A Glitzy Wedding

This is an adorable Australian wedding.

I have to admit something to you guys. I love sugar flowers. It is most definitely my favorite thing to make in the pastry world. At least so far. So I wanted to do something WILD. And make a cake that has one tier totally covered in gum paste flowers. TA DA!

The top tier is dedicated to her dress. I know: totally gorgeous.

The second tier is just tons of gum paste tulips covering everything. Yes. I said it.

Definitely am thinkin’ peach cardamom cake.

Thanks, Ruffled!

A Slice of Tree Cakes

Look at what I’ve been working on! I did these tree cakes for a Rotary event this past Saturday. It was held at Arrowhead Golf Club, which is just a beautiful setting.

I handmade the mushrooms and leaves out of fondant. The toadstool mushrooms’ spots I hand piped with royal icing. I also hand piped the tree rings and the bark.

I made nine of these cakes, though I’m only showing one. Each one had it’s own mushrooms and leaves. I did different kinds of leaves, though you can’t see them in this picture. Sorry! I’ll have to do some more.

The cakes were pumpkin with chocolate frosting.

Enjoy!

Liz and Riley

Ta Da! I’m so excited to show you all the wedding I made the cakes for! My dear friend Liz got married to the sweetest man yesterday and asked me to do the cakes. It was such a treat. Literally.

This guy is vanilla with raspberry buttercream filling.

There were two of these dudes, one of my favorites: chocolate blackberry whiskey.

This one is toffee.

The big guy is lemon honey lavender, which I do believe was the most popular one of the night. Good thing there was the most of it!

Look at their adorable topper! Liz’s dad made it for them. So cute.

Congrats Liz and Riley! I know you’ll live happily ever after!

(p.s. I think I’ll do another post once official pictures come out, I was just so excited, I couldn’t wait.)
