There comes along a bride every now and then who has very different tastes than the traditional bride. Jesslynn Hughes is a big fan of Animae, and her and her new husbamd wanted a unique design that depicts who they are. Along side this cake you see a statue of a mystic woman in black and a white dragon. This represents them and who they are. They designed the style and added the dragon logo on each tier to make it completely their wedding cake. They insisted the flowers made all sugar, there were tiger lilies, blue blossoms, white daisies and white orchids. All made by your truly. You should have seen the jaws that dropped when this cake came strolling in at Jesslyns, 's mother residence, where the reception was Washington Fields.
This Cake looked amazing at the Bell Tower. This cake was made for Emily Wariner & Kia Thomas Anderson. They are such a wonderful couple, they really deserve to have a beautiful wedding and wedding cake. This is the second cake I've done for the Wariners. These red callalilies looked fantastic on this white fondant cake with ivory colored drape..very classy!
The fun and inventive way of doing a wedding cake is catching on again..this is Kourtney Aldous & Jake Millard's cupcake wedding cake. It was a delightful display at their reception at the Villa Gardens. Their reception was beautiful and the cake/cupcakes certainly fit in. They had 3 cake flavors..ie French Vanilla, Chocolate Fudge and Purple Velvet..Mmmmm, it all was so yummy.
This gem was an amazing cake for me. I absolutely loved doing the painted on blossoms. I knew it would be a challenge for me because of the height of the cake tiers, and yes it is all cake but the little short tier was foam. Jessica wanted all real and she got it. Her reaction was just what I expected..over joyed..and she said it made all the stress go away, that she was having. What a wonderful thing to say.

This little jewel was a real challenge. The bride wanted a Damask look, but she wanted a unique look instead of the stencil look that everyone else is using. So I hand painted a stylized design on all 4 sides. The design matched her look that she used throughout her reception. Everyone including the bride was amazed by this beautiful cake. And I was very proud of my finished work. Definitely an art piece.
