Groom's Cake

Originally, this was supposed to have been the groom's cake to accompany the Dalsing-Cieslak wedding cake. However, since the couple was leaving the next day, we decided it would be better for them to come home to, so they could enjoy it.

An "Ice Cream" cake, the cake itself was chocolate fudge. Inside was creamy strawberry ice cream. Iced in whipped chocolate ganache, with a chocolate buttercream border, the most dazzling feature are the decked out strawberries.

Strawberries are dipped in white and brown chocolate to resemble little tuxedos. Their adorable buttons and bow ties are hand painted. They are ready for any formal affair.

This cake would provide 8-12 servings depending on portion size. Strawberries can be served with cake or eaten alone...

Tony B's Gibson SG Special in Emerald Green aka Electric Guitar

This cake was for a young man turning 20 who plays guitar in a band. He works with James at the Tire Shop.

Cake was a triple chocolate fudge cake with chocolate buttercream and chocolate mousse fillings. Iced and decorated in buttercream with a fondant piece painted with luster dust to give it a shiny appearance.

Baked in the shape of a guitar, this cake would likely provide 12-15 servings (or in the case of the boys at the shop, 6-8--it all depends on the size).
