Wedding & Bridal


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!

Teal Petals - A Sweet Cake

Roses are Teal

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 😉  ).

50th Anniversary

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″.

Daisy Wedding Cupcakes

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.

Something Different – Yellow!

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!) 🙂

Bridal Shower

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.


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″.
