Eagle Scout Cake

This cake was made to honor a young man that as earning his Eagle Scout Award.  He wanted a lemon cake and lemon curd filling.  The icing is vanilla buttercream.  The medal on the top of the cake is a replica of the medal he was receiving at the Court of Honor.  I fashioned the red/ white/ and blue ribbon out of buttercream icing.  The silver parts of the metal were made of fondant that was luster dusted with silver luster dust.  I had fun carving the eagle design out of the fondant.  Congrats Andrew for such an accomplishment.

A Sweet Pea Baby

A sweet Pea Baby cake.  This cake was made for a baby shower for a boy.  The baby was modeled out of gumpaste and wrapped in a pea pod.  Then  more little pea pods were added at the bottom border.  The cake was vanilla with vanilla buttercream.

An Alice in Wonderland Inspired Wedding Cake

The bride, her mother, and I got together and designed this cake based from the Alice in Wonderland themed reception they were having.  They really liked the concept of the Hat and teacups.  The reception was beautifully decorated, using tea cups a lot.  So using a tea cup at the Cake Topper was perfect.  So the red rose rose bush was a red velvet cake with white chocolate icing.  The black mad hatter hat was carrot cake with cream cheese icing, and the teacup was white cake with vanilla icing.  The cake was so much fun and I enjoyed making it.  Congrats Abbie and Charles.

Work in progress:  Still Adding the roses to the rose bush.
