retro lemon cake

This was a 9 in. round, lemon cake with limoncello flavored buttercream. I decided to try this retro look for my co-worker's birthday. The black fondant was difficult to achieve. It was a nice surprise to see a light, lemony coloring inside.

gerbera wedding cake / cupcakes

This is the first wedding I did. It was for 6 dozen cupcakes and a bridal cake. The bride wanted gerbera daisies and her theme was black, white, burgundy with accents of orange and yellow with personalization. The daisies were painstakingly time consuming. I made big and small sizes. The couples' initial were imprinted in the big daises. It took me a whole week to do these. The cake and cupcakes were devil's chocolate cake with white chocolate buttercream. Word was, the bride was pleased!
