red ribbon carrot cake

This is a 8 in. round, birthday cake made out of carrot cake and brown sugar buttercream. I tried to do a drapery effect with ribbons. The super red color was hard to achieve.

birthday carrot cake

This one was a surprise birthday cake. All he requested for were a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting and the cake to be natural tone colors (his wife's favorite), the rest was up to me. The carrot cake recipe is a nice simple one, only carrots and walnuts, no raisins! I decided to try ribbons made out of half gumpaste and fondant. The result was amazing, although very delicate.

baby shower cake

This one is for a baby shower I did for my co-worker who was the hostess. It is a 6in. round, red-velvet cake with white chocolate buttercream and a 10in. round, chocolate pound cake with chocolate buttercream. The baby blocks are red velvet petit fours. The blocks were the hardest to work with (as you can tell, its not perfect).
