This was the perfect cake for a winter wedding, classic black & white! This is a 3-tiered fondant cake. The bottom and top tiers are round and the center tier is a hexagon. Each layer has black ribbon at the bottom and hand-piped black scrolls. The bride provided black & white silk flowers that put the finishing touches on this cake. The flavor was almond with raspberry.

I did a large order of cupcakes for a wedding in September and I found the photos just the other day. I couldn't pass up posting them because cupcakes are my favorite and these flavor combinations were SO yummy ! ! ! !
They used my 6-tier cupcake stand to display these yummy cupcakes and a 6" fondant cake on top (not pictured) to cut for pictures.
Dark chocolate cupcakes filled with chocolate ganache and peanut butter frosting. Topped with a peanut butter cup.
Coconut Cupcakes filled with a coconut cream and topped with coconut frosting and toasted coconut.
Almond Cupcakes filled with fresh raspberry preserves and topped with raspberry buttercream and edible sugar pearls.

This cake was made for Jaycee, a huge Boise State fan!!! The cake has the Bronco's logo on the front and glittery stars on wire. The flavor was chocolate with cookies and cream.

I sat down with the bride and groom and started from scratch to create this cake for their beautiful wedding. They wanted something with a vintage flair, but also somewhat traditional. This is an ivory fondant wedding cake. The bottom tier has brush embroidery (which is one of my favorite techniques). There is a middle separator tier with pearls. The top tier has white rolled ribbon flowers. The topper was provided by the bride & groom and went perfect with the cake! The flavors were chocolate with vanilla pastry cream & almond with strawberry preserves.

This Hello Kitty cake was for my baby girl's 4th birthday party. She loves hello kitty and asked me almost everyday if I would make her a hello kitty cake for her party, haha. We had a dessert table too, so I didn't want a huge cake (I always end up eating the leftovers, not good for my figure). Happy Birthday Kalea Ana, you light up our lives!

This 4-tier wedding cake has to be one of my favorites! The entire thing is hand-piped and took a lot of time, but was well worth it. The bride provided a picture of the cake that she wanted and I did my best to re-create it. She called later to tell me that they really loved the cake and got lots of compliments at the wedding. The flavor was vanilla with vanilla.

The couple who ordered this cake are fun and easy going and wanted something to reflect their style for their wedding. They didn't want the "traditional" wedding cake. Their colors were white, turquoise and black. We decided to incorporate the black in the roses. I tipped the large white roses with black and then painted the small roses & buds entirely black. They turned out perfect! The flavor was lemon with vanilla.
