Black & White 40th Birthday Cake 1000x500

This 40th birthday cake is a “double barrel” cake, which is basically two 8″ round tiers stacked and iced to look like one super-high tier. Happy 40th!

Holiday / Christmas Cake with Fondant Bow

Happy holidays, everyone! I can’t believe we’re halfway through December. I haven’t done a bit of Christmas shopping - ugh!! However, I have been busy designing away - here’s the latest project. This holiday-themed design included red, white, and silver accents, including a large fondant bow topper. Of all the “stripe-y” cakes I’ve done, I’m most pleased with the vertical stripes on the bottom tier of this one… :)

I’ll have several more designs to share before the holiday break… stay tuned!

5-Tier Modern Cake with Handmade Sugar Orchids

Sunday, December 6th, 2009

I can’t tell you how excited I was to design this cake! The design is is five tiers, inspired by the lovely centerpiece arrangements created by Michelle at the Silver Vase. Each tier was covered in pearly white or teal fondant and accented with brown satin ribbon. My favorite part of the design is the cascade of delicate, handmade sugar orchids.
