Recent Cakes

I have been soooo busy lately. Funny, usually during the non-wedding season, most cake designers use the slow period to catch up on stuff, like inventory, cleaning, learning new techniques and such, BUT, I have been so busy I haven't had the chance to do this. Right now, I am cooking dinner, so while it cooks, I thought I would write a bit about what I have been up to.

First, wedding season started early this year with a wedding on Valentine's Day. This particular cake was for Krystal and Danny. Her colors were gold and ivory, so we came up with this design based on one of Peggy Porschen's designs. I absolutely LOVE her work. Cake was covered in fondant with scrollwork painted in gold luster dust with gumpaste flowers.

I was approached by one of my regular clients, Diane who asked me to design her son's birthday cake. He loved bowling and requested an orange creamsicle flavored cake. Little did Diane know, but I was also asked to design her birthday cake at the same time by a close friend. Diane loves to shop at IKEA (who doesn't???), so I came up with an IKEA shopping bag cake for her. Happy Birthday Diane!!!

Another birthday cake I did for a little boy who turned 1. I guess he loved Curious George, because his mom requested a cake with a modeled monkey sitting on some building blocks surrounded by palm trees and bananas.
