My version of a fondant dahlia, in various colours. Very summery, fun, bright cake!
My friend Joan is retiring and I was asked to bring a cake for a wee celebration at the office tomorrow. Her favourite flavour is mocha and she loves flowers so mocha roses seemed just the thing. Twenty years at one place is pretty remarkable in this day and age. I hope Joan has a wonderful time in retirement.
A few requests for this cake: Wedding vows; the couple’s favourite colour blue; gold to signify 50 years of wedded bliss; vanilla. Done!
I made this cake for a little guy who loves to go fishing with his dad. I love painting with buttercream.
Another fish cake. Susan is a fisherperson too. Love the candy eye!
The fondant clown figure took forever but I was so pleased because it looked just like the clown called Atchoum! And she was at the party so doubly important that I got it right. Polka dots and Smarties on the board were a request from the birthday girl.
A friend of mine had a barn put up at her place. A fabulous barn at that! And for a celebration of its completion, she wanted a cake to feed about 60 partygoers.
Here’s the cake I made her for the barn-raising bash. Fondant and buttercream barn that looked (almost) like the real thing.
