90th Birthday

16 Jul

To reach the age of 90 I think you always deserve to have a party. I was very happy that this mans daughter, Caroline, asked me to create a cake for this special occasion. I asked her what decorations she wanted she said “whatever I wanted to do but he likes golf, tennis and is a big Duke Blue Devil fan.” With those ideas in mind this is what I came up with. The cake flavor is a classic yellow butter cake with vanilla buttercream. I also did a marble sheet cake for additional servings.

Carolina Blue

12 Feb

Since i live in North Carolina it’s only natural that i would get a request for a wedding cake with touches of Carolina Blue. This one is from 2006.  The reception was held at the “Fair Barn” in Pinehurst, one of the best locations in my area for a large party.

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
