Clay & Taylor’s Wedding Cake

March 2014

One of the student workers from my previous office was married last weekend, and I had the honor of making the cake!  The wedding was at the ocean at Honolulu’s Magic Island at Ala Moana Beach Park.  It had been raining most of the morning, but cleared up just in time for the ceremony.

Top Layer: Lemon Cake with Blueberry-Vanilla Filling

Bottom Layer: Red Velvet Cake with Vanilla-Bean Buttercream Filling

White Satinice fondant with white royal icing piping pearls and hearts.  Black monogram topper with dark pink roses.

Starry Night Wedding Cake

Beth & Ben’s Starry Night Wedding Cake

January 2011

The wedding theme was fashioned after Van Gogh’s Starry Night painting, which I rendered in buttercream impasto on stacked square cake layers.  Cake itself was funfetti, in the colors of the painting.

Frog Prince Groom's Cake

Beth & Ben’s Groom’s Cake

January 2011

Beth and her mom wanted a frog-prince groom’s cake so she could have a great photo opportunity kissing her Frog Prince.  And of course it was red velvet – Steel Magnolias-style.  My first sculpted cake.  Green fondant, gold lustre-dusted gumpaste crown.

White Chocolate Wedding Cake

Paul & Lori Wedding Cake

December 2008

The bride requested an all-buttercream cake – which I don’t typically do in the tropics.  Since it was a small December wedding, I agreed to it.  Topped it with white chocolate shavings and orange gerbera daisies.  Offset square layers.

Navy Ribbon Wedding Cake

Mike and Tina Wedding Reception

September 2010

Was given full creative license with this cake, with the only instructions that the couple liked blue and nautical decor.  Went understated, like the couple, with navy ribbons that echoed the waves of the sea.

 

Cookies and Candy Cake

Beth and Cameron Wedding Cake

April 2011

The bride wanted a cake that looked AND tasted like her favorite cookies and candy: Hershey’s Kisses (chocolate cake filled with chocolate ganache), Reese’s PB cups (chocolate cake, peanut-butter buttercream filling), and Oreos (cookies-and-cream cake, vanilla buttercream filling).

Edible silver spray on top fondant, sculpted to look like a Hershey’s Kiss.  chocolate fondant on sculpted peanut-butter-cup cake, and chocolate and vanilla fondant on Oreo-shaped cake.

Modern Wedding Reception Cake

Surprise Wedding Reception

July 2011

I made Roxi & Zack’s wedding cake a couple months prior in southern California, but none of our other Florida friends could make it to the wedding.  We hosted a surprise reception for them in Florida, and I made this cake, reminiscent of their original cake.

Wedding Cake and Cupcakes

Kristi & Max Wedding

July 2009

Kristi, an elementary art teacher, asked me to make her wedding cake – her request was to have cupcakes as well as a cake they could cut into.  I created this two-tier cake, cupcakes, and custom stand for them.  Cupcakes (and cake topper) have a KM monogram on a fondant disc along with sugar pearls coated in lustre dusts.  Cake tiers have a variety of decorations, including wired fondant balls, royal icing dots, and fondant circles and rings.
