Awaiting The Arrival
This is a 6" barrel top & a 8" bottom 'dummy cake' that is 1 of 4 that I will be presenting at a Curated Baby Fair. The design begins with a white fondant covering. The bottom tier was done by dusting edible fabric in chocolate on both sides then cutting them in 1x1 squares & adhered to the sides in a scrunchy type fashion. The top tier I draped the edible fabric leaving it in it's shimmery pearl color & swagging it to one side & hanging straight down on the opposite side tied back with pink satin ribbon. Inside of the draped swag I made a flesh tone figurine of an expecting mother out of 50/50. Adorning the drapery I made a few hundred smaller faux sugar flowers in white, pastel pink & pastel blue. Surrounding the top of the bottom tier & encircling around the bottom of the top tier I placed smaller sugar flowers with pastel mint green pearls. A top of the top tier are small faux sugar flowers adorned with a pastel purple pearl insert surrounding a large white ranunculus sugar flower with a newborn flesh tone baby figurine beneath it's petals. The cake drum is covered in a chocolate brown satin band of ribbon.
This was for the little one's who live next door to me. A 3 layer 6 inch round. 2 layers of devils food & 1 layer strawberry (all scratch) Fill was ABC & covered in vanilla fondant.

3 Tier Wedding Cake
Delivered this cake yesterday (May 24th, 2015) here in TN. The request was for a 3 tier, top 2 tiers being Vanilla & the bottom tier red velvet with all butter cream fillings (groom didn't like cream cheese on his red velvet) I enrobed them in vanilla fondant which I colored in 2 shades of blue & top tier was done in silver with a coin silver metallic finish. All my flowers were done in gum paste, fantasy roses, small rose buds, wild roses, white blossoms, baby's breath & French tulips trimmed in silver. This cake was presented on a pillar stand with a lighted flowing waterfall surrounded with silk rose petals in shades of blue. I never met the bride, her request was through an affiliate vendor of mine & I had 4 weeks to complete as she had moved her wedding from September back to Memorial Day weekend. Everything was done by email. I met her & the groom for the very first time as they were being announced as Mr & Mrs through the venue door. Our cake was an absolute hit with everyone, the wedding photographer must have taken 20 pictures alone of it. Very exciting for me, an unusual first for me & it made me feel awesome because I do cake & make people smile!
