Simple Elegance

This cute bride called herself "marzipan girl" in all of our email communications.  "Marzipan Girl"/Christian was a wonderful bride to work with.  She had a few last minute "kinks" in where her reception would be held that were beyond her control and she handled everything with grace and maturity.  I'm sure many others would have become bridezilla if they had to change venues on such short notice.  
As for the cake, she had very specific orders on how she wanted the cake to taste like... bet you can't guess she wanted marzipan instead of fondant :)
Marzipan is much like fondant but made from almond paste.  It's not quite as sweet and has a beautiful ivory color.  I loved this cake.  The ivory with just a touch of the purple in the flowers gave this a simplistic modern beauty.  With any type of art.. sometimes the more simple, the better.  
This cake followed that rule perfectly.
Thanks Christian for letting me be apart of your wedding.

Larissa and Josh

Larissa and Josh were one of my all time favorite couples to work with.  We had so much fun together planning and designing their wedding cake.  I LOVE it when the grooms get super excited about getting involved in the design process, and I have to admit.. I think Josh has the #1 spot on my list right now.
This cake was designed with both couples different styles and idea's in mind.  We worked hard to find the perfect balance of what they both wanted and came up with this design.  Modern with a feminine touch.

As you can see... it's been almost a year since I have posted anything on my blog.  2010 has been a great year for me both personally and professionally.  I have been busy.. I am still in business... I just haven't blogged about it,  mostly because the craziness of life and cake decorating got a little too nutty for a while and something had to give... so my blog suffered a bit :)
  So here I am... ready to show the world some of my favorite cakes I made in 2010.  I've had some amazing clients and some really fun cakes this year and can't wait to share them with all of you.
