Wedding Cake with a Hint of Purple and Football

Several year ago, the groom was the recipient of this Raider's Helmet Cake.  I had fun keeping this cake simple and elegant with a touch of purple, a touch of the Raiders and also the couple's two cats.  I didn't get a good close-up of the handmade sugarpaste characters - but I wanted it to look "Superman-like".

Carousel Cake... and Cookies!

I had the pleasure of designing a celebration cake for my friends' 10 month old twins.  They were visiting from out of town to celebrate their Christening.  I mentioned previously about having fun with fondant covered cookies and this design was perfect!!
 The cake was alternating layers of zesty lemon and chocolate sour cream cake with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream with that added bonus of sugar cookies.  I also displayed it on a lazy Susan so it was fun to spin it around.

Wedding Cake with Grey Accents

One of my favorite cake designs - so simple and elegant.  This wedding cake was delivery to the lovely venue, The Berkeley Church.  All 3 cake tiers were chocolate sour cream with chocolate swiss meringue buttercream.
