Funky Christmas

We are nearing Christmas and I wanted to share with you a funky cake I did last year around Christmas time.  This cake was so much fun to make.  It takes a creative and super fun bride and groom to pull off having a wedding cake like this one.  These guys rocked! They had the vision and I was one of the lucky vendors to be apart of making that vision come to life.
There is not much to say about this cake.. the multi colored "spikes" coming out of the cake add even more dimension to this topsy turvy style cake.  The black and green are bold colors that help make the patterns on each tier stand out and just shout "fun"when you look at it.

Buttercream Beauty

For those of you who are fondant haters, I have good news for you! Buttercream is making a comeback!
As a cake decorator, I have to admit I prefer fondant over buttercream just because of the versatility and amount of creativity you can have with fondant, but that being said, buttercream cakes can be very elegant and modern.
Buttercream can have a modern look to it by using texture in the frosting.  With this cake, we frosted it with a mango creme cheese icing nice and thick (that's the trick to have great looking textured cakes), then we angled a knife and swooped the frosting down on a diagonal.  At the reception, the florist went to work with all the flowers on and around the cake.  This cake was the main centerpiece of the reception.  It was in the middle of the room on a huge table full of flowers.  It turned out beautiful.  Thank you Jamie for letting me be apart of your wedding.  I had so much fun working with you.

Symbolic Wedding Cakes

This is one of my favorite cakes of the year.  This bride and groom were so amazing to work with.  They had booked me over a year in advance so we had plenty of time to make their cake just how they wanted it.  I love the clean lines and the black and white.  It gives this cake a ultra modern, cool look.  What I loved most about this cake is the design.  The couple loves tattoo's and they have a dear friend who is a tattoo artist.  Their friend created this design with the couple in mind, we then made a custom stencil and hand painted it onto the cake.
Whenever you can put personal touches to the different elements of your wedding, it makes more memorable and special.

Cupcakes, Cupcakes, Cupcakes

Brides are still wanting cupcakes incorporated into their wedding reception.  I recently did this fun cupcake wedding for an adorable couple.  
The lime green and black color palette was a great combination and looked so cute with the sugar gerb daisies on the cake and cupcakes.

Let It Snow

In lieu of all the snow we've been getting the last couple weeks, I thought I'd share with you this cake today.  If you want a winter wonderland themed wedding, this is a great type of cake for your reception.  The use of flaked coconut gives the cake a fun texture that resembles snow.  It's also a great alternative for those of you who might not like the look or taste of fondant.  Spray the cake with a little edible glitter and you have a beautiful winter themed cake.
