Ooh La La – The Eiffel Tower Parisian Cake

12 Mar

Can I say that this was one of my proudest moments as a cake momma? Well, it was.

That Eiffel Tower is made of Royal Icing, and it broke in three different places during transport. I had some extra royal icing in a piping bag, but despite my best efforts, I could not glue those pieces back together to get the tower to be stable. My partner stepped in and constructed a little stabilizer made of white cardboard. (Thank you, Joel!) And voila!!!

The first striped tier is 10″ and is Death By Chocolate.
The second damask layer is red velvet. That damask pattern in stenciled on with royal icing.
And, last but certainly not least, is the royal icing Eiffel Tower.

One of my PROUDEST moments EVER as a cake decorator. I want to give some proper credit to Sugar Duchess for her FANTASTIC tutorial on the Royal Icing Eiffel Tower. It was one of the best tutorials I have ever found to date! Check out her site for more exciting stuff!

Baby Butt!

7 Mar

My contribution to the whole baby butt cake theme. The tiers are as follows:

Bottom: 14″ Dulce de Leche

Middle: 12″ Vanilla Cake w/ Cookies and Cream Filling

Top: German Chocolate Cake w/ coconut pecan caramel frosting

The baby butt was Dulce de Leche

I have a new techniques going on here. The bottom tier is the newest. That’s a damask stencil of pink frosting over the fondant covered cake. I was very happy with the method of stenciling. It was a very stunning reveal.

Hollywood Mike

18 Jul

I decided to call this cake Hollywood Mike because of the young lady’s love of Hollywood Glam as well has her desire to give a nod towards the former King of Pop. It was indeed a cake that utilized many different fondant and gum paste techniques which was extremely enjoyable!

I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.

The cake in it’s full glitz and glory!

Masquerade Cake

2 Nov

Let me first apologize for the poor quality of the photos. I did this cake a day ahead of time and I was not there for the pick up or the pictures. I do make real masks out of leather and so I was very excited to make this cake. I hope it’s the first of many in this theme. (BTW- That  “18” candle was not my idea!)

Gray Elephants

Teddy bears and duckies are so passé! What’s cuter than little gray elephants for a baby shower? These are sugar cookies iced in almond flavored royal icing.  There are 75 of those cuties jammed in that basket.

On the Way to the Ball

9 Mar

I’ve been going through old photos. This is a Sweet 16 cake I did for a teenager, who was killed a year later. I had so much positive feedback from her family and friends about this  cake. Although the celadon / lime green color was not my choice, I tried to make her cake look like the  Cinderella fantasy she wanted. I think it came out well, and I’m looking forward to future orders for a similar theme.

Vanilla cake filled with marzipan and almond butter cream. Coverd in almond buttercream and royal icing.

Crown & Gloves Side Cake, same flavors as main cake

Glass Slipper- What's a Cinderella cake without the kicks?!

Full Table View- I think you can see a bit of the "Free" cake the hall threw in for free for their party. No wonder they wanted one of mine! 😉
