Cosmetology Graduation

This cake was made for a graduate of a cosmetology school.  The face was sketched with black food color gel and the "makeup" was dusted on with food color powder. The flavor was white almond cake with chocolate buttercream.  
This cake was a little different than the cutesy or traditional cakes I usually do.  I really love the modern feel that it has! 
 Congrats Hannah!

Happy Anniversary Rachel and Paul!!

A year ago today, I had the privilege of making the wedding and groom's cake for Rachel and Paul. I was really excited when they asked me to make a special cake for their 1 year anniversary! The flavor of this cake matched their wedding cake, which was white almond cake with a layer of lemon curd and 2 layers of lemon buttercream.

             The side of this cake has swiss dots and a pearl border. The top of the cake read a special message for the couple, "A cord of three strands...".  
Happy Anniversary!!

Here are a few shots of the wedding and groom's cakes. 

The side of the cake read, 
"There is no fear in love.  But perfect love drives out fear" (1 John 4:18).

And for the groom...who is a huge fan of The Simpsons...a large 2d head of Homer!
