Taking the plunge

This cake was really fun to make - for a really fun couple!

Glenna & Andy knew EXACTLY what they wanted for their wedding cake! They wanted a ski hill - and that's what they got - complete with a mogul run!!!

This 4-tier spice cake with hot buttered rum buttercream was finished in fondant and royal icing "snow". The tiers were offset so that it would be more like a ski hill and it was adorned with entirely edible trees and a sign.

Dan of Life in a Flash Photography provided me with some great pictures of the cake - thanks Dan!

Congratulations Glenna & Andy!

First comes love, then comes marriage .....

Wow - it's been a while since I posted! Sorry about that...finishing up the busy season, jumping right into the holiday season - it's hard to keep up!

I made Chris & Shelley's wedding cake back in the fall of 2004 - that was my first paid wedding cake and what launched me into my full-time business.

Chris & Shelley now have a son - so they wanted a special cake to help celebrate their special event.
We decided to go with something a bit different - we made a 3D edible recreation of the outfit Cohen would be wearing that day - right down to the tag! The booties are also edible and we finished it off with matching cookie favours for the guests.
