A Royal Wedding...Well, Almost

This cake is my first LARGE wedding cake. It is very special to me as it was lovingly made for a wonderful young woman and her new husband. Kristie Neeser, now Watkins, was in youth group when my husband and I lead the youth group. She also babysat our children. She is now an accomplished young woman who married quite a hilarious young man. It was a beautiful wedding; an inspiration. I felt that the parents on both sides were blessed to have their children marrying such wonderful people.

The consultation for the cake happened entirely via email as the bride and groom reside in London, England. It was quite fun!

The second and bottom tier were White Almond Sour Cream with Strawberry buttercream filling. The top and third tier down were Chocolate Rum with Chocolate rum and fresh pineapple filling. That was the most delicious cake I have ever made! AMAZING!

Busy December

This cake was supposed to be a surprise from a husband to a wife. The surprise was rearranged by other Christmastime goings-on. The wife, however, was still pleased. I thought the whole gesture was sweet. (No pun intended.)

This cake was for a wedding. I made two and forgot to take a picture of the other one. The other cake had a six inch round on top and was covered with filigree and silver dragees. It was so fun to decorate.

December wedding cake #1

    This is my first of three   December wedding cakes.
This cake was a spice cake with
cinnamon-sugar buttercream
filling and cream cheese butter-
cream frosting.
   When the groom took a bite, he exclaimed, "This cake tastes
SO good!" That was music to this cake decorator's ears!
   Congratulations, Brandon and Lexi!
I love this picture. This is why I love making cakes is because it makes people happy.

This is a "Welcome Home Baby" cake for my good friend, Maria, who loves any excuse to buy one of my cakes...even if it means having another baby!

This cake was for Maria's son, Zane. He made the lego bridge and put the snakes, Tonto, and the Lone Ranger on the cake. The teepee is a sugar cone. I thought this cake was a lot of fun.
