This was one of my favorite orders yet. With Ange being a very close friend from college, I wanted to go all out for her Bridal Shower. With the Bride and Groom cakes, I was able to try out a ton of new techniques that I've been learning in my online courses. I'm especially happy with all the gum paste flowers! I can't wait to continue practicing with these.
Ange was proposed to with a ring and a white pug pup named Willie. So Willie cookie favors were an obvious choice!
This cake was made for a local friend we met through Instagram! His girlfriend requested a chocolate mousse cake with a cat face on top and I was happy to oblige. This a chocolate lovers cake - with dark chocolate mousse between layers of chocolate cake covered in ganache.
A sweet lil Lemon Birthday cake with modeling chocolate details. This was my first attempt at making and using modeling chocolate and I love it as a medium. I've been taking several classes online at Craftsy.com and gaining a ton of helpful tips and practices. I'm looking forward to practicing my flowers - both modeling chocolate and gum paste!
I made this Mermaid cake for Birthday girl, Addie, and was able to work on a few new techniques. I used gum paste for the very first time to model the mermaid, rocks, seaweed and starfish (using brown sugar for sand), as well as the ombre scallops. I made fondant from scratch to use to cover the cake (it tastes much better than the store bought stuff when it's made from marshmallows!). The cake was vanilla funfetti filled with chocolate ganache and frosted in (another new technique) vanilla bean swiss meringue buttercream. Overall, I'm very happy with the result! I still need a ton of practice covering cakes with fondant smoothly and modeling faces, but happy nonetheless ( and so was Addie!).
For this fun party, I was informed that the birthday girl liked pink, purple and rainbow and they'd be having spa activities at the party. The cookie favors were a mix of lipsticks, nail polishes and sleeping masks personalized with all the girls' names.
The cake was vanilla bean with vanilla buttercream and decorated with fondant lipstick,
nail polish and flowers...and a ton of rainbow color!
I had the pleasure of baking for this wedding in the beginning of September - showcasing all fall flavors! The bride had a clear vision of what she wanted and supplied the burlap and white ribbon to go around the cake topper. Flavors included Maplenut with browned butter pecan frosting, Pumpkin with cream cheese frosting and vanilla with cinnamon frosting. Congrats to the Bride & Groom!
This was one of the most exciting treats to work on! Mike and Michelle kept the gender of their baby a secret from themselves and their family and had me make a cake for them to cut in front of everyone for the reveal. There is no mistaking that blue! Congratulations!
