Here is another style of cake I saw online that I wanted to try. Slightly time consuming but not too bad. This was for my husband’s work for August…I did not realize I had done this same shade in June! Oh well They didn’t complain…after all, it IS cake!
I saw this method of decorating a cake online and had to try it! I have some kinks to work out, but overall it turned out pretty well. My husband’s coworkers got to enjoy this (and eat the mistakes on it ).
I was recently asked to make a cake to celebrate a 50th wedding anniversary! What an amazing celebration! The “bride” wanted a replica of her wedding day cake (which she had also done at her 40th party). This time, though, she wanted the roses to be a golden yellow, which is the “color” of the 50th anniversary. This cake is 8″-10″-14″.
These 100+ cupcakes were made for the daughter of a friend. I love these bright, cheerful colors! The daisies are gumpaste. The cake is a 6″ cutting cake. For flavors on these we did white cupcakes with cookie & cream filling (6″ cake was also this flavor), chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter filling, and banana chocolate chip cupcakes with banana cream filling.
It occurred to me as I was going through the photos of today’s cake that I really don’t do much in yellow for cakes. I can’t remember the last time (ever?) that I’ve done an all yellow cake like this. I’m not sure why since I love this color and its so happy to look at.
Today’s cake was inspired by a cake similar in style that I ran across in a trade magazine. This cake [for September b-days at my husband's work] is made up of 8″ and 10″ round cakes, iced in buttercream, and accented with fondant flowers. Real simple. It went together so fast and I love that when that happens.
So enjoy this lingering glimpse of sunny, yellow summer. Fall is moving in on us here – we have a frost warning for tonight! (boooooo!)
This was a bridal shower cake done in buttercream. Cakes are 10″ & 12″. The color was a pool blue color with dark brown scrolling and a monogram on front. Included below is the pic of the dress I color matched off of.
This bridal shower cake was based off of another cake of mine (green and pink). This time I did it in a merlot and gold color scheme to match the wedding colors. All fondant.
This cake was for September at my husband’s work. It was based off another cake I had seen online. All fondant with gumpaste flowers. I used my airbrush to give it a gradient. Cake sizes are 4″, 6″ & 8″.
I had the honor of making my mom’s wedding cake in early June. She requested the floating tiers and said she was using pink but otherwise let me do as I wished. So I ended up getting myself some new cutters to learn peonies and added in the hydrangeas and roses I already knew. The rest of the cake is buttercream. The hydrangea blossoms on the side are gumpaste like the top flowers. These tiers were 8″, 10″ and 12″.
