Fondant Wedding Cake in Lavander Colors

I made this wedding cake for my niece. I used fresh flowers in lavender and white. There is a decorative trim work around each layer. The lavender ribbon and pearls adds a nice touch to finishing off each layer. The cake is on a silver tray. It was a very elegant cake.

Fondant Princess Cake

I made this cake for my granddaughters birthday this year. She loves having a special cake made every year and we always try to out do the year before. This is made from a Wilton cake mold. I used fondant for the skirt and bodice of the dress. The head and body is a pic that is also from Wilton. The bottom cake is covered in cream cheese frosting. Hope you enjoy the cakes that I post.

I am posting my card for MOJO95 late this week.. I got it together last night after everyone left. My house is pretty quite......
Anyway, here it is. Check out They have wonderful challenges and lots of fun ideas.

Fondant Wedding Cake- Yellow and Lavender

It is time to post one of the wedding cake that I have made again. This cake is done with fresh flowers and I really like working with them. Most of the cakes that I make, I use artificial flowers. So, it is a nice change once in awhile to use the fresh ones. The cake is made with fondant frosting and has little white royal frosting flowers on it. I used a mirror under the cake which gave the cake a nice accent. Hope you enjoy. I love making them.
