Faux and Fabulous Wedding Cake

When this couple came to me, they had a grand plan to have a surprise wedding annoucement at their engagement party, followed by the rolling out of a huge wedding cake. Well, the guilt of hiding the secret got to them and they decided to have a small reception at a friends not so small house. They were only expecting 40 - 50 guests, but wanted large wedding cake as the centerpiece of the event. This is the perfect occasion for faux tiers!

Below is a picture of the 6 tiered cake, can you guess which 3 are real, and which three are faux?

Some other detail shots of the sugar flowers and monogram.

Eeyore and Piglet Baby Shower

Its the season for baby showers, and with the sea of baby room design choices its no wonder that we never see two of the same cakes! This cake and cupcake combination was for an old friend (yeah Facebook!) having her first grand baby. The little Eeyore and Piglet topper were made of sugar so that the mom could keep them if she wanted. The cupcakes were made of chocolate buttercream with a little fondant top to the "hunny" pot, and some vanilla custard as honey drops. I had so much fun with this project, I hope someone else orders Eeyore, Piglette and Hunny pots!!
