50th Anniversary Cakes

30 Jun

The cakes are small but the occasion was very special.

50th AnniversaryI baked a single 6″ and a 10″ 2 layer chocolate fudge cake.  The frosting was vanilla buttercream. The customer requested white roses with a soft green leaf. The placement of the roses was left up to me. The ornament on top was a gold cross with 2 rings and bells at the bottom with a 50 etched on them. Simple and very pretty.

Cake #2 had a different look, they wanted yellow butter cake with chocolate buttercream. This one I did with yellow buttercream roses and a darker green leaf and a 50th pick. It was also a 10″ 2 layer.                                                   50th Anniversary

Square Wedding Cake

21 Jun

Wichert/Miller wedding cakeIt was a very HOT day but the  cake survived the heat. Even the fondant bow on top. The 3 tier squares were off set with 3 different designs, dots, scrolls & stripes. Flavors were yellow butter cake with raspberry buttercream filling & vanilla/almond frosting. Fresh flowers and rose petals added color to the cake.

 

              Grooms Cake

The grooms cake flavor was chocolate cake with chocolate fudge frosting. The ornament, a bride & groom riding a motorcycle.

 

The reception was held at the Pinehurst Members Club in the Donald Ross Grill room. This is part of the original country club. A beautiful room, with a vaulted ceiling and large round pillars. A great room with a lot of history.

A Shower of Daisies

Bridal shower

I think daisies make the perfect topping for cupcakes. They cover the entire top and you can either pipe them on or do as I did and make them up ahead,  add a few leaves and pop the flowers on. I made 2 & 1/2 doz. for a bridal shower. Flavors were chocolate fudge cake and yellow cake with vanilla buttercream.
