Stephanie Rose Ombre

This is a shabby inspired cake made for a 30th birthday party. The top tier was a vanilla cake with fresh raspberry filling.  The bottom layer was fudge cake and salted caramel filling (yes again). The frosting is vanilla bean buttercream piped in rustic pink ombre stripes on the bottom tier.  Creamy rosettes were piped on the top tier with roses placed in a delicate bouquet.

 I made the roses with pink fondant and gumpaste which gave them a more realistic look and dries to a porcelain finish.  I dusted the centers with a tangerine petal dust and sprayed them with pearl spray . To finish I dropped tiny droplets of clear piping gel on the petals to make them look dewy.

This by far is one of my favorites especially since
I have such a passion for all things vintage.

Lil Man Trip


Lil Man Cake is a 1st birthday cake made for this lil man. I made him his own cake chocolate and stabilized whipped cream frosting.  The birthday cake is bottom tier-chocolate fudge salted caramel filling with vanilla buttercream.  The top tier is white velvet cake filled with blackberry cheesecake.  The decor is all hand made from fondant, gumpaste. The design was created by Mom Stacie, turned out pretty cute.
