Pooh bear Birthday Cake

This 2 tier Pooh bear theme cake was made for a two year old birthday boy. The entire cake theme was designed to match the Pooh bear story environment. It consisted of the Pooh bear log-house under a tree, some fields of flowers with fence and Pooh bear friends Eeyore and Tigger near by the fence. Since Pooh bear is always associated with honey, I included lots of honeybees flying here and there.

The topper of the cake consisted of a sugar-made number 2 and a Pooh bear candle next to it.

The kids in the party had fun eating the sugar flowers, chocolate fence, sugar honeybees, icing house and the trees.

Wedding Anniversary Cake

This cake was designed for our (me & hubby) 5th wedding anniversary. The inspiration for this cake was the snow in our backyard. Over the last weeks we have had several inches of snow in our area. The snow covered backyard looks amazing to view from inside the house. I have always wanted to create a snowman with all that snow, but have not yet dared to go out in the freezing temperatures to fulfill that wish :-) So I decided why not make a snowman couple for the theme.

The cake is simply frosted with spatula strokes to represent the snow covered ground. Couple of snowflakes are added behind the couple for dimensional effect.
Here is a closeup view of the snowman bride & groom topper. Everything is edible and hand molded with sugar fondant.

Pink Wedding Shower Cake

This sweet and simple cake is designed for a wedding shower. Soft pastel pink is the bridal color used for the cake. To highlight the softness of the entire cake a pink rose spray is added for decoration. Here is the close view of the rose spray. These flowers are made from gumpaste. Gumpaste is a pliable sugar dough consisting of a combination of plant gums. The loopy ribbon bows adds elegance to the floral spray. This can be a valuable keep-sake for the bride.

Golfer Cake

This cake was designed for a person who is interested in golfing. My idea was to create the golf course scene with couple of trees, some land and water patches and ofcourse a Golfer who successfully hit the ball to the flag.
