Live Laugh Love
French vanilla with lemon buttercream and fondx vanilla fondant. Groom's cake german chocolate with coconut pecan frosting and chocolate buttercream. Gumpaste calla lillies, longhorn symbol. Live Laugh Love piped in royal icing and then painted silver. This was the first time I tried getting sharp edges on my fondant by turning the cake upside down. Gotta say it's the best my fondant has ever turned out! Will keep this technique in my toolbox!

French vanilla with strawberry buttercream. 10" and 8". Covered in fondant. Critters and trees are made of a 1/2 and 1/2 mixture of fondant and gumpaste.
James And Stef's Wedding Cake
10, 8 and 6 inch tiers. 10 is dark chocolate with chocolate buttercream, 8" is red velvet with cream cheese buttercream and 6" is butter with buttercream. Covered in Red Satin Ice fondant darkened just a smidge. Ribbons and bows are fondant. Flowers are anemones, daisies, stephanotis and tiny blossoms all of gumpaste. I loved the drama of this one. At the venue it was placed on a red cake stand. My nephew and I worked together on this one. It was a lot of fun working with someone.

Melissa's Birthday Cake
German chocolate with coconut/pecan filling and chocolate b/c frosting. Satin Ice fondant. Bow, flower and shoe are made of gumpaste. Used air brush paint to paint the side of the box. Silver luster dust w/ rum to paint the silver accents. This is my first attempt at a shoe. Didn't have a mold so just winged it. I had a blast making this for my daughter's 24th birthday.
Fleur Di Lis Square Wedding Cake
French vanilla with bc. Covered in vanilla fondant. Initial "B" on top and roses are gumpast. Ribbon at the bottom of each tier is fondant. Scrollwork was cut from fondant using the Cricut Cake. This is the first time I've used the Cricut Cake and I have to say I was impressed. Hardest part was getting the scrollwork off the mat without it breaking or stretching out of shape. The bottom tier is a cake dummy and the separating tiers are also dummies.

That is where I found instructions, recipes, etc. This a wonderful site!

A friend was making a cake for someone at her church who was turning 100 and wanted something special to put on top. So I made a plaque from fondant and attached gumpaste flowers. The pearls on the edge were molded from fondant.
Took a class on gumpaste flowers. Roses, carnations, calla lillies, stephanotis. Can't wait to do more.

This was done for a first anniversary. Flowers are hibiscus, plumeria and orchids and made of gumpaste. Shells and sand dollars are gumpaste. Cake is french vanilla with buttercream and vanilla fondant. Fondant was painted blue.
Baby shower cake for a little boy. Inspiration was taken from the crib set that the new mom was using in the nursery. Bottom cake was french vanilla with bc and chocolate and vanilla fondant. Top cake was chocolate with bc and vanilla and chocolate fondant. The figure on top is supposed to be a lion but looks more like a bear. Next time I do this, instead of using fondant for the lion, I will try poured chocolate for the mane.
