I had full creative control on this one and sometimes that makes me nervous. The client said the theme of the party was garden looking flowers in distressed stone pots. I wanted to somewhat keep with the theme but still do my own thing so this is what I came up with. This fondant is actually chocolate flavored so it's a little bit better than regular fondant. I thought this cake was darling!
I had a request for a cake that "doesn't have the stiff frosting." So this is what I came up with. It was four layers of chocolate cake with 3 layers of raspberry filling covered with homemade chocolate buttercream. I finished it with chocolate shavings and fresh raspberries. It was seriously one of the yummiest cakes ever. One woman at the party said it was "pretty much the best ever." It always makes you feel good to get those kind of compliments. I LOVE my job!

A sweet sixteen surprise birthday party is always a great occasion for a fancy cake. The 16 actually matched the decorations for the party which was very cool. There was a little bit of a sad story about this cake though. We had our first cake-tastrophe. When I was delivering it the top fell over when I did a u-turn ( that will teach me to pay closer attention) It broke the bow and made a gouge on the bottom tier on the back. It was sad and I actually cried. We put it back together at the party and it was still pretty presentable but I was very sad about the whole thing. I guess we all have to live and learn right???

Another favorite of mine! This color combination is just too cute. I love every cake done with it. And this cake stand... is awesome! It is difficult to carry though when it has heavy cake on it and it is not the most stable stand in the world. But hey, the things we do for fashion right?
