Sugar Art For Autism Cake
So honored to be a part of this beautiful collaboration in 2017! The inspiration for my cake design was a beautiful painting by Nekea Blagoev, I fell in love with the way she used textures and shadows in her paintings, I knew I wanted to try to recreate one in cake form! I painted my design with food coloring gels on top of a fondant covered cake. I used a blue gray background with a crackle finish and painted my tree design after the background had fully dried and cracked. The final step was to layer both white sanding sugar and sugar pearls to recreate the layered textures Nekea uses in her paintings. I love the way her use of shadows and textures brings an ethereal feeling to her work! It was such an honor to have the opportunity to recreate her design in sugar and be a part of this wonderful collaboration!
Red & Gold Wedding Cake With Royal Blue Flowers
Hi all, happy to share here a Wedding Cake designed with my favorite colour theme – Red, Gold and Blue. The bride wanted the cake colours to be well coordinated with her Red, Gold and White, and the bridesmaid Royal Blue costumes.
Birch Bark Wedding Cake
Birch Bark Wedding Cake This four tier birch bark wedding cake was created with modeling chocolate on the sidewalls. I chose modeling chocolate and luster dusts because I wanted to create a more realistic bark. I covered the walls of the cake in white modeling chocolate, cut the top off level with the cake and dusted it with the customer's wedding color, Tiffany Blue. To create a sheen to the modeling chocolate bark I dusted the entire tier in a pearl luster dust. Then I used a the wide tipped Dresden fondant tool, to create the straight lines, and an Exacto knife to create the peeled bark effect. Once I sculpted the chocolate I used an oil based food coloring to paint in the dark lines. Once the cakes were stacked it was a matter of adding the sugar flowers. I made somewhere around 175 sugar flowers for this cake. I knew that I wouldn't use all of them but I wanted to make sure that I could create a full arrangement. I did, however, use about 80% of them. When I started the sugar flowers I made just the Tiffany Blue sunflowers. I had to contact the customer because I felt that they didn't look like sunflowers and was worried that it wouldn't be to the brides liking. She sent me an image of her wedding bouquet which had yellow and white sunflowers. So, we discussed it and decided to go with white, Tiffany Blue and yellow sunflowers. I also added sugar Stephanotis, roses and baby's breath. When I started adding the sunflowers sugar leaves it really brought the flowers out. It took me 7 eight hour days just to complete the sugar work for this cake. All together it took around 75 hours to complete but the bride was stunning, the wedding was gorgeous and the cake was a beautiful hit!
Star Wars Cake With Galaxy Cakeboard
I am made a Star Wars (Kylo Ren character) cake for a friend's child, and they wanted a galaxy cake board. I do not have airbrush equipment, so this is done with Wilton Color Mist sprays (violet, blue, black) and a spray bottle of homemade navy color (Royal Blue gel, Black gel mixed with some rum). I dabbed areas with wadded paper towel then splattered white icing on with a toothbrush. I then hit it with a little metallic shimmer spray and sprinkled areas with metallic pewter colored sanding sugar.
