30Th Classic Stripes
This was for my daughter's 30th. Gluten free Almond Coconut cake with vanilla mousse filling and white chocolate ganache. Delicious. Younger sister picked design for the cake so this was a team effort. Not claiming this was healthy, just gf. ;)
Samples For Bride To Be
Multiple flavored samples for a bride to be who opted to order without a formal, "sit down" consultation, saving money and time around Christmas. :) Win - win. Each included a small sample of the filling she wanted to sample also.
Wife bought for hubby's bday who is a Saints fan and loves his pho with hoisin and sriracha sauce. Bride included smallest details, even listing the ingredients in the bowl.
Princesses and topper were purchased by client. All other custom fit/made and edible. :)
Chocolate, Wasc and Red Velvet cake. All iced in bc. Fondant beaks, feet, arms and head gear. Snow and 'fluff' on the hat...cotton candy. Merry Christmas!
Tx State Fair Collaboration
A group of Texan cake and cookie artists came together to do individual pieces to highlight iconic things from the fair. My contribution was made specifically with the police that work the state fair in mind. After the cake was complete and the pics were taken, the cake was immediately delivered to our local PD (where it was very quickly polished off ;)) This was to thanks to our PD and the DPD for the hard work they do every day. The tiers were all made by hand as I had no Texas shaped pans. Red velvet and wasc cake were chosen flavors. Link to the video: https://www.facebook.com/texaspridesweetstyle
Tried to add a French flair with the pastel stripes & ruffle. To help emphasize theme, French macarons were served also. Btm tier, carrot cake, cream cheese filling, covered in white chocolate ganache, topped with fondant stripes. Top tier, chocolate cake, choc bc filling, covered in chocolate ganache and topped in fondant. Cosmo was added to help give a soft, little girl look to the cake. The flower centers were covered in 'Baby Pink' disco dust as was the #3 topper. Skye is grand shug's favorite character.
Happy to have heard from client when this one had made it to it's destination some 25-30 miles away. Top heavy & was concerned with doweling as armature was not used.
Floral First Smash Cake With Cupcakes
Fondant flowers were removed after photos (so no choking hazard for baby.)
Pink And Gold 1St Birthday
Smash cake; fresh strawberry. Cake for guests; wasc Precious baby girl's first bday cake. Baby sitter had taught her to blow out a candle before her party. So cute! * The light was shining a little too brightly into the window & pink here is a little lighter than they actually were.
Fondant covered fresh strawberry cake. Client found pic online, my attempt to recreate. Has anyone ever 'stood you up' in coming to pick a cake up? Only the 2nd time this has happened to me & so it was with this cake. Ever hear of turning lemons into lemonade? I changed the name on it to my s-I-l's name and daughter picked it for him as he was just celebrating his 29th. True to form, he did not 'partake,' but daughter took to work where they ate all in 1 hr. :) Look for the silver lining. :)
Finally, an order with a 'slice' of tree...(not a stump?) Happy to get to do this cake! Was provided with a pic of a cake originally by, "Always with Cake." Changed a few things, happy to have been ask! *Be sure to prepare the fondant cvd tree 'part' at least the day before so some of the shininess has time to dry.
Monica's 50Th Black, White & Pink
Board was trimmed w/gold glitter ribbon. Monica's 2 daughters gave her a surprise party and the cake inspiration came from the invites. Loved them.
Ballroom Dancing Silhouette
A sweet husband ordered this for his wife's birthday to portray their favorite past time.
Last min order for frantic dad who forgot to order the bday cake. Last min meaning day before. ;/ Pool party and high humidity = simply iced cake.
