I Havent Done A Big Cake In About 7 Months And Most Of You Know Im Done With Weddings But When My Neighbor Of 14 Years Called For Her Da
I haven't done a big cake in about 7 months, and most of you know I'm done with weddings, but when my neighbor of 14 years called for her daughter, who I've known since she was 6, I decided to do one more. Their family has weathered long list of trials this year, having lost the bride's father (our neighbor's husband) on July 4 this year, 3 weeks before the bride's first baby was born. She was married right after that, and this is her reception cake. How could I say no? I love how it turned out. The sugar sunflowers I made are based on the ones outside their kitchen window, which are the last thing they planted together as a familly this spring. *sniff* Hard day--but wishing them many happier days!
Recent December Wedding All Ivory Fondant And Gp Flowers Airbrushed With Blend Of Bronze And Pearl To Get A Slight Ivory Effect
Recent December wedding, all ivory fondant and gp flowers, airbrushed with blend of bronze and pearl to get a slight ivory effect.
a display for a bridal event this weekend, where our theme was modern. The bottom tier matched the table clothes exactly; it looked amazing. You can see the vignette on our facebook page. love this one! Airbrushed top tiers, hand painted moonstone luster on bottom. Did the piping by imprinting with a diamond mat and then piping with a small rose tip, maybe 101? GP red flowers and accents

ruffled ombre cake inspired by flakey ruffles. Thank goodness for my pasta machine!!
Dogwoods And Ombre
a 4, 6, and 9" round ombre coral cake, IMBC, satin ribbon, and my first try at dogwoods, which I have to say I was beyond thrilled with! starting to really love making some of these when I have time
Our Cake Featured On Hotel Hell
Finally can tell you all--I was thrilled to be a part of an episode filmed here in CDA for Hotel Hell with Gordon Ramsey in February. Here's the cake we used for the wedding we surprised the venue with at the end of the week. The show aired last night, and I was thrilled with how it turned out! You can see more about it on our website and all over FB today :D
This was based on a Martha Stewart weddings mag pic. I made the peonies and orchid-looking flowers, the others I ordered. The eyelet 'look' was SUPER timeconsuming and each hole required six steps. Just the piping around the holes as the last step, took 2 hours. So I don't recommend this unless you have LOTS of time. Which I didn't, but the bride loved it, so I'm thrilled and it was worth it. A nice way to end a really long week! If you were following my post this week, you know what I mean.
Damask And Stripes
This was one gigantic cake. 30" base, 9 x 6" rounds, 18 and 21" dummies, 9, 12, 15" cakes, 6" dummy. Hand painted luster tiers and bows, stenciled damask. About 40 pounds of fondant. I am off for 2 weeks after this one!!! :D
Half And Half Combo
Bride and groom combo cake, IMBC with ganache and MMF draping, GP flowers. Fun design and not as hard as I thought, to do
Pink And Petals
bling and rose petals for a photo shoot, petals made of 50/50 MMF and modeling choc. Loved this one!
Dainty Pink And Navy
a cute small cake with the coolest stand that the bride found at Target I think. Loved that
Lace Mold Applique
First time trying a lace mold. Used a combo of MMF and modeling chocolate. It went well once I figured it out, but I wish it came in longer length than 12" sections
sculped sturgeon for a surprise theme birthday, fondant covered 'plank' board, GP dill, lemon, and fins, MMF airbrushed. Cute cake of an ugly fish lol
Daisies And Lace
6, 8, 10" squares, all IMBC with royal icing cornelli lace and GP daisies. Loved how this came out, and so did they!
Sharps Rifle Replica In Cake
accidentally deleted this! It's all cake and GP, marbled metal look done by black and white gp oversprayed with bronze airbrush, wood stock done with brown and fleshtone combined airbrushing, board is 1 x 12 plank covered in red velvet. Barrel made with gp around a dowel, and I broke it sliding it off, but we fixed it OK. SUPER fun to do.
A ladybug cake with gumpaste accents, airbrushed details, royal icing base, fondant ladybugs. Top ladybug is cake, too. LOVEd this one. Done for one of my favorite wedding planner's daughter's birthday. Design copied from a photo she gave me...can't recall who made the original
