Elena And Dean's Engagement Cake
This is just an 8 inch square with a lid also made from cake, all covered in fondant and sponged to get the colour just right. The stargazer lilies are made from my modelling paste recipe and the pink tissue paper is just fondant. This is one of my favourite cakes, and my very first engagment cake!
Marbled Chocolate Fondant
This is from a Martha Stewart design. I love the simplicity and elegance of this cake, although simple looking it was quite difficult to get the marbled fondant looking just right and to get the ultra sharp corners. Still I love the design and the bride was at the reception centre when I arrived to deliver it and she loved it too, so that's what really matters.
Photo Wedding Cake
This was a nightmare cake, I had a difficult time with the pink frames and I really thought with the coloured photos that it looked more like a birthday cake than a wedding cake, the sugar lily on top helped a bit.
