Hannah & Jeremy
Red Velvet with White Chocolate Swiss Meringue buttercream under fondant and as filling. Gumpaste lisianthus, hydrangea's and old fashioned-ish roses... I didnt really know what I was doing with the flowers, was totally winging it, the underside of the roses were so ugly! But I am pretty happy how it turned out.
His & Hers Anniversary Cake Pops!
Made his and hers cake pops for my brother and sister-in-law's 16th Anniversary. My brother is a huge Steelers fan. I really need to get a camera, my cell phone camera is NOT cutting it. TFL :)
Alexandra & Taylor's Graduation Cupcakes!

Samantha's 8Th Grade Graduation Cake
6-9-12, MMF/Gumpaste. Colors started supoer bright, but promptly faded..grrr. I even thought I was upgrading from Wilton colors to Ameri Colors Electric . Oh well. TFL
Tropical 10Th Anniversary Cake
I was really frustrated with this cake... tried the ganache teqnique for first time... struggled, tried a different MMF recipe... struggled (hence the shells at the bottom, trying to hide the fondant that was too soft and bunching up...thanks DH for the idea) thought it was pretty level, walked away for a couple hours and it pretty much smooshed on itself and had to shim it level on the cake stand..and the stencil... I swear I think it was made out of tissue paper..it was sooo thin, I wanted to cry so many times this weekend! Ugh just glad its done and over with! Inspired by a cake I saw online... but was totally unable to execute. :)
White On White Damask 15Th Anniversary Cake
Buttercream MMF with royal icing damask pattern...I have been wanting to do two-tone white on white. Bottom layer chocolate cake with Oreo SMBC filling, Top layer butter cake with Blackberry SMBC filling (Delish I might add). Purple flower made out of gumpaste. Flower was almost a loss when I tried to paint with Wilton gel color on the dried petals...didnt work. Tried to mute down the mess with iridescent petal dust... so it wasnt what I planned but ended up ok.
Coconut Cake With Gumpaste Dahlia
Butter cake with coconut custard filling and a vanilla bean cream cheese icing covered in coconut for a school Dessert Auction fundraiser... nothing too exciting., they wanted "homey" looking desserts. But it was my first attempt at making a dahlia. Was in hurry so I free handed all the petals, no rolling or cutters. I dont think it is too anatomically correct so to speak and not very delicate...but I was happy with how it turned out on short notice. TFL
(Double) Engagement Cake
This cake was inspired by (and not nearly as fantastic as) Jaime3679 's competition cake, big thanks for the inspriation! My 3rd fondant cake, for a double engagement party. One bride's color's were pink, the other green. Other colors at the party were black and white. Bottom tier chocolate with choc mousse filling, top tiers french vanilla with french vanilla SMBC as icing and filling.
60Th Anniversary Cake
Ok, I didnt even know this photo had loaded, I was having so many troubles... I just need to state that I loaded this so that I can start building a portfolio (and hopefully see a progression in skill as I grow) ... this was my very first fondant covered cake (self taught, hadnt taken any classes) and am mortified that the only picture I have you can see very messy kitchen in the background. Definately had some troubles, and it was weird how one lump of fodant tinted one color ended up three different colors on the cake ( I have since learned that lavendar and pink will have the trouble) Anyway, thanks to those who looked without any description.
Black/white/pink Anemone Wedding Cake
Black & White Wedding cake with a touch of Pink. Fondant covered, "pink" vanilla cake, with cheese cake filling. Damask pattern stenciled with RI. Inspired by many different cakes here on CC... so thank you! I ony make cakes once in awhile, like maybe once a year, if that. This was my 3rd one wth fondant and by far the largest cake I have ever made. Had a few flaws from inexperience that frustrated me, but all in all pretty satisfied... Bride & Groom very happy!
