Packed and ready

Luggage cakeA good friend was moving away and I was asked to make a cake for his going away party. This cake fed about 40-50 people. The gold bits are gum paste and the suitcase was marble cake, covered with chocolate fondant.
We’ll miss Lionel and wish him well in Red Deer, Alberta. Knock ’em dead out there!

Long distance love

Luggage wedding cakeI made this cake for friends whose son was marrying a gal from the other side of the globe. Booker and Tijana had been having a long distance relationship for years and were celebrating their marriage with a casual, outdoor wedding. I thought a suitcase with labels of places they had been together would be perfect. The travel labels were printed with edible ink on rice paper, so everything on this cake was edible. It fed about 80 or so party goers.
