Caroline's Cake

Matt's niece gave me exactly 3 days notice on this one. Then she texted me and said "my friend is allergic to red. pls don't put any red on the cake." ooops. So I took the peices I'd cut out to make the star shape and made an extraneous football shaped cake, without any red on it. Can I get some validation on this one? Is it possible for anyone to be allergic to red? I hate the way I look in red, does that count?

Ashley & Jeremy's Cake

Upside-down? Yes, this cake is upside-down. As it turns out, it's really not that much different from making a regular cake, but it did take some finagling. They picked marble swirl with sour cream fudge filling on the 8", white chocolate cake with raspberry buttercream filling for the 10", and lemon cake with lemon curd & blackberries for the 12". I'm so glad Ashley kept her promise to let me do her cake, even though we both left the gym that we met at.

Jailhouse Cake

Our cute friend has recently made some big changes in his life, so Matt & I made a cake to celebrate. He LOVED it! Said it was the best cake he'd ever had. He really likes poppy-seeds, and now that he doesn't have to pass random drug tests, we celebrated with an almond cake with poppy-seed filling and vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream. If you can't tell, this is one of the corner squares from the Monopoly board. I forgot to write "In Jail" on top, but I suppose the "Just Visiting" part was the most important part though.

Holly's Cake

One of the more gorgeous brides ever, Holly McOmie chose a very elegant cake and delicious flavors. I was so honored to be a part of their day and am happy to add chocolate marshmallow fondant to my repertoire. The six inch tier is chocolate-chocolate cake with mint ganache filling; the 9 inch tier is white butter cake filled with vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream; and the 12 inch tier is almond butter cake with whipped cream, vanilla bean pastry cream and strawberry filling.

Ashley P.'s Cake

Ashley stumbled upon my blog somehow & I am so glad she did. Not only did she have some fantastic suggestions- the sanding sugar crusted buttercream is such a cool look, but she and her family were so kind and wonderful to work with. This cake is a ten inch almond poppy seed cake with whipped cream, pastry cream and raspberry fillings; an eight inch chocolate-chocolate chip cake with mint ganache filling; and a six inch brown sugar spice cake filled with caramel buttercream and peaches.
