Rear View

I just love this picture. I think it's both cute and a little creepy. This is the rear view of my possum cake. I think the tail is pretty lifelike. Surprisingly, this cake was for a Christmas party. LOL... My clients are so great!

One of my Favorites

This summer I made a cake for a great girl, Lauren. She had a summery, tropical theme reception at the Gateway Grand. This cake was so yummy too! It was my classic white cake filled with pineapple and coconut filling, summery and fresh!


This is a sketch that I made for the garden wedding cake I posted last week. Keep in mind, I'm a sugar artist... not a pen and paper artist.

As you can see, I varied from the sketch a little. The Bride and Groom wanted rounded edges. The scrollwork was changed a little and the flower on the top tier would have been "too much" in real life. Doing a sketch like this gives the bride an preview of what to expect and gives me a basic plan to follow.

Garden Wedding

Yesenia and Alexis had such a beautiful wedding at Kanapaha Gardens. The cake was made to fit beautifully into the the surroundings. The sugar orchids were hand painted to match the orchids that were used in the floral arrangements.
