The Second Wedding Cake I Ever Made

So I know this couple… and they’re super adorable… and they got married. And I had the privilege of making their wedding cake!
Their venue was an old theatre, and could it have been any cuter???

Okay, seriously, could anything possibly be cuter than that? I think not!!!!
Somewhat hilariously, they didn’t know what part of the cake they were supposed to cut. Eventually, they figured out it was the bottom tier haha.

I would say with complete honesty, it was the coolest wedding I’ve ever been to…even the food was good! And seeing people so in love is just awesome!

Wishing you happily ever after Mark and Crista!

Humming Bird Cake

My friend Karen texted me and asked if I could do a cake for her sister in law. We debated between making a cake with her brother’s face on it or a humming bird theme cake lol. Two totally different ideas haha. In the end we went with the humming bird. The cake was chocolate with raspberry filling. I covered the cakes with the colors from their wedding. A nice sage and purple. I cut out my flowers and let them sit overnight in an egg crate to dry and hold their upright shape!
I also sprayed the flowers lightly with a bit of sparkle from my airbrush.
I made the humming bird from fondant, covering a toothpick with black fondant for the beak. The wings I literally assembled one hand cut feather at a time. All the decoration was made of fondant except for the pearls which were buttercream.

I’ll have to say, it’s one of my favorite cakes I’ve made!

Just plain cute and classy. I’m so glad the humming bird cake out well! I was a little bit concerned because I’ve never been great at making life like things from fondant haha.
