Here are 3 cakes that I completed over the weekend. I am so very happy with the results!
This second cake was made for Sean's grandmother's 88th birthday. The top tier is WASC cake with vanilla buttercream. The bottom tier is chocolate cake with milk chocolate buttercream. both tiers are covered with pink fondant. I used food coloring gels to hand paint the flowers and then added satin ribbon to the base of the cakes.
The last cake of the weekend was made for a little boy's first birthday. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Winnie the Pooh, so I was happy to have the opportunity to create this cake. The cake is vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream with Baravian cream filling. I cut out the fondant bees, Pooh and honey pots with an X-acto knife and hand painted the details with gel food coloring. The cake toppers (Pooh standing and number 1) I used fondant with tylose powder.

When she had her son, I felt the same way about him. Love at first sight. They stayed with me for several weeks during one summer and I was so very sad to see them go. This is why...in the middle of my Christmas rush and preparing to travel 8 hours to NC for a funeral at 4 am, I stayed up all night making this cake for "D-Man".
