Jamie and Dan's Baby Shower

This cake was for my daughters baby shower. Her theme was jungle animals. The tree was made out of modeling chocolate and I made all of the animals out of gumpaste. There was a Lion, Zebra, monkey(holding a baby bottle), a cow (with a pacifier in his mouth), 2 giraffes, a little snake and an elephant. The bottom tier was White/strawberry filling, the middle tier was chocolate/ chocolate mousse filling and the top was Lemon/raspberry filling. My daughter loved it! And that is all I needed.

Sugar net

This is a fun new technique I'm doing using sugar. The cake is yellow with raspberry and lemon filling then iced with almond buttercream. It's covered with chocolate fondant then draped with a sugar net. The hearts are made with royal icing. All edible.

Lori and Jay's Big Celebration!

This cake was for multiple celebrations. The couple recently married, they are moving away, Lori is retiring and Lori turned 50. I didn't get photos of all sides, but on the top tier of the cake, I included photos of their two dogs, and on the bottom tier, I included "Adios Orange County" (with a photo of tinkerbell), "Bye Bye California Beach's", "So long California" (with the outline of the Cali. state), a logo from their favorite restaurant and a couple of other things that they will miss here in California.
I wish them the best of luck.
