Fondant covered white cake

*** This cake was actually for my daughter's 3rd birthday. She saw her Mommy making wedding cakes all the time and so when I asked her what she wanted for her birthday (thinking she'd tell me some kind of toy), she said she wanted a wedding cake (a girl after my own heart!). This is as close to a wedding cake that I was willing to go, since she was only 3. She loved it, and that's what counts.  ***

roses


These roses were used on the Cheery cake. Roses are awesome because you can make them look anything from semi-realistic to more stylized. I confess that I cannot make roses look as real as Scott Clark Woolley can. Man, he's good.

Alicia Thank you

Though this bride and groom knew what they wanted for invitations, they did not know what they wanted for thank you cards. Using their selected wedding pictures, this is what I came up with:







PS: THESE PICTURES WERE TAKEN BY AMBER AT **http://www.amberthompsonphotography.com/**. Check her out, she's awesome. I highly recommend her if you're in Utah. (all pictures used by permission).

Alicia pics from the Pro!

Please be courteous to the photographer and do not copy or save these images.

I got the pictures back from the photographer, and they're great. I LOVED working with Amber Thompson. She was just as fun and spunky as the bride. She was able to catch exactly what was needed. She wasn't right in th action, but still able to catch it. Personally, as a professional, I STRONGLY dislike it when photographers try to be everyone's friend. You're there as a pro, not as a guest. You have a job and a responsibility to the bride. But AMBER knew EXACTLY what her role was. And her pics were great. She was also very eager to help and work with other professionals, which is OBVIOUSLY a big deal for me. I HIGHLY recommended her for anyone in the area.

12" circle
serves aprox. 25 (party servings)
buttercream with fondant on top
strawberry cake (pink for a girl!)
gumpaste decorations
chocolate writing

Ok, this is obviously not a wedding cake, but I had to share it! it's just too cute to pass up! It was made for a baby shower, but I think it is just as appropriate as a little girl's birthday cake. gumpaste is amazing!
The inspiration for this cake comes from Sugar Creations.
I confess, I am dang proud of these gumpaste decorations! The sugar is grainy inside the sugarbowl (cant tell in the pic), there's a cracked egg, the cupcake pan has actual depth, quilt has quilt marks! It was a BLAST to make this cake!


Sorry the pictures aren't so clear, I'm not good with the camera (I swear it hates me!)
