Thomas and Anna’s Wedding Cake

17 Nov


The day was a little damp and cloudy but inside the Fair Barn in Pinehurst, NC a wedding reception was being prepared for Anna and Thomas. The room was filled with beautiful flower Table arrangement arrangements and the dance floor was ready for an evening of fun.100_4413

The wedding cake was also ready and waiting for the happy couple. Cake flavors were a classic yellow butter cake with 3 different filling, mocha butter cream, a creamy chocolate butter cream and vanilla butter cream (always a favorite). The 4 tier square cake with an off-set design was iced in vanilla butter cream and decorated with dots and fresh flowers.


Grooms Cake

11 Sep

This was a first for me, making a baseball cap for the top of a cake. I haven’t covered many cakes in fondant, I prefer to use a buttercream frosting for my cakes. But I think it worked out pretty good here.  The round cake was baked using half of the ball pan, the brim was fashioned using fondant covered light weight alumiunum sheet, cut and bent to form the shape needed then inserted under the fondant covered round cake.  The cake flavors were yellow butter cake with navy blue and white almond buttercream frosting. The B stood for Barton College and was cut from fondant.

A Shower of Blue

Bridal Shower

 This was a fun cake to do. Since it was a square (10″) I decided to make it look like a gift box for the bridal shower. I iced the top in blue, and  used a large rose tip to create a band around the top edge to make it look like a box lid.  The sides i iced in white with blue swirls. The bow and tiny blue flowers are fondant, the white roses are butter cream. Flavors were marble cake with raspberry butter cream filling and vanilla frosting.

Green is THE color

Herman wedding cake

I have made so many square cakes this year but i had not used the color combo of  brown & green. Each tier was wrapped with a dark brown ribbon. I piped a willow branch on each tier  to give the sides a design. The flowers  were provided by Aldena’s Floral Design’s. The flavors were classic butter cake filled with raspberry buttercream and iced with vanilla buttercream. The cake was topped with a single M monogram made of pearls.Monogram close-up

3 Tier Square Wedding Cake

24 Jul

Dasen/Rush Cake

Seems squares are very popular this year. This couple was very easy to please not only with the flavor (yellow butter cake with vanilla/almond frosting) but with the design as well.  They decided to have a different look for each tier, dots, swirls & stripes. The white roses and the bright blue flowers added the finishing touch and were provided by Maggie’s Farm.

I also received a very nice phone call from the Mother of the bride today telling me how much she loved the cake, not only was it pretty but was so delicious. That’s the kind of phone call you always want to get.
