♥ Love is Sweet! ♥

This cake was made for a conversation heart themed bridal shower.
If you look close (click on image to enlarge) you can see that it is
sprayed in an edible shimmer to make the hearts look real:
Don't need a cake this big? I can do small cakes like this for your Valentine ♥

instead of the 'weight' of the product.

Barnyard Buddies Birthday

This entire cake is edible. It is based on a double tiered 10-inch cake
and the barn is all cake also. It is covered in fondant with all fondant details.
It was such a fun cake to make. I loved molding all of the animals and using all of the bright colors. The birthday party was set up so cute too. There were bales of hay everywhere and a barnyard scene set up for partygoers to take their picture in front of. The birthday boy was being strolled around in a little red wagon... too cute!

A "Challenging" Cake

This cake was made for a man's 50th birthday. He rides in the
Pan Mass Challenge and enjoys Grand Marnier.
His wife came to me with the idea of him crashing into the bottle with a tear in his eye.
She was great to work with and I am glad that I was able to bring her vision to life/cake! She also ordered a bunch of cupcakes which were displayed all around the cake.
