Bouquets of pink and red roses cascade gently down this black and white, paisley shaped wedding cake.  I really learned a lot while making this cake, it was my first real experience in piping.  I learned that piping by hand takes longer than you think!

Cake flavor: Red Velvet with Cream Cheese Frosting 


This cake was made for a wedding that was held in a garden belonging to the bride's grandmother. It was so adorable!  She had quirky things to discover in every nook and cranny of her back yard (notice the weathered kitchen chair hanging from the tree in the background).  The bride's choice of sunflowers was perfect for her outdoor summer wedding.

Barnyard Bash!

My daughter Izzy is obsessed with horses. If she could she would eat, breathe, and live horses. So it was no surprise when she turned three and I asked her what she wanted for her birthday she told me, “A horse mommy. But not a not fake horse, I want a real horse!”
“But Izzy,” I said. “Where would we keep a real horse?”
“In the backyard,” she said matter-of-factly.
“It’s too small, we just don’t have a place for a real horse .”
“Uh-huh mom. I could put it in my bed!”

This was the very first wedding cake that I ever made.  My husband had a co-worker that we were both friends with that was getting married and was kind enough to let me experiment on.  At this point in my baking carrer I had only made a handful of cakes.  She was very brave.
Cake flavor: Butter Cake with Vanilla buttercream frosting.
