Anniversary Cake--McKayla

McKayla didn't have a chance to get her anniversary cake on her first anniversary, so she opted to get one for her second anniversary.

While this cake top is not "exactly" like their wedding cake, it is actually better, there are roses on the top and it is done in buttercream. The roses and leaves are in buttercream. The cake is iced in buttercream as well.

The original cake had swirl, drop flowers in dark green with black centers and were placed to resemble ivy. The original cake also had red, buttercream roses.

Hayley and Cal--Western Luau

Hayley and Cal wanted a wedding cake to tie into their western luau reception.

With a square base cake and two additional paisley tiers; the flowers include royal icing, navy blue apple blossoms and gold, sugar paste daisies, with white centers. Also there are darling royal icing ladybugs.

The bottom square tier has a brown, fondant ribbon around the bottom. The middle paisley tier has a navy, fondant ribbon around the tier. The top paisley tier has a tan, fondant rope border made into a lasso, and trailing down the cake and coiling on the square tier.

There are also sugar paste leaves included in the "lei" on the top tier.

The cakes are red velvet cake, with cream cheese icing, and are covered in marshmallow fondant.

Hayley is represented by the navy blue, polka dotted flip-flops and Cal by the rustic cowboy boots. Both are edible--the flip-flops from molded white chocolate, the boots from molded sugar paste. There is even a ladybug hiding in one of the boots.

Table decorations include daisies and tulle in matching colors.

They also had a sheet cake, portioned into servings, with an apple blossom on each serving. Some of the servings had a ladybug on them as well. The leaves are buttercream, as is the brown shell border.
