even though you can't see it very well.  I resized the picture too small.

This is the bottom layer of my first wedding cake.  There are three layers, and I will have a picture of them all together very soon.  The bride wanted the words "and they lived happily ever after" around the bottom layer, with scrollwork on all layers.  Whew, I'm glad this one is over!

This is the top layer of the wedding cake I posted before.  I'm waiting for copies of the pics with all the layers together.  This is white cake with buttercream and raspberry filling.  Scroll work is royal.  My first cake!

This cake was frosted with buttercream. The black frosting is stiffened buttercream. I stiffened it to prevent it from "bleeding" into the white.

Three tier wedding cake (14",10", and 6").  All buttercream with scrollwork on the sides.  I did NOT do the scrollwork freehand.  I make a pattern on parchment paper and transferred it to the cake using piping gel.  Easy, but time consuming.  Everything went suprisingly smooth for this 1st wedding cake.  I can't help but be proud!  Thanks to my DH who took charge of stacking the cake and using dowel rods.  I think he did a great job.

4 Tiered Wedding Cake.  Stacked Construction.  Buttercream covered in fondant with black scrollwork.  I was petrified to decorate this cake with black icing (it is so unforgiving).  Turned out much better than I expected.  This was the first time I had ever covered a cake in fondant

This is the first cake that I have done that had fresh flowers on it. I LOVE THE LOOK! This cake was a vanilla cake with regular buttercream icing. The cake was 12",10" and a 8" round. Simple free-handed scroll work on the sides

I am SOOOOO glad this wedding is over! (Seriously, I have 72 pages of  emails in 6 months from this couple about exact colours/scrolls/sizing/stand/flavours. I wanted to change careers and become a mail carrier in the end!!)

Anyhoo, hope she's happy...or I'll have to get a new printer cartridge just to hear about it.

3 layer almond sourcream cake.  ButtercupYellow with White Scrollwork.  Made it for a Teacher Appreciation BBQ.  A little fancy for a BBQ, but I need the practice.  Still haven't found any VIVA, but I tried using computer paper.  How AMAZING is that!!!!  I was so impressed!!!!!!  Thanks for the fabulous tips everyone!

Design taken from Martha Stewart's China Pattern Cake series from the Weddings mag. Done in ivory white chocolate fondant (purchased, no recipe). Cake was triple-layer Dark Chocolate Cake brushed with Grand Marnier simple syrup, filled with double layers of fresh raspberries and milk chocolate buttercream. I did the scrollwork all by hand in melted chocolate.
Tiers are 5.5" tall each. 6"/8"/10"/12". I intended to use my smaller ivory cake stand, but the cake weighed over 65 lbs, so had to use sturdier one.

This was the last cake I did before my tendonitis was absolutely killing me.  I apologized to the client but they were happy with it.  I guess I'm my own worst critic.

This is a devils food and all buttercream 8",6", and 4" mini wedding cake for a friend's anniversary.  They didn't have a wedding cake, so she wanted it to look like a real wedding cake...I hope that it does.  It's my FIRST time making roses EVER!  They aren't super hard, but they're hard to do properly.  Also my FIRST time doing the bead border.  I need LOTS more practice, but it's coming along.

This is the top to my cake.  It is a 6" torte - yellow cake with chocolate syrup frosting.  I was going to paint the scrollwork in old gold luster dust, but I kind of liked it just the way it was.

I wasn't sure where to place this cake - there should be a chocolate cake category.  But I figured a Groom's cake would be as good a place as any!  It is a 6" torte - yellow cake with chocolate syrup frosting.  Cornelli lace on the sides.

This is a vanilla cake with strawberry filling iced in buttercream, with scrollwork on the sides and red roses, greenery & baby's breath cascading down. This is my third wedding cake I've ever made, I was very happy with the way it turned out.
