Wedding Cake: Pink, Gold and Cream

Made this 4 Tier (14in, 12in, 10in and 8in) Cream and Gold Wedding Cake, the cake was made to feed 150 (not including the top tier) July 12th 2014.  The cake starting from the top: Key Lime, Pineapple Coconut Layered w/Pineapples and Coconut, Red Velvet w/Bavarian Cream and Butter Almond w/Fresh Strawberries iced in Buttercream-Cream Cheese Frosting w/Fresh White and Pink Roses.

I was excited, anxious but scared at the same time with this cake.   It was my first 4 tier cake, I made what was suppose to be one for my sister's wedding a couple of years ago but had mishap with one of the tiers when delivering the cake so it became a 3 tier (I'm still disappointed to this day).   So it was nerve wrecking doing this one.  I transported it unstacked and just took the time to stack it all when I got there.  I was excited because it was my first official wedding cake for someone outside of close family and friends, so it was a "real" wedding cake order.  I did a tasting with the couple, contract signed and everything.  I can't wait for my next wedding cake order!!!!!!!

 Thank you as always for showing support!!


Birthday: Super Hero Cake

Made this 3 Tier (10in, 8in, 6in) Super Hero Birthday Cake (Batman, Spiderman, Captain America and Superman) July 12th 2014.  Cake was white cake with cream cheese frosting, covered in fondant with a little rice krispy Batman topper. 

My little topper looks kind of funny, first time making a figure out of rice krispies, so it didn't turn out like I wanted, next time I will stick with fondant/gumpaste figures, lol!! Oh sorry for the bad pictures, I really need to invest in a really nice camera. :-x

Thanks for stopping through!

Birthday: Pink Castle Cake

Made this 1st Birthday Pink Castle Cake June 28th 2014. Vanilla cake w/strawberry buttercream, covered in fondant. The tower in the middle is Rice Krispies, the other 4 are cardboard. (sorry for the bad photos bad lighting and it was raining outside so there was no good natural light had to lighten them myself)

My poor little figure didn't turn out the way I wanted it. Time really got away from me doing this order. I was working on the all the details on the castle itself (those darn cones on top of the towers were a little harder than I remember making cones out of card board to be) when I realized I totally forgot about the figure and even though it looks pretty simple, I had to rework it a couple times and by that time, it was time to deliver the cake. So I wasn't all too thrilled with how it all turned out (had more I wanted to do) but the customer said it was beautiful (shrugs).
