Roses Roses Everywhere!

 Stop & Smell the Roses!  Then Eat Them!!
 8x12 sheet cake,  iced w/ buttercream.
With gumpaste roses Please remember that you must plan far ahead!!
 Started with 3 shades of purple gumpaste 
and then when flowers were completed 
I dusted and steamed,  some I sprayed pearl on them

 More Roses!  Wedding cake!

 Here you can see some gumpaste, min,i Burgandy, Calla Lillies
as well as the tiny white flowers and the roses!
 So much fun to create these roses!

 The StarShip Enterprise!
Groom's Cake
(just had  to show the incredible structure my husband made!)
 Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints young women celebration!
New Beginnings involves 8 values.
A small 6" cake for each value then a kinda crazy circus cake for all to enjoy!

 The topper is the young women;s logo.  reminding the girls to 
Stand for truth and righteousness
Made from gumpaste, in advance. 3 sticks 'glued' on the back to stick down into the cake!  Something this large takes a long time to be completely dry and hard, because it is heavy! 

Tiffany Blue Bridal Shower

 Tiffany Blue and Chocolate always look so amazing to me!
 6" square Duff pan used! Pearls & bow made in advance with gumpaste.
I actually used thread and strung the "pearls"
To make it complete I always feel that cupcakes are about how they are set out for your guests to see.
This time I threaded the borders of my cupcake stand with that pretty blue sheer ribbon, then hung crystals at different spots.  Little touches may take a long time to do, but are always a perfect accent!

lady bugs!!

Lady Bug Cake
I do believe this is one of my favorite little girl cakes!
6" & 9"
Buttercream and Fondant.
I love the colors of this cake.
I love the shades of green and pink!  

Brings a very soft look, I feel I do many bright cakes and am ready to really play more with different shades of colors!  OH yes, and the ladybug antenna are made with dry spaghetti sticks!
