Wilbur The Wart Hog
Grooms cake for 50. Chocolate cake accented with chocolate hazelnut in the filling and fondant. Rice noodles were used for the "hair", gum paste for the horns & marzipan for his "warts"! What a character. Second photo is listed under the Animals Section. I loved this particular photo because of the sun shining through his "hair".

Out Side Of The Lines...
This towering cake design was chocolate and white layers with alternating fillings of fudge, strawberry and butter cream. Fondant draping runs vertically for a change of pace with gum paste flowers of lilies, roses, stephanotis. violets and small daisies adorning the top. Fondant/gum paste ribbons in light pink loop down the sides with gold wedding bands attached. Edible pearls and small daisies float down the sides. I absolutely loved doing this cake. Flowers chosen were off of the shower invitation.
