by popular demand....

after posting about my part time teaching/cake decorating gig I had a number of comments asking to see some pictures of my cakes. So here's a few for your enjoyment :)

course 1 final cake: let me preface by saying I abhor the buttercream icing rose I am awful at them and would prefer gum paste or fondant roses any day of the week!

course 2 fondant bow cake: this was my second attempt at that silly bow my first one the fondant was so so greasy I couldn't even use I went home after class crying and decided I had to try again.

and a small tiered cake used for an at home reception after a destination wedding. Bride and groom wanted traditional cake cutting pictures.

So there you have it. I hope to have even more cake pictures soon as I'll be kicking decorating into high gear with a wedding in the fall and of course teaching will inspire me to make different cakes.

Thanks for looking

Later Alligators...

LeAnna said...

How cool are you! We definitely should have a class on the basics. :) I have a question about the fondant, do you like the taste of it? I've never tasted one I liked, maybe it's been bad recipes???

Mrs. A said...

I like making marshmallow fondant when I can and it's the best tasting of the fondants but I'm still not a huge fan of fondant for eating however, it is my favorite way of decorating a cake because it's such clean lines and basically leaves you a blank canvas to play with :)

Lauren said...

WOW, they look great! I'm so impressed! My favorite is the brown w/ orange flowers, it looks awesome!

Jocelyn said...

Wow! You are awesome!!! I mostly stick to buttercream when I frost cakes...I too don't care for the taste of fondant. I have heard the marshmallow kind is better though.
