This cake was created to match a birthday party invitation for a special birthday girl. Teal, chocolate brown and white were the chosen colors which work really well together. A stencil (Martha Stewart) was used to create the pattern which also happen to match the invitation. The cake was a vanilla bean cake with fresh strawberries.
This wedding cake was for a couple that won a contest put on by Home Run Inn Pizza and Lou Malnati's Pizza. So fun to make!!! "Through Thick and Thin" was the contest. See the following link for close ups of the cake! http://www.wciu.com/youandme.php?section=home&assetID=10002473
A "sweet 15" party cake with a bright magenta, black and silver color scheme was created to match the party invitations. Scroll work around the cake was stenciled with black royal icing and silver dragees were added for visual interest. An edible black ribbon was also added around the base of each tier. Love the brightness of this cake!
This was a surprise 30th birthday cake for a birthday boy who is a police officer. His wife wanted to incorporate a few of his favorite things such as The White Sox and Miller Lite Beer. She also suggested creating the number 30 out of handcuffs which is fitting for a police officer! Very clever!! A playful theme of floating in a donut topped off the cake. So fun to make!
This wedding cake was inspired by a picture the bride provided me with. She chose to change the flowers to peonies and magenta with tangerine centers. I love the bright colors of this cake! Each peonie was created out of fondant and highlighted with pearl and luster dust.
This lovable monkey was created out of crispy treat and covered with milk chocolate. It sat on a bed of banana leaves which covered a banana cake with vanilla bean buttercream filling. All elements were created out of tinted white chocolate. I'm especially happy with the "chocolate bananas." The monkey's likeness was fashioned after the party invitation my client provided.
This cake was created to coordinate with the client's party invitations. The bugs were hand cut and pieced together. The birthday boy's nickname is also "Buggy" -- fun tie-in! Large oval butter yellow cake with milk chocolate buttercream filling.
