Daisies and Polka Dots

If this cake seems familiar, it's because I've done it before, on a slightly smaller scale. About a year ago I did the smaller one for a baptism. This is also a baptism cake, it just needs to feed a lot more people.

I decided that this would make a DARLING wedding cake. It just needs that top tier. With polka dots, a fun trendy cake. Without polka dots, an elegant, cute cake. Will someone PLEASE let me do it for you!!!

tigers, zebras, hippos,

lions, bluebirds, snakes, and frogs.

And the final touch, lots of water cupcakes.

Purple Wedding

About a month ago, I was asked to make a "wedding cake" for a bridal shower. It was to be the centerpeice for the shower.

The bride had, what I considered, unconventional wedding colors. They are purple, black, and red. I stuck with purple, much to the host's delight.

I started with the ribbon. I used the same technique that I used on my last cake, I just gussied this one up a bit more. I wanted it to look a little fancier.

Then I added some dark purple lillies to match the ribbon. These are the first lillies I've done with fondant (if you don't count the 5 or 6 that were scrapped because they didn't turn out). They looked deceptively simple to do, but were a little bit of a headache. I think I figured them out though.

The greatest thing about this cake is the size.

Overall, it was about 6 inches tall. I actually had to make it out of brownie instead of cake to boost it's structural integrity.

I love miniatures. This one was just so CUTE!!!
