This is a 3 tier fondant cake that was simply elegant with white fondant and alternating white and violet fondant roses encircling the cake. This cake tried it's hardest to give me grief, but I didn't budge! The flowers took days to make (not hard at all, just time consuming), the top tier absolutely refused to be fondanted (only took 6 tries, never had that happen before, but I gave it a firm thrashing with my fondant roller and it decided to cooperate after that-LOL!), and it was raining when I was about to head out of town...which made the 2 hour delivery even longer! But all was a success and the cake was beautiful!!
This one was done for the big game too but I have a feeling cake will be flying during the game at their house! LOL!! I'm sensing lots of rowdiness! I'm impartial on that one...I prefer UNC over both of them!
As I said I had to make two of these, but I'm only posting one picture since they obviously look the same. These were pretty big, big enough to feed over 30 people! I made the first one for my sister for her office party and when her boss spotted it, he put in a late request for another to take to the big game Saturday.
No, I'm not talking about FoodNetwork, just a personal challenge for myself with all the cakes I had around this holiday! It was Turkey Day vs. Game Day with a wedding to boot! I ended up doing 6 cakes (including a 3 tier wedding cake) between Tuesday and Saturday of Thanksgiving week. One simple round cake with fresh flowers arranged on it that I don't have a picture of, 2 huge Clemson paws, a Clemson football field, one "Family Divided", and of course the wedding cake. Not to mention the 80-something fondant roses I had to do that took days to make! All this with Turkey Day and Black Friday right in the middle...and ya'll know I shop till I drop on that day!!!! With a lot of planning, and my sister cooking the entire Thanksgiving dinner without my help, it was all done without too many struggles for time...thank God!! Pictures to follow in next posts!
I had delivered the cars cake and attended the party and before I got home that evening I got a desperate phone call from a friend for a last minute baby shower cake that needed to be ready by 10 the next morning! I said of course I can to it, so...Turtle Cakes to the rescue!
I did this one in January for my best girl's son's 1st birthday party. He loves the Little Einsteins! This is the caterpillar from their logo. I used the sport ball pan for the balls and cupcakes for the feet.
I even made him a mini version for his smash cake!
This cake was the first ever of my wedding cakes. It was also my first cake back post back injury. My mom came and helped me with all the baking as to not stress my back too much. Other than the fact that I couldn't lift it once it was built, my only worry was how it would hold up at an outdoor wedding in July with a classic buttercream frosting, but no worries...it held it's own until being completely demolished by all the guests!
This cake was done for one of my mommy friends for her mother's surprise 60th birthday party. White fondant with black fondant ribbons and circles I like the contemporary circles and dots which seem to be all the rage with cakes these days.
I did this cake for one of my high school friends for his wedding. I think the topper is hilarious of the bride dragging the groom by the neck! I hurt my elbow cutting dowels for this cake and ended up having to get my brother-in-law to help me deliver it because I couldn't lift it! I was a busy lady that weekend as my daughter's and nieces birthday party was the next day at my house! Don't think I've ever cleaned so fast in my life!
This cake was done for a friend of mine for her daughter's first birthday. Though the preparation took hours, it was quite fun making all those flowers...I felt like a kid playing with Play-Doh! I love working with fondant! It's just so pretty!
Welcome to my blog! Not much here yet, I know, but give me time to get it done! Being that I am a cake decorator, I have finally decided to delve into the world of blogging so that those of you not on my social networking sites can actually see some of my work without me emailing pictures every time you want a peek. You might want to grab a glass of milk! Enjoy!
I've been decorating cakes for 6 years and I am Wilton certified. I do my work from my home as I am a stay at home mom with 2 kids. I make everything from birthday and shower cakes to custom crafted and wedding cakes. I do NOT believe cake should ever be frozen so mine are always as fresh as you can get. If you have any questions or requests, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
