Red Rose Wedding Cake

I know I said never again . . . but here's a wedding cake I made for a friend this past weekend.

For this cake, the bride requested Red Velvet cake with a cream cheese filling and White cake with a Strawberry filling.  No chocolate!!  I know!!  

I was a bit apprehensive going into the decorating, but it's what she wanted, she loved it and that's what matters!!  It does look pretty stunning!!

I figured out on this cake, I would probably do more wedding cakes if I just didn't have to deliver them!  That's where my stress come in.  When delivering this cake to the church, the road was closed for a control burn.  I mean, I could see the church about an eighth of a mile away, but they wouldn't let us through.  So we had to go the long way around up a STEEP and extremely BUMPY road!!  I about had a stroke!!

But I survived and all's well that ends well.

Congratulations, Bethany & Brad!!

Tinkerbell Birthday Cake

I made this cake for a Tinkerbell themed birthday party.

Only, in this pic, Tinkerbell is missing!!  She was added after the cake was delivered.  So you'll just have to imagine a Tinkerbell figurine sitting up in the flower somewhere!

For this cake, I used whipped topping from Sam's Club with fondant addons.  I picked up the big flower on top at Michael's.

Hope you you had a wonderful birthday party, Nadia!!
