Rose Petal Wedding Cake

I was so excited to be a part of this beautiful wedding. The cake design the bride wanted was so perfect, and I think it turned out beautifully! Sugar rose petals are cascading down an ivory buttercream cake. Some of the petal edges were painted with gold luster, which gives this cake a little bit of glam!






The groom's cake was a traditional chocolate cake, filled with chocolate mousse and raspberry chiffon. The Saints football team logo adorned the top of the cake. All along the sides were chocolate dipped strawberries.......and chocolate dipped bacon. That's right, bacon!! What guy wouldn't love chocolate and bacon together?!

Fairy Tale Wedding!

For those of you who know me, know that I am a little obsessed with princess and fairy tale stories...so, you can only guess how much fun I had making this 
Cinderella inspired wedding cake! 
This cake design was inspired by Carrie's Cakes Cinderella cake.  The top three tiers were sculpted to have slanted sides and curvy top edges.  The cake was covered in white and various shades of pink fondant. I used royal icing to pipe the bead borders and all of the filigree and scroll work. There are fondant drapes, swags, and flowers on the bottom tier. A beautiful glass slipper was placed on top of the cake, which was such a gorgeous final touch! I do believe this is my favorite cake I've made so far....









Alongside the beautiful bridal cake was an awesome Harry Potter cake! The groom is a big HP fan, so the bride thought it would be fun to surprise him with this cake. The Sorting hat and Snitch were made out of rice krispie treats and covered in modeling chocolate. The glasses, train platform sign, and wand were all made out of fondant. The spell book was made out of chocolate cake with chocolate mousse, covered in fondant and airbrushed. It was finished off with the spell "expelliarmus", which is the disarming charm.

Pinkalicious Birthday!

I know I've said it lots of times before, but I just LOVE first birthday parties!! It's a great celebration for the parents...who just made it through an entire year with a baby. It's also so much fun to see the baby tear into their smash cake!

I was thrilled to make this birthday cake for the daughter of a long time friend of mine. The party was Pinkalicious themed, which is a super cute series of books for little girls. The little girl, named Pinkalicious, loves the color pink and especially loves pink cupcakes. Her parents warn her not to eat too many pink cupcakes, but she does anyway...and, she turns pink! I made a really (really) big cupcake cake for this special celebration. And a smaller version for the birthday girls' smash cake. The top part of the cupcake cake was made out of white almond cake and white chocolate buttercream and the bottom part of the cupcake cake was made out of strawberry cake and white chocolate buttercream. Happy happy birthday, Lyla!

Austin Skyline & Comic Book Cakes


I am a little late posting pictures from this wedding....an entire year late, to be exact! Tomorrow marks one year since this fabulous couple got married. I had so much fun working with this bride and groom. They were all about unique, fun wedding ideas and their wedding turned out absolutely awesome! 
Because a lot of their guests were travelling to Austin from out of town and state, they decided to do an Austin-themed bridal cake. Inspired from a cake design found on The Knot, the cake displays famous Austin landmarks and buildings, such as the Frost Bank skyscraper, the Capitol building, Stevie Ray Vaughn statue, ACL sign, the Congress bat bridge, and an ACL guitar. One of the wedding colors was a peacock blue, so we added that color on the cake with the border on each tier. The black outlines really make the buildings/landmarks pop!





Groom's Cake
This cake was a surprise for the groom from the bride. While the couple was dating, the groom (a comic buff) wrote and drew a comic book for the bride that was the story of how they met...with a comic twist! The bride gave me a copy of this precious story, so I handdrew and painted the pages on to fondant panels. The top of the cake displays the comic characters - the bride, groom, and their sweet dog Roxy. The groom was SO surprised and SO excited :) I LOVE the pictures that the photographer got! (http://wildhousephoto.com/jeanine-scott-austin-wedding-photography-2/)

















The party favors were super cute cookies to look like their schnauzer, Roxy. Roxy couldn't physically be at the wedding...so she was there in cookie-form!





The night before the wedding, at the rehearsal dinner, the couple gave the guests cookie favors. Each cookie was the state of Texas with a heart over where Austin is!



I am so honored to have been chosen by this sweet couple to help make their wedding even more special. I hope you have an awesome first anniversary! I miss you both :)
