Wedding-Style Damask Shower Cake

Damask Wedding Cake

I am so, so excited to share this latest cake with everyone…  It’s a bridal shower cake inspired by the shower invitations and meant to look very much like a wedding cake.  It’s two tiers - one vanilla, one chocolate, each filled with vanilla buttercream and iced in vanilla fondant.  It’s decorated in a damask pattern with royal icing and accented with hand-made sugar flower and the bride’s new monogram.

That Takes the Cake 2009 Competition - Post 2

Sunday, March 1st, 2009

The awards ceremony for this year’s competition was held today , and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place medals were awarded in each divisional category.  I had two cakes entered in the Adult Beginner Tiered Wedding Cake category, and to be honest, I wasn’t expecting anything.  Given some of the beautiful cakes in my division, I figured this year would just be a learning experience.  Imagine my surprise when I not only placed, but I actually took the gold medal in my division!  It was a great validation of the hours of work put into the competition cakes.  :)   Woohoo!  Next year, I’ll technically still be in the beginner category… already making plans!

That Takes The Cake 2009 Competition — Post 1

Sunday, March 1st, 2009

Wow!  What an experience attending/competing in my first cake decorating competition this weekend.  With easily a hundred (probably more) cakes competing from bakers ranging from child/teen to adult beginnering all the up to professional/master, there were some amazing cakes.  I entered two cakes this year - both Tiered Wedding Cakes in the Adult Beginner division.  My group ended up having 9 total entries, which I’ve pictured below.  I’ll write more when I find out who won!

Mosaic Tiered Wedding Cake

Monday, February 23rd, 2009

This weekend was dedicated to one of my entries for this year’s Capitol Confectioners Club show/competition (That Takes the Cake 2009).  I decided several weeks ago to attempt a three-tier wedding style cake decorated in a tile-like mosaic.  With 12 different colors of fondant, this was a big project and took most of the weekend.  The “cake” is actually styrofoam since it’s for the show - an interesting new medium to work with.  :)  Now that this cake is ready to go, I’ve got 1 or 2 more that I need to rock out for this weekend!
