50th Anniversary for Jack and Myra

14 Jan

 I have been making cakes for this couple for all types of occasions for such a long time and I was so happy I was asked to create a cake for this special celebration. Flavors were lemon butter cake with lemon buttercream frosting. The yellow roses were made from buttercream. The design a simple old-fashioned ruffle drape, topped with a 50th emblem and a gold ribbon bow. 


Celebrating 60 Years

1 May

This cake was made for a couple celebrating 60 years of marriage at the Members Club in Pinehurst, NC.  The mixed flowers on top were handmade from buttercream, the 60 was fondant brushed with a little edible gold dust, the bow was satin ribbon. The sheet cake frosted in vanilla buttercream was a 12×18 topped with a 8″ round.

A Golden Anniversary

5 Sep

The ruffle drape has always seemed like an “old-fashioned” design to me, and it’s an easy one to do, so I decided to use it here. The roses are buttercream, the cake flavor was a yellow butter cake with vanilla buttercream, very basic but delicious. It was topped with a 50th emblem and a small gold bow. Cake sizes were 6″-10″-14″ to serve 100.

 The cake was delivered to the Pinehurst Members Club.

A Small Anniversary Cake

21 Aug

This was to be an Anniversary cake  for a small party. Just a simple 3 layer 9″ cake, but I thought it needed a little something extra so I added the 6″ top. I also made 4 sugar paste gardenia’s (My first try at these flowers), I brushed them     with pearl dust to give them a little shine.and made fondant leaves and brushed these with a soft green dust. The flavor, a yellow butter cake with almond buttercream. The customer was very pleased and happy with the way I had decorated the cake.

50th Anniversary Cake

This cake was for a 50th Anniversary but they used a different color other than the usual gold/yellow seen at most 50th. I loved the purplish/lavender colors, especially since it was Easter weekend. The cake tiers ( 2 layers each) were  6″-10″-& a 14″ yellow butter cake with almond butter cream. Fresh flowers were provided by the florist. The party was held at Little River Farms Golf and Resort.

A Different 3 Tier

18 Aug

I haven’t used these stands in quite some time but i’ve always liked the way the cake  looks using them. They make a small cake appear much bigger and it’s very easy to cut.   This one is a 6″-8″-10″ yellow butter  cake with raspberry buttercream filling and almond frosting. I piped a criss/cross design with lily-of-the-valley on the sides. Fresh flowers provided by Aldena’s florist.Brooks 5th Anniversary

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
