A Country Shabby Chic Wedding Cake

I was so excited when I met with Brittaney and Joey to discuss their wedding cake. As she told me about her plans for the wedding I just couldn't wait to get started on the cake! I was given permission to post a few of the pictures taken by their amazing photographer Nickole at
The next few are taken by her and once you scroll down to my photos...well, you will know when you get there:) Enjoy!

 Aren't they just amazing! I love all things vintage, shabby chic, white washed and country and I can not imagine a more beautiful wedding.
On to the cake! I loved the simple yet detailed design of the cake. Brittaney told me she loved lace, pearls and paisleys, so that is what she got. The pearls on the top tier and the pearl necklace on the base are all made of fondant beads and strung on thin transparent line.

 The ruffles, bow and lace are all fondant as well.

Congratulaions to Brittaney and Joey! I wish you all the best for many years to come!

Purple Coach Purse

COACH purses are always fun! Especially purple and silver, I thought the combination turned out well.

The difficult part of this cake was the COACH logo on the front of the purse. I thought long and hard about making a mold of it somehow, or finding another way to copy the horse and carriage, but in the end, I piped it freehand. I thought it turned out pretty good.

 The gum paste shoes are always a great addition to any purse.


Care Bears Cake

I love Care Bears! So i was so excited when I was asked to make a Care bear cake.
When i was little, I think it was my 5th Birthday, my Grandma and Grandpa came to visit for my birthday and Grandma made me a Care Bear Carousel cake. I remember it had Care Bears made out of icing on straws like they were the carousel horses. It had a paper cover that made it look like a carousel. At the time I remember thinking it was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen. I would try to sneak into my moms room where Grandma was keeping the Care Bears she was working on, just to get a glimpse of the cake.

 To match this Care Bear theme, the cake was made in a 6 color rainbow. The Care Bears are the little girls favorite toys. Her mom stole them away to surprise her with them on her birthday cake.
It was so much to make this cake and have the memories from my childhood come rushing back.
