Fall Leaves / Fall Wedding Cake
3 teir fall wedding cake covered with fondant, with sugar leaves, berries & twigs. Hand painted vines. Ribbon is non-edible.
Flip Flop Cake
2 chocolate cake flip flops with hand-painted & shaped fondant & sugar straps. This cake, by the way – was never eaten… she said it was too pretty to cut. 🙂 what a great compliment!
Spaghetti & Meatballs Cake
1 layer white cake with buttercream icing, fondant “spaghetti”, chocolate covered cookie & creme cheese “meatballs”, strawberry “tomato” sauce, green chocolate “oregano”, white chocolate “parmesan” and real parsley. If I ever had to make it again, I would use some kind of icing instead of strawberry sauce because it ran down through the cake an seeped out around the outside of the cake and made everything a little messy – but it tasted great!
Seashell & Calla Lillies Wedding Cakes
2 layer white & chocolate cakes with buttercream icing, sugar calla lillies, white chocolate hand-painted seashells, royal icing coral, and sugar pearls
hmmm… bad lighting – looked much better in person 🙂
Fuzzy Brown Teddy Bear Cake
3D mini-bear with white cake and buttercream, colored with cocoa powder instead of food coloring dyes for 1 year old b-day party. Looks like this little bear had a long winter… 😉
We are not local to your area and LOVE the fall wedding cake with the sugar flowers. Can you give me some info on how these awesome leaves were created?
Hi Cheryl, Thanks for the feedback! I believe those leaves where part gumpaste and part fondant. I found that the gumpaste dries too fast and the fondant dries too slow so I mixed them – rolled them out in a pasta machine, cut them out(some with cookie cutters, some by hand) & viened them, let them dry on uneven surfaces for 1-2 days then hand-painted them. Finished them with a little pearl dust and attached them to the cake and each other with royal icing. Hope that helps! Tina
