Recent Cakes

Here are some pictures of some cakes I completed recently. I really enjoyed making these cakes and can see where with each cake I'm getting better. I'm hoping to have many more occasions for cake making in the future.

This is my first wedding cake. I made this for my assistant principal who was married over the Memorial Day Holiday. I had alot of fun doing this cake. Lessons I learned? I must remember that all colors get darker and more vivid over time. This cake was supposed to ivory, but it looks way to orange for me. The bride seemed pleased with it.

This was a wedding shower cake. This cake showcases my first attempt at fondant flowers and the new flourish set I had bought. I really love the way these daisies turned out. The brides mother was very pleased. Just before delivery, she came over and helps place all the flowers and added the antique gold fleur de lis. She was very happy and so was her daughter.

This cake was for a lovely couple's 50th Wedding Anniversary. It was my first attempt at gumpaste bows and flowers. See I did better on my ivory color on this cake. Live and Learn!!!
A close-up of the flowers. Time consumsing but soooo worth it.
My first loopy bow, again, time consuming but sooooo worth it.
