Simple and Elegant Wedding Cake

I haven't posted any recent wedding cakes in a while.  Here is a lovely, simple and elegant wedding cake I did in the spring in the wonderful Distillery District of Toronto.

The wedding had fresh tulips scattered everywhere  - I sure fell in love with tulips that day!  I didn't make the tulips on the cake, but when I get an opportunity, I will tackle handmade sugar tulips - they are just too lovely!
This cake had a wonderful, subtle texture that I added to the tiers - loved how it turned out!  And also happy I took so many different photos from different angles.

1st Birthday Cake: Toybox Cake

As a cake designer, there is always a theme or design that you hope someone will order soon or you try to make up an excuse to make it for a friend.  I was excited to get this order for a 1st birthday - I love the toybox design.
 Last year I created this couple's baby shower cake with the yellow booties.  Their daughter just turned 1 and I included some of her favorite toys handmade in sugarpaste.
 Here is the birthday girl reaching out for one of the sugar details - how cute!

Champagne Celebration Cake

A champagne celebration cake for a custom design software company, Jonah Group's, 10th Anniversary.  The bottom tier design was inspired by the design of their blog, A Series of Tubes, and their Twitter page.

This 2-tier cake was alternating layers of chocolate sour cream and vanilla butter cake.  The champagne bottle was made out of rice krispie.
A few years ago, I made a Big Blue Whale cake for their 7th Anniversary.  I look forward to creating their next big milestone cake!  Happy Anniversary Jonah Group!

I just love pandas - this cute cake was for a girl who was celebrating her 22nd birthday!

This cake was layers of chocolate sour cream cake with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream covered in fondant.  The champagne bottle was made out of sugarpaste.
