The first tier is vanilla cake with vanilla butter icing, and the top tier a chocolate cake with chocolate butter icing.
I put Jordan’s name in 3D sugar paste letters on a sugar paste cloud. 🙂
I love trying to give my sugar paste figures a little personality by putting them in different poses and giving them different facial expressions.
This was my first attempt at doing gelatin bubbles as cake decorations – they are a sticky, messy, tricky task and my first bubbles weren’t perfect, but I think they looked pretty good once they were on the cake. 😀
This gorgeous cake from ArchiCAKEture was the one my customers fell in love with,
and I do hope I did her design justice.
This couple didn’t have a wedding cake as such – they had cheese instead! How cool is that!
To decorate it, they ordered this custom-made sugar piece with the couple in their wedding clothes, and their beloved Dachsunds at their feet.
They also wanted to include their hobbies – the bride loves to bake and the groom loves to fly fish.
I had so much fun with this order for little Mira’s first birthday celebration!
The cake has a vanilla bottom tier and a chocolate top tier, both covered with pink sugar paste. The top tier has baby’s name on the front with little gold dragees as accent, and a brown sugar paste bow.
The bottom tier is quilted and the little brown pearls were piped on with royal icing.
The cake topper is a sugar paste teddy wearing pearls and a bow, holding a pink #1.
There were chocolate cupcakes in gold paper cups and vanilla cupcakes in pink paper cups, decorated with handmade sugar paste cupcakes toppers teddybear faces – with bows and pearls.
There were also teddy-shaped cookies, decorated in pink, brown and white royal icing!
Mira’s mommy had a pink and brown tulle tutu made to go around the base of the cake, and the birthday girl had a matching tutu to wear for her party! 🙂 I got this picture from Nadine of the cake with its tutu!
Kim and her family have been regular customers of mine for many years, and this pair of sugar paste cowboy boots was ordered as a cake topper for a joint-60th birthday.
One one boot-strap is the name “PAT” and on the other the name “NAN”, and they are decorated with a floral design.
I also made a silver horseshoe that says “HAPPY 60th BIRTHDAY” with a silver star-shaped sheriff badge.
The gorgeous yellow sunflowers were made by another cake artist as sugar flowers remain my arch nemesis… 😛
The finished cake – baked by someone else – looked liked awesome!
