Anderson Wedding 2013
Vintage/Hollywood glam cake. I used glam cake ribbon for that ten inch tier and added fresh roses that she also incorporated into her centerpieces/bouquets. Pearls from a former, fondant is Satin Ice. Petals were used using a large single rose cutter - cut the petal in half to reduce the amount of fondant on the cake. Upside down method with SMBC to get "sharper" edges before the fondant application. Definitely utilized flower spikes as well.
Hello Kitty Cake
Hello Kitty Cake for a girl's 5th birthday. She picked out the colors for the frosting too!
Boulevard "jon's" 47 Cake
Boulevard is a local beer. Wife stated that her husband loved any and all their beers. Requested a beer themed cake and told me it was his 47th!
Buttercream Wedding Cake
Bride wanted all buttercream. It was in the beginning of November but for some reason, the weather spiked to 60*. I posted about this cake and my frustrations in a forum!
Gumpaste deer, deer blind, fondant trees, chocolate rocks. Used buttercream tutorial on here and the grass tip to break up the monotony of the camo. Layered ABC over SMBC. Cake is an 11x18 and 12x15 stacked using the SPS system with an MDF board underneath the cardboard for extra support
Stanton Wedding 2011
chocolate cake with chocolate swiss meringue and strawberry filling. almond cake with strawberry filling and IRISH ABC.
I sometimes help out with education and development at my job. To reward the students with a job well done, I decided to make them a red velvet layer cake with a cream cheese layer. It ended up not fitting in my normal cake carrier.. so I had to freeze it and wrap it in plastic, then carry it down three flights of stairs!
Daisy Wedding Cake
10" x 6" top tier for cutting. Gumpaste daisies in various summer-ish/fall colors. 121 cupcakes (sugar free since bride is diabetic).
My Very First Sugarpaste Rose Wedding Cake
This cake was so crooked.. the ribbon wrapping was terrible, I also ran out of flowers and had to fill in with calla lillies. However, I am the proudest of the topper which is a ronben inspired piece. If I had to do it all over again, I would give myself more time to make and dry the roses. Since then, I've learned so much about gumpaste flowers, and ribbon wrapping, etc. (Cake made October 2009)
Med School Grad Cake
For the bestie. Her brother was very envious b/c he never got one when he graduated years ago!
Crab Boil Cake
This cake shifted just a bit. It was 7 layers tall! Almost a foot in height! I didn't know you could put cardboard inbetween your layers (like every 4") for support, but now I do b/c of you guys! Thanks for all the help and thanks for looking
Xbox Birthday Cake
First time working with ganache underneath fondant. Next time, I'll know to really smooth out the fondant with a hot knife instead of the VIVA method.
Work contest cake. Got the idea from i am baker dot com. Sadly, I did not place in the contest, but it was fun doing it at work! (Oreo truffles beat me out!! :P)
First Ever Grooms Cake (Oct 2009)
Made this cake with my first ever Wedding Cake. Groom is a Marine Corps. We had to travel 3 hours in roughly 85 degree weather. The wedding cake was perfect, but the fondant on this cake slid off entirely! I ended up having to re-knead the fondant and freezing the cake before I could assemble it again!
Tuxedo Cake made with a friend of mine at work. First time using cocoa MMF to dye black.
