Black and White wedding

For Calvin and Jenifer. This cake was large, a 14 inch base, 10 inch middle and 6 inch top, all chocolate cake with Bavarian cream filling.
At the location their florist added the most beautiful deep red flowers to the top and cascading down the side. Also, the bride and groom placed animal figurines on the bottom tier ledge to represent their pet names for each other. A Cow for her and a Hippo for him. Sweet terms of endearment to each other. This couple was so nice, and they obviously have a good sense of humor.

This cake is another that I have done in the past. What changed is that I did not do the characters in the usual star piping that is always seen on kids cakes. I think I like this look better. It allows me to get the color into the smaller detailed areas. It takes time to smooth it out, but overall I think that its worth it for the look.

Wedding Shower Butterflies

I was asked to make this cake with the wedding color theme in it. The colors were teal, cranberry, and avocado. I was not sure about the combination and how it would look, or how I would get the icing the right colors. So there was a little experimenting done with color.
I wasn't asked to do hand painted butterflies, but I had some time and a friend coming to visit so we spent a couple hours catching up and painting butterflies. Hers looked so much better than mine. One of them even broke but I managed to hide the break in the placement.
After it was all put together, I was please with the result.
