Melissa & Scott's Fairy Tale Castle

Melissa and Scott had previously eloped much to the dismay of family and friends, so they agreed to have a small renewal type cermony with a BIG reception!!!! Melissa's dream of a fairy tale wedding began with lovely shades of pink adorning a castle wedding cake fit for a princess bride and her handsome knight in shing armor groom.

The cake had a 16" 2-layer base of luscious chocolate fudge cake, filled with silky smooth Bavarian Creme. The castle entrance is on the 2-layer, 12" hexagonal scrumptuous spice cake with cream cheese filling. At each cormer of the hexagon is a romantic tower, trellised with delicate and lovely flowers in shades of pink and white. Flowers also border each layer and grace the windows and the spired entrance arch.

The pinnacle towers sit atop a 2-layer, 6", gluten free cake (especially for the groom) and filled with raspberry filling.

Additionally, Melissa requested 250 cupcakes in the flavors of chocolate fudge, spice, white and yellow for her kingdom's guests to enjoy. All were topped with fluffy swirls of the same white buttercream icing as the castle cake and tiny pink and white flowers (seen at bottom left of last photo.)

All in all the kingdom greatly enjoyed this spectacular cake and Melissa and Scott were delighted with this bit of "Happily Ever After!"

Megan & Chris--Strawberries in Blue

Three tiers of white cake with different fillings in the tiers (strawberry in the top and bottom, chocolate Bavarian Cream in the middle), covered in buttercream and white chocolate marshmallow fondant.

Megan and Chris chose Navy blue, light blue, white and silver to adorn their cake as well as tasty in-season strawberries and quaint strawberry plant blossoms and leaves made from sugar paste.

The top has a towering tree of strawberries, graced with strawberry leaves and strawberry blossoms made from sugar paste.

The middle tier was separated from the top with 9" crystal-look pillars and had an arrangement of strawberries, sugar paste leaves and blossoms, and a cute little motorcycle (which the bride really wants) tucked in amongst them.

On the fondant, we put a fondant ribbon border, and painted on designs with luster dusts in Moonstone silver, Sapphire Blue, and Silver.

The bride, groom, parents, and other family members were thrilled with the cake both in appearance and taste.
