This cake is from several years ago, but I still love it. The flowers were all huge-- Calla lillies, Roses and Gerbera daisies-- so in order to use them I wired them together in drapes and let them cascade down the sides of the cake. It turned out so gorgeous, and you would never know that the bottom two layers are actually cake forms- only the top two were real cake, which turned out to be just the right amount at this upscale reception that already had lots of delicious refreshments.

This bride loves bright colors, and I think that she got the mix just right. The brown ribbon and green berries give these flowers just the perfect touch to keep the palette from being too bright, while still incorporating some gorgeous pink daisies and orange roses. I loved the groups of three dots that she wanted all over the cake, and chocolate cake with raspberry filling is one of my favorite combos.
This is my sister's wedding cake, which she wanted to coordinate with her elaborate, ivory wedding dress. I thought that the criss-cross zig-zag lines added such a fun and elegant touch, and it looked breath-taking in my parent's back-yard at the reception.
I made this mini cake for a cake walk at our church. The top layer is only 3" diameter, and the bottom is 6". The whole thing is about 8" tall and is absolutely adorable! The girl who won it was totally ecstatic. :) This would make such a cute birthday cake. :)
One of my most popular cakes around home is Strawberry-Soaked birthday cake. It is not fancy, but my family has seen enough wedding cakes, and they really just want something unbelievably decadent and delicious-- and this is it. It has to stay in the pan (since it is soaked in strawberry sauce and features a very creamy frosting), so I have to find more creative ways to decorate....
