Cherry Blossom Wedding/TOM’S Groom’s cake

ImageImageImage

My sister’s wedding cake.  I looked at about a million pictures of cherry blossom tree cakes and just loved one that I found with the branches painted on instead of using fondant (thankfully that was the one my sister loved too).  It was quite difficult to “paint” on buttercream, but I just love the way it turned out.  The other hard part was forming each and every flower out of gum paste…..I had never even worked with gum paste before this cake so it took me a while.  This was by far the hardest cake I’ve done to date, but definitely my favorite 🙂  Thanks for trusting me to make your cake Kels 🙂

The groom’s cake.  My sister’s husband is a huge TOM’S fan, so we had to do it.  I was so relieved when they turned out good!!

Modern Mosaic

This was a ‘going away’ cake I made for my sister and brother-in-law.  They are both into the modern look and I got the circles idea from some bedding.  It may have looked a little better with white white icing instead of ivory, but I still thought it was pretty cool.  I like the balls in between the cakes, that was the first time I had tried anything like that.

Humpty Dumpty/Nursery Rhyme Baby Shower

I was nervous about making this cake, I had never made anything like the big humpty dumpty before.  I was so happy with how it turned out though.  The fondant was being super cooperative and everything came out really smooth and clean cut.  This cake is definitely one of my favorites.

Batman and Robin (Mostly Robin)

This cake was for a little boy who loved Robin, not Batman, just Robin.  I thought that was the cutest thing ever.  I love how cartoony this cake looks, and I was so excited when I realized I could make Solomon’s name into the bat symbol.  It’s the little things that really make a cake special I think 🙂
