Brandon's Metallica Groom's Cake
I made this cake for Brandon who loves Metallica, and since a Grooms cake should reflect the Groom's personality I decided to give him an iPod with all his favorite Metallica songs loaded on. And of course the iPod needed an iPod dock to make the set up complete.
Cake Flavor: Chocolate Better than ?... which included a chocolate infused chocolate cake with chocolate chips and toasted pecans
Frosting: Creamy Carmel Frosting and Marshmallow Fondant

Little Pink Purses

These little Pink Purse Cupcakes were created for a bridal shower where the invitation that was sent was also a pink purse.
Cupcake Flavor: Marbled yellow and chocolate Cake with Pink Buttercream icing.

When I was finished with all the cakes I had a few that I had messed up on, so I let each of my girls decorate one like a purse. When I told my little Emma that she could have one of the purses she giggled and said "Oh mommy I'm so excited to make a purse." Giggle, Giggle. "An' it's purple, Oh!" She exclaimed excitedly, "it will match my shoes!" She's 3, I think I'm in trouble for when she's a teenager!

Citrus Wedding Cake:

This cake really shows Summer time is here with bright vibrant citrus colors that are set off by a back drop of smooth white fondant, brown apple blossoms cascade through falling slices of citrus fruit. Each tier is separated by fresh limes, lemons and oranges. Sliced oranges, lemons, limes, and grapefruit accent the base and cake topper pulling the citrus theme from top to bottom.

I made this cake for my sister whose favorite color has always been bright sunshiny yellow.  I helped her plan and decorate her entire wedding reception.  This was one of the funnest most colorful weddings that I've ever been to.  Thanks Annie for letting me be a part of the planning process!

Three tier wedding cake was made with three unique flavors to pull out the citrus flavor of the fruit that sits atop each tier.
Bottom Layer: Orange Marmalade cake with White Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting,
Middle Layer: Raspberry Lemonade cake with White Chocolate Cream Cheese and Raspberry-Lemonade Frosting
Top Layer: Creamy Key Lime Cake with Lime pudding filling and Coconut Buttercream Frosting.
All decorations are edible.
