7-tier Wedding Cake

There is nothing worse than non-stop rain showers when you have to deliver a 7-tier wedding cake.  But I was very lucky, the rain subsided in the evening when I had to deliver this wedding cake to a reception held in Toronto's Distillery District.

This off-white 7-tier cake was alternating tiers of zesty lemon and strawberry vanilla cake.  Each tier was different heights and decorated with different styles, textures and lustre to give it a tall, elegant and grand look.
The bride provided me this photo of the gorgeous flower on her wedding dress which I replicated in sugarpaste.  I wanted it to be perfect - I actually re-made the flower 4 times to get it just right.

Bridal Shower Cake n' Cupcakes

As some of you might know, I'm getting married... yikes... in less than 2 months!  So, when I was asked to make another wedding dress cake, I had lots of inspiration from my own shopping trips.  The client allowed me to create whatever design I wanted for the bridal shower - so the bride's real dress design is still a surprise.

The cake was gluten-free chocolate cake and the cupcakes were zesty lemon with lemon buttercream.
And no.... this is not the design of my wedding dress.  That is still a surprise too!

3rd Birthday: Animal Print Cake

It is so fun to make animal print cakes - the cakes just come alive with every spot or stripe you add.  This cake was for a boy turning 3 years old.

I can't take the credit for the design as I was given a photo of a cake to replicate and I just added in my own flair to it.  The cake was 3 tiers of chocolate sour cream cake and all decorations are handmade out of sugarpaste.

Simple and Elegant Wedding Cakes

Happy July everyone!  Summer is definitely here and lots of wedding celebrations.   Here are a couple of photos of simple and elegant wedding cakes with handmade sugarpaste flowers.

I always find it interesting to see how they look before they are delivered and then finally when they are set up at the event.   The lighting, how the table is set up and what angles can be seen.
This wedding took place at a wonderful and charming restaurant in downtown Toronto called La Maquette.
This wedding took place at a The Old Mill Inn in Toronto.
