A Parachuting Grooms Cake

16 Nov

This cake has a lot “going on”. The groom (a highway patrolman) had lots of interests, flying a helicopter, a parachutist, fishing, golf and his team was NCS “wolf pack”. All these things had to be put on the cake somewhere. So this is what I came up with. The off set squares worked out well, the corners gave me a place to display all the different items. The man I made out of fondant, all the others were toys. I created the chute from cake. Flavors of the cake were marble, yellow, and chocolate with almond/vanilla butter cream frosting. The flowers were butter cream and the fall leaves were fondant.100_1507-small

A Touch of Fall

8 Sep

The bride choose this design from a picture of another cake I had decorated,  she thought it looked like bark on a tree.  She liked it because she had a plan for the cake stand, a wooden disk from a real tree. We surrounded the cake with fresh pine, fall leaves,and magnolia boughs. On the cake we placed fresh flowers in fall colors accented with stems of wheat.
