Hand Painted Wedding Cake

We hand painted a vine like design in black on this three tiered wedding cake. This cake is iced with fondant and finished it with handmade wine colored sugar flowers. This wedding cake has what we like to call a “traditional stack” what this means is there is more of a ledge on each tier. Also each layer of cake is about 7inch tall. Sugar flowers was our pick to top this beautiful wedding cake but there are any more option.[:de] We hand painted a vine like design in black on this three tiered wedding cake.

Ghostbusters Slimer Grooms Cake

For all you Ghostbuster fan’s we made Slimer as a grooms cake. The groom was a big fan of the Ghostbusters movie, so the bride had us make him Slimer with his big tongue and all. We sculpted Slimer out of pound cake and iced with fondant. Some of the facial features had to be done before adding the fondant and we also did some airbrushing to highlight some details.  [:de] For all you Ghostbuster fan’s we made Slimer as a grooms cake.

Animal Print Sweet 16 birthday Cake

Here is a cake from a sketch to a beautiful finished product. Tatiana came to the bakery for her Sweet 16 birthday cake. She wanted to follow the theme of her party so she had some ideas on what she wanted us to make, so this is what we came up with. Because we used fondant on this cake, it made it easier to hand paint the animal print on 2 of the tiers and added some fun swirls on the bottom and middle tiers. We also added her name in zebra print and handmade sugar roses in red and gold for a little flair . As a topper we thought the golden sixteen was appropriate to finish this cake.
