What is the theme of the wedding? A pretty typical question when deciding on a wedding cake design. The best response I have heard so far is... its old Hollywood glam... and steam punk, with feathers, and red roses....... and maybe abit of outer space.
OK maybe that wasn't exactly how it went down. But that was the main ideas. and I loved every theme for a different reason, but how the heck was I gonna tie it all together? lol. good thing i like a challenge.
my old friend Lemur built me an amazing cake board, with a panel attached on the back.
i planned out a 4 tier cake, with a huge fondant moon as a back drop. A bright red Hollywood red carpet, topped off with a plume of feathers and rowed with red ribbon roses, gears, and cogs.
I was nervous it would be to busy, but I think it all came together perfectly.

and if you look closely you can see the final touch, to bring in a bit more of the outer space...  two adorable space ship cake pops for the bride and groom to feed each other. too sweet.

Pretty PinUp

REALLY?!?!?! SERIOUSLY?!!??!?!??
Could I be any luckier? I have the coolest, awesomest friends in the world. And they order wicked cakes from me. This has become one of my all time favourites. I adore pin up, rockabilly, and retro styles.  This was a fabulous opportunity for me to try some new techniques, and make a super cute cake for a friend.
I tried a new way of layering fondant to make the face. I know she kind of looks like a Family Guy character, but I think it works. She is a-freakin-dorable!!

Black and white

Last year my niece and my nephew got married. Not to each other, of course, lol. But a few months apart. One wedding was huge, elaborate and fancy, the other was low key and laid back.

For the big wedding, they requested a 4 tier black cake. with a lead crystal topper and rhinestone sparkly boards. It was  intense, an alot of work to pull off  in my relatively small space. 
the next celebration had an icy theme with all white and light blues. they asked for a small white cake with their frog prince topper, and a table of white bites. it was a challenge in a different way making all the individual treats. 

caramel pecan tarts

chocolate hazelnut tarts

white chocolate raspberry cream cups

as well as vanilla marshmallows, cake pops, and truffles. 

these projects were completely different, and yet both came from love and family.
