Quinceañera Masquarade Cake

I did this HUGE cake back in the beginning of March. The girl's theme was "Masquarade". The hand-painted masks are made of gumpaste, with edible glitter. The cake is covered in White Chocolate fondant, with fondant and gumpaste accents.
Cake flavours were
German Chocolate w/ Chocolate Buttercream
Pumpkin Chocolate w/ Dark Chocolate Ganache & Cream Cheese icing
Carrot-Walnut w/ Cream Cheese Filling & Icing
Double Chocolate & White Chocolate Cake w/ Strawberry Filling & Vanilla Buttercream
Gorgeous cake! I had alot of fun with this one.
More to come, lots of recent work I haven't posted yet.

Luggage Cake!

Back in March, I was given some creative liberty to create a cake for a Bridal Shower. The couple are just adorable, an older couple. So, I went with the theme of what a Bride in the 1950's would have to go on her honeymoon.

Luggage trunk, cute little handbag, nosegay, box of "jewels". It was a blast! Every detail you see is made of some sort of sugar work.

Their wedding was just yesterday (March 19, 2011), and I also handled that event as well. As soon as I obtain the edited photographs from the photographer, I will post them!

We did over 700 miniature cupcakes, a small oval 2-tier cake, and GORGEOUS flower arrangements. The large Curly Willow with Hydrangeas, and stunning hanging crystals!

More to come. I'm working on updating much of the recent work we've been swamped with. Much thanks to my intern, Kaylin, who is going to be a FABULOUS event planner in her own right!! I couldn't do it without her!
