A Polka Dot Wedding Cake

Last night I made a polka dot wedding cake. The bride's colors were lavender, eggplant, and champagne. She wanted an unusual flavor for the upper 6" tier: Funfetti! Does anyone know what this is? It's like a white cake with rainbow chips melted into it. I had to test recipes to get the flavor just right - but it needed to be from scratch because box cakes (where you typically find funfetti) are far too light and fluffy for a tiered fondant cake. The lower 9" tier is red velvet.

This is the back side of the cake.

A lemon themed rectangular tiered cake

This rectangular tiered lemon themed cake was made in far too little time, as I rushed to play the role of party planner for my late friend Karina's surprise dance party.

Karina loved lemons and limes, and that was the theme of her decor. The cake was lemon, of course, with a citrus cream cheese filling.

The "K" on the top was custom cut from clear acrylic, and then I glued crystals to it. I wish I had taken a better picture of the topper. It was stunning!

"Party Animal" Cakes

These cakes and cupcakes were prepared for a first birthday party for twins - a boy and a girl. They were butter cake with cream cheese frosting, and the cupcakes were red velvet and butter cake. The theme was inspired by dishes I saw in a kitchen store that were way too cute!

Harvey's Seatbelt Bag Cake

This is a Harvey's Seatbelt Bag (purse) cake. The cake took 32 hours to create, and was lemon with citrus cream cheese filling covered in vanilla buttercream and fondant. The recipient loves these bags and also daisies, so I was quite happy to find this tree stump and daisy patch outside my home to photograph this for her. Thanks to the birthday girl for sending me a photo of the cake cut open!

Boston Red Sox Hat Cake for the Groom

This is a Boston Red Sox Hat Cake designed for a wedding at Red Butte Gardens in Salt Lake City, Utah. The bride surprised her groom with this cake, and also had white baseball hats with the Red Sox "B" made for all of the wait staff. The cake is chocolate with chocolate fudge buttercream frosting and molded fondant, and took 24 hours to complete.

Yes, this can also be done as a New York Yankees cake (or any team for that matter). Cakes cannot be shipped, but I can be shipped to bake this for you, and would be happy to discuss arrangements if you're looking for a specialty cake.
