This was a company Christmas Party cake to share with a great group of people.  It is a lemon poppyseed cake with raspberry filling with airbrushed layers of snowy hillsides.  The trees are all imprinted with snowflake patterns and dusted.  The cardinals are made from molds and dusted for shading.

Fall is my favorite season with cool mornings, warm afternoons, and chilly evenings.  Time for beautiful colors, great outdoor sports, and family fun.

I work for a wonderful company who threw a Fall Fling for the employees to get together, celebrate accomplishments, discuss future opportunities, and get to know our coworkers.  We cut this little pumpkin spice cake up and shared it after dinner.


10th Anniversary - Ombre Cake

When a couple celebrates 10 years of marriage, it is heralded as a much more significant achievement these days.  For this couple however, it is no surprise.  They are a very kind and generous couple who not only live together but work together as well.

Bicep Curl Groom's Cake

This unique groom's cake took a little time to plan for so the progress pictures are below.  The vertical forearm are structured using PVC pipe and connectors with metal flanges.  The flanges get covered in Modeling Chocolate first, then wrapped in rice crispy treats and again Modeling Chocolate and fondant.  The horizontal bicep and shoulder are made of red velvet cake, all covered in fondant and airbrushed for realism.

Work I progress, step 1

Step 2  Step 3, finishing proportions and barbell size.




Gender Reveal Cake

This super cute gender reveal cake is strawberry shortcake with fresh strawberries and buttercream.  Frosted in pink and blue buttercream rosettes with gum paste Converse shoes on top.  The color of the cake and buttercream inside reveal the gender of the baby on the way. (It was pink!!)
