Wedding Cake


Last Sunday I was able to create a cake for a great couple who introduced me to a new flavor combination that I will now be featuring in my cakes for upcoming clients, Meyer Lemon Cake with Lavender Buttercream. 

The cake design took one of the colors of the bride's wedding, a lovely shade of purple, and signature orchids to cascade down the front of the cake. 

I really enjoyed the chance to work on the flavors with this couple!

Warm Regards,

Christening Cake


Over the weekend I was able to create a Christening cake for the daughter of one of my mother's customers. My charge was to incorporate pink flowers, this is what I can came up with. 

The cake is a Yellow Butter Cake with Strawberry Buttercream. 

Dressing a Cake....


This weekend I created a wedding cake and groom's cake for a lovely couple, Angelique and Matthew. They were married at the Cummer Museum, one of the truly great venues in Jacksonville. 

The bride wanted the cake to recreate her wedding dress with the addition of flowers atop the cake, edged in gold luster dust. The flavor of the cake was: Yellow Butter cake with champagne and strawberry buttercream. 

The groom's cake was inspired by the groom's trumpet play. And of course, the greatest trumpet player of all time was Satcho, aka Louis  Armstrong. I searched for a design that I thought matched the style of the event, which I found in this amazing sketch, which I replicated.
