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 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.
Happy 1st Birthday! A barnyard full of farm animals greeted the birthday baby, who happily dug into his carrot cake. Made at special request with half whole wheat flour and extra virgin olive oil, the carrot filled cake was slightly more healthful. The cake is covered in homemade marshmallow fondant. The modeled pigs, sheep, ducks, and hay bales are made of purchased fondant, since they aren’t meant to be eaten.
The barn is 3-dimensional and made of golden butter cake covered in fondant.
