Looney Tunes Wedding Cake

What a fun cake that I was so happy to design - with a unique theme and very fun. The couple requested a looney tunes themed cake which was not overpowering, but elegant, yet fun. The love looney tunes and have always defined their relationship like the cake topper - Mark Anthony and Pussyfoot.

The main flower for their wedding was cala lillies so I was able to encorporate it into the cake. I made a large sugarpaste flower for the front and back and each character holding a mini-cala lilly. Each of the characters: Mark Anthony, PussyFoot, Tweety Bird, Yosemite Sam and Pippy LePew were all handmade out of sugarpaste. Challenging, but I was happy with the results!

Each tier was 4-layers of alternating Strawberry Vanilla cake and Lemon Sour Cream cake with Vanilla Swiss Meringue Buttercream

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!

Originally, I thought about making a cake shaped like a turkey - but I didn't have that much time this weekend.

So, here is what I came up with instead to celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving.

The cake was a 4-layer chocolate sour cream cake and vanilla butter cake with swiss meringue buttercream. The leaves, turkey and stuffing were made from sugarpaste.
