We were so happy to be able to help her celebrate. She's usually behind the scenes at weddings and this design was her favorite, a cascade of lace with buttons and fresh flowers from Jester's.
Congratulations Melissa, we wish you love and happiness.
This second cake was for a 20th birthday. Chocolate cake. Black and white zebra on the bottom. Black ganache on the top. Serves about 40. The many flowers are all gum paste with pink luster and disco dust. The "20" is also gum paste, with white royal icing details.
The next cake was for a baby shower with a pink and blue theme. The colors were robins egg blue and flamingo pink, and there were egg shaped shortbread cookies with gold speckles, and pink flamingos with blue eyes.
The tiers are separated by a hand-made wrought iron cage holding white roses and eucalyptus leaves, with more roses on the top. The cake stands on a coordinating wrought iron leaf and bird pedestal.
Lots and lots of ruffles and flowers in pink, pink and more pink!
I am sure that Simone and her friends are going to dance off all that sugar...
Then we did a very cheery cake with lots of bright flowers.
The bottom tier is iced a hot pink with green stripes (we call these dot-stripes). The top tier is neon orange with pink hearts.
Dozens of colorful daisies accent this cake, with not a dull shade in the bunch.
It would make anyone happy on a dreary winter day like today.
There was also a cute Mickey Mouse Hat cake, a Peace Sign cake, and several cupcake orders. We have a new cupcake shop in town and cupcakes are suddenly popular here.
Next week is Valentines Day and we'll be making heart shaped cakes and cookies. Can hardly wait!!
