 Bryce & Tami wanted a cake for the family the night before they were married!
I decided that it would be fun to have this cake  celebrate their love for baseball and all the games teams they would see play while on their honeymoon!

Oakland A's

                      San Francisco Giants

& the Colorado Rockies!
These are 18"souvenir bats that were cut to the appropriate length and glued to the cake plates.
Topper, pennants and postcards and tiny baseballs are all hand painted and made from gum paste
Cakes are covered with fondant and the stitches are made using edible ink!
Love ya, Tami!


This is my first attempt at gumpaste roses!  
Most of what I didn't do well was easy to hide as they were put on the cake, thank goodness!  I have lots to learn about the finer techniques. 
When is there ever time to practice??

This cake was for a 25th wedding anniversary.  
The wedding cake 25 years ago was white and light blue with red roses., so this is how I was asked to decorate this one.
We have vanilla cake, with buttercream, covered in fondant.
6" & 9" cakes
The roses are gumpaste with Luster Dust.
I also used a clothing steamer to put a shine on the roses.  I do like that effect!
Gumpaste roses are so very fragile!  Each petal has to be placed and left alone or it will break!  
Believe me I know!!

Girls Like Dinosaurs Too!!!

This cake was for a 5 year old little girl that loves and knows her
This made it fun to try to make the dinosaurs look more real than cute!

The cake is marble, yellow/chocolate, covered with buttercream.
Decorated with Pretzel Rod trees, fondant leaves and rocks, the water is blue colored piping gel!

Another Baby's 1st Birthday!!!

Baby Eisley
Buttercream iced, vanilla sheet cake with whipped strawberry filling.
Decorated with fondant bow and dots!

A tiny 6" was added just for Eisley, to take off the cake and enjoy all by herself!

This is a 12" square chocolate cake with whipped chocolate filling.
It is butter cream iced and fondant decorated
The 4" square blocks are white cake with whipped cream/strawberry filling.
The blocks are butter cream iced, covered with fondant.
The blanket and the bow are also fondant.

Square cakes are very difficult for me!  I don't seem to make them sharp enough for my liking!
So much still to learn!
