5 Tier Wedding Cake In White, Gold And Red Roses
This was a 5 tier red velvet wedding cake - a simple classic design separated by real red roses, a customized leaf stencil and a gold ribbon on the bottom of each tier. I made custom separators for the florist which was a bit of challenge but I learned a bunch from that experience.

Elegant Bat Mitzvah Cake
A 4 tier Bat Mitvah cake based on various techniques by Mich Turner. Bottom tier was piped using the Queen Elizabeth Diamond pattern, the second tier is from the classic Venice Lace pattern while the third tier is a play on the Vintage Rose Crown Lace pattern. The top tier was fake so the parents could take it home and was based on the Pearl Feather look. The feathers were hand painted and embroidered with royal icing dots. The Tiara is made out of gumpaste and airbrushed/highlighted with rainbow disco dust. The hanging jewels were done with the use of an 8" cake platform (12" hanging jewels, diamond confetti in the center with floralights on both ends so they light the inside of the column at night). This cake serves 200 people.

40Th Birthday Wine Barrel Cake
This was a surprise 40th birthday wine barrel cake. I did ask for some advice on this cake in the forums so for those interested: -This cake was for 110-120 servings (after carving) -There are four 4" tiers inside the cake for a total height of 16". Each cake was 10" and torted. -Tiers were supported by SPS system (9",10",9" to account for some carving on the bottom and top tiers). This is the only reason I was able to drive this cake from NY to NC, 9 hours, without it failing. -I used wood grain texture mat, made small impressions with a ball tool to add more realism to wood then hand painted with dark brown gel color. Diluted some brown in vodka to apply color to wood and added concentrated color inside small impressions - Wood fondant pieces were applied in two pieces, meeting at the center. Seam was hidden by the center silver metal band. This is the only way I could properly control applying to this size cake and have it taper properly on the top and bottom. - Green and red fondant grapes were made using the tutorials on cake central. - Spigot was fabricated from gumpaste a few days earlier and airbrushed in gold and then highlighted in gold dust (dry)
Kentucky Derby Cake
This was for a client's surprise 40th birthday around the time of the Kentucky Derby. Horseshoe cake topper was gumpaste as were the roses (airbrushed in red and black highlights).
This was a communion cake for a dear friend of mine. Bottom tier is pink filigree, top tier is quilted with a bit of a cushion effect and the flowers are from a tutorial Marina Sousa has on Craftsy. Love the look of modern ruffled flowers when they're highlighted/painted. Cheers!
Two tier confirmation cake with vintage ruffled roses, sugar flowers and a swag on the second tier. The little girl's mom mentioned that she loved unicorns so I added the little guy in the corner (out of gumpaste).
