Bridal Luncheon Charm Cake

25 May

 I always like making charm cakes and I have made quite a few. It’s fun seeing all the different charms that are chosen for the bridesmaids to pull. The 10″ yellow butter cake was filled with raspberry buttercream and iced in vanilla buttercream. The charms with green ribbon attached, were tucked under the flowers in the center.

 Violets in 3 shades and a pink rose surrounded with swirls and dots completed the design.


70 and Counting

24 May

 This cake was made for a fun occasion, a class reunion with a few friends all turning 70 in the month of May. A yellow butter cake filled with a luscious raspberry buttercream and frosted in almond buttercream. Cake size a 10″ 2 layer. Flowers were buttercream, the 70 was fondant. Flowers around the cake top edge were piped lily of the valley. 

Graduation Cakes

13 May

           This weekend is filled with graduations all over the state, so my congratulations to all the graduates.

 This cake was fun to do. They wanted a bear with a  hat for a male graduating from nursing school. I included a stethoscope and a clip board, all made from fondant. Lemon cake with lemon buttercream.


  This one was for 2 young men graduating from Duke today. Flavor for this one was  yellow butter cake with vanilla buttercream , a  family favorite.

Pretty In Pink

6 May


 I think this one turned out really pretty, soft and romantic looking. Everything a wedding cake should be. I love the shades of the blush roses with a hint of a deeper color. Cake flavors were yellow butter with chocolate fudge filling and vanilla buttercream frosting. Simple but good. The sheet cakes that were added for extra servings were not filled,  just in case SOME people couldn’t eat chocolate. The reception was held at the Country Club Of  North Carolina.  Flowers by Aldena’s florist.
