Wedding & Bridal
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″.
Another cake for my husband’s work… 6″, 8″ and a single layer 10″. Fondant covered with fondant flowers.
