My daughter requested a much simpler cake. Blue and green vanilla layers inside, with simple cutout flowers. Thank goodness!
Nice job on both cakes! And congrats to the newlyweds!

RE: Decorated cakes
Wow! That's really great work!

I keep saying I'll try to work with fondant -- since molding it is close to molding clay, which I do a lot -- but I never get around to it. Now I have some good examples to go by Big Grin

... in a world where I feel so small I can't stop thinking big!

Thanks for the love! Hints for you! Not all fondant is created equal! I don't use Wilton if I can help it, I buy from a web site a brand called Satin Ice, it tastes and handles a lot better! I've never tried making my own. There's plenty of work already with cake, buttercream and the decorating! The other important hint is that fondant is heavy, be sure to have adequate support in your structure if you are building tall or shaped! Hope to see some of your adventures!
Doing a throwback pic. First cake I made using fondant for the pedals and stalk

Hi folks been away for a while. Big changes at work. Lots going on. Thought I'd share a pic of a wedding cake I did for a friend. She asked for a little bling. I think it's my best effort yet.

Smile. I found watch battery operated LED light strings with on/off switch at the crafty store, Said operational time was about 8 hours. Arranged them on the bottom of the upper plate. Imbedded the switch in the plate and placed on the back side. The one improvement if I make chandeliers again is to use in-facing mirrors for top and bottom and small mosaic mirror bits on the post to throw more light /sparkle.
