Blue Splendor

This bride requested her topper placed underneath my 13-inch roman columns, surrounded by handmade floral garlands. The separator columns are also surrounded by handmade garlands and a small matching bouquet tops the cake. Graduating colors of blue fondant made this cake a "wow"! Ropes of fondant were braided and wrapped around each tier for borders.

Aloha! Blue and Gold

For a tropical-themed Cub Scout Blue and Gold banquet, this is a white cake with mango puree buttercream and lime curd filling, iced with a classic egg yolk and sugar syrup buttercream. The bottom tier is draped with a modeling chocolate "grass" skirt, and the top is ringed by chocolate painted palm trees. Tropical flowers made with fondant and hand painted surround the cake and the chocolate "29" topper. Hand-made chocolate fondant coconuts are sprinkled all over the top of the cake, and were a huge hit with the scouts. The coconuts tasted like Tootsie Rolls!

Daisy Display

This gorgeous Springtime bouquet is made of fondant daisies. Lemon cake with strawberry filling and lemon buttercream made for a delicious cupcake display as well the main cutting cake. A tiny matching fondant daisy topped each cupcake, the colors of the brides bouquet. The fondant on the cake was brushed with shimmer powder to make it look like the satin of her dress.
