Lavender Stripes and Purple

30 Apr

Ending the month of April with another stripes and dots cake. I like the color combination of lavender, dark purple and teal. The bright pink rose adds just the right “pop” of color that I needed. Cake flavors were classic butter with black raspberry filling and almond buttercream frosting.

Some call her Mamma, others call her Miss Mary, either one will be fine. Celebrating a 90th birthday is a special occasion.

 

A 40th Birthday

This is one of my favorite flavors, yellow butter cake with a yummy chocolate frosting. The pink flowers I made with my vanilla  buttercream recipe. What’s your favorite cake?

A Christening For Two

26 Apr

The lady who ordered this cake (her name was also Betty) wanted soft colors with shades of blue and a Cross in the center. The Cross was white chocolate and the flowers were off white buttercream so they would match. Cake flavor, classic butter with almond buttercream frosting. Congratulations to the parents of these 2 fine baby boys.

Bridal Party Cake

26 Apr

Stripes and dots seems to be quite popular. The lime green and dark blue makes this cake stand out. I added a few flowers to the design. The message on top was something special just for the bride. Flavor, lemon cake with lemon buttercream frosting.

A Cake for Granny

8 Apr

I had only a few of the buttercream flowers leftover to decorate this cake with (it was a last minute order) but I like the way it turned out. It was made for one of my favorite customers and she loved it. Looks kinda like Easter. What do you think?

Colorful Cupcakes

Cupcakes for Easter. Two flavors, yellow butter and chocolate with almond buttercream frosting. All the flowers are buttercream.

Sugar Flowers

4 Apr

As you can see this is how I spent my Wednesday afternoon. I’m getting ready for Easter. I have sheet cakes and cupcakes to do and they need lots of flowers. I like to make a rainbow of colors and types of  flowers. They are buttercream so I let them air dry till I can pick them up and place where I want them on the cakes/cupcakes. I’ll post the cakes later.                                                                   

           Have a Happy Easter !!!

White Roses and Freesia Wedding Cake

1 Apr

The day (March 31st) started out gray and rainy but by late afternoon just in time for the wedding it cleared and was beautiful. The reception was held at the Fair Barn in Pinehurst, NC.  The room was filled with tables covered with bright purple cloths (in my pictures they look blue), in the center of each table a small clay pot filled with a mixture of  beautiful flowers, nice and simple.  As I’ve said  before, this is a great place for a wedding reception.

                                                   

 

 

The 3 tiered wedding cake flavors were classic butter cake filled with vanilla/almond  buttercream and iced in vanilla buttercream with a small bead border. The silver stand added just the right touch. On the top, a monogram M. The flowers,  white roses and freesia. A simple design but elegant. Flowers provided by Aberdeen Florist.
