New postmistress

postmistress-2010Felice was the local postmistress in our small town post office of Dunvegan. She got promoted to a larger post office — a stand alone post office! — in Moose Creek, so we threw a little “congratulations” party for her.
I thought a cake shaped like an envelope would be perfect along with edible fondant stamps. Fun.

Architectural technologist

architecture cakeMy friend’s son Jacob graduated as an architectural technologist and Jen, his mum wanted to celebrate. She tracked down some of her grandfather’s blueprints — he was an architect — and suggested I incorporate them into a cake. Great idea! They were made into edible icing sheets (printed with edible ink) and added to the cake. I made the pencils and ruler out of fondant. Congrats Jacob. Knock ’em dead out there!
