This bridal shower cake provided the test-run of the wedding cake’s flavor combination. Fondant covers a chocolate-vanilla marble cake with whipped chocolate ganache filling. The water-color style painted flowers are grape hyacinths, one of my favorite flowers.
A vegetable garden cake for a friend who is an avid gardener. Most of the veggies are ones that she will (hopefully) be enjoying this summer. The cake is a new recipe, a banana cake with sour cream ganache.
The Cake’s vegetables include carrots, leeks, lettuces, trellised tomatoes, cabbages, beets, and peas.
A cake to celebrate the end of a continuing education class for a soon-to-be journeyman electrician. Two tiers of chocolate sour cream pound cake, covered in vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream, are accented with homemade fondant decorations. A couple of outlets on the front (one a GFI) and wrappings of orange and green wires completes the first tier. The second tier is made to look like a spool of wire and topped by a fondant wire stripper tool.
