My biggest cake so far. 2- 12" sqaures, 2-6" rounds are cake. The towers are PVC pipe that I had cut to the right height and the turrets are sugar cones.  All buttercream. Took me over 12 hours to make. Also made crown "smash" cakes to go with it.

I made this cake for a Paris-inspired wedding shower.  I had a gold and crystal Eiffel tower ornament that I wanted to include (on top of the puffed heart cake).  The stacked cakes are covered in fondant and decorated with chocolate-covered tuxedo and dress strawberries, as well as fondant roses.  Sorry the details are so difficult to see!

I obsessed about this cake for months!  The bride and groom bought the  Pocket Dragons and wanted a cake to go with them.  Ultimately, after looking at dozens of cakes, this one is modeled after one in Lindy Smith's "Celebrate with a Cake" and Earlene Moore's castle cake instructions.  It is also very much like the wedding invitations.  Except for the dragons and the drawbridge "chains" everything is some form of sugar.  The bottom tier is a full sheet cake.  The towers are modeling paste over pastillage.

I was going to make this for a shower tomorrow and then we had to cancel.  But, I had already ordered the Eiffel Tower and had to make "taster" cakes this weekend anyway, soooo I figured "what the heck" and just went all out.  I emailed the bride and groom the picture and said "in 10 years, you won't remember that you didn't get to eat the cake...enjoy the picture!"  This is my first pink and black cake...I just love the color combo!! :)

It turned out ok.  Wasn't really pleased.  The top had a lean to it.  The faces on all sides are traced onto rice paper with edible ink.  All edible except support rods and cake circles (squares).

We did this cupcake tower instead of the groom's cake with 1/2 vanilla and 1/2 chocolate cupcakes, with coordinating chocolate or vanilla BC icing.  Each is decorated with a chocolate heart made from candy melts.  This was a HIT, and I'm thrilled with the outcome!  Thanks to Helen for the instructions for the blocks!

This setup was originally a Martha Stewart design.  They ended up using a plant stand instead of the stand in the book.  When I got there, it was soooo wobbily!!!  You can sort of see how the cakes were so heavy that they were sagging down.  I just prayed that it made it until the guests arrived!  Each of the seven 10" cakes were decorated differently; I'll post them individually for a closup view.

Attempt to combine princesses and horses.  No problem right!  10" square with a 6" round.  Decorated in buttercream.  Towers are papertowel rolls cut to size and then covered in gumpaste.  Ice cream cones for the tops.  Fondant horse laying down in grass on cake (thanks to imartsy for inspiration).  It was a hit!

I'm not entirely happy with how this turned out, but it worked for what it was.  I accidentally bought reg and pure white chocolate for the blue, so the battlements and the strips under them are different blues (I colored them myself).  I used a buttercream for the icing, but it was a pain to work with on this.  I would paint the gold on before applying decorations next time. Most importantly, I would start much sooner than I did so I could get the rest of what I wanted on there.  The towers are all cake.

I made this using Wilton's Cupcakes 'N More cupcake tower ... I wired the silver carriage to the top, added a bead-head baby, ribbon "bedclothes", and lavender tulle.  Half of the cakes were chocolate (the mom-to-be's favorite!) and half were white cake, all decorated with buttercream icing and topped with a Lindt truffle!   Yummy!  Rich and decadent!

Here's my version of Peggy Porschen's gorgeous Rose Tower cake.  I made the roses out of fondant instead of marzipan, but otherwise it's pretty much the same.  I made it for my friend's engagement party.  Her mom threatened to get a christmas-themed cake from costco.  She came to me, weeping (dramatic brides), and I saw the opportunity to make this cake (about which I'd been obsessing for months).  Finally, an excuse!

Vanilla & Dark Chocolate cupcakes iced with a swirl of ivroy buttercream & large ivory buttercream roses. Simple, but I loved the display.

(One thing I do wish is that they could have given me a larger table....I hate the look of the tower's corners going off each side. Grrrrr! )

This design comes from a bridal magazine that originally showed it with rose pedals sprinkled along each tier and rose buds placed under the topper. However, the couple liked the contemporary feel given by the stark plainness and bold lines. It also helps to draw your eye to the intricate handmade topper that was purchased through the bridal magazine.
