This was such an elegant wedding cake. In planning, the lovely couple getting married and I went through a couple different ideas, as they used a Mardi Gras theme as a jumping off point for their wedding. They eventually moved away from a literal Mardi Gras theme, but kept lavenders and purples for their wedding colors. Ultimately the bride chose this classic square based cake with two round layers on top with fresh flowers. I think it was simply gorgeous!

This may be one of my favorite color combinations: hot reds and oranges accented with a bold splash of cool blues. Maybe it just looks like the way summer here in North Carolina feels. This cake kind of evolved as I made it, in fact, I wasn't intending to cover it in fondant! The bottom square was Red Velvet and the top was Carrot Cake, both iced with White Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting.
After stacking them I realized I could have some fun with the colors of the flavors graduating asymmetrical fondant stripes from the bottom to the top in red to orange! The cascading cool blue daisies finished off the look of this hot summer cake!

I loved the theme for this cake! My client was hosting a surf themed baby shower by the pool. This cake was part of what I am sure was an amazing dessert table! The cake was a Buttermilk Vanilla Cake filled with Lemon Curd and topped with Lemon Buttercream! The details are vanilla and light chocolate fondant with crushed vanilla wafer sand. So summery! So refreshing!

I'm not sure if I've mentioned this before, but I adore making handbag cakes! Every so often an order comes in that I just can't wait to get to work on, and this Kate Spade New York Gold Coast Elizabeth inspired cake was one that I had to stop myself from working on too early (the whole fresh factor, you know)!
Ironically, I am not much of a handbag person myself, although I found a bag that I love here on a serious markdown and I hope it lasts forever! But the purpose of this post isn't to discuss my style short-comings!!!
This cake is Buttermilk Vanilla Cake with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting and rolled fondant. The customer requested a purple cake (but the bag in real life comes in black and white).
