Blue & Orange Engagement Cake

I made this one for a friend's friends who chose blue and orange for their wedding colours.  Top layer was coconut cake with cream cheese frosting and the bottom layer was chocolate cake with alternating layers of raspberry filling and chocolate ganache, with raspberry buttercream, all covered in marshmallow fondant.

Monique and Jeff's Cake Pop Wedding Cake

This was a VERY exciting cake for me!  I had promised my friend Monique over a year ago that I'd make her cake, LONG before I really got into this.  So, really, she's the reason why I got into cakes.  I made her and her fiance cake pops one day, and he loved them, so the idea of having a cake pop wedding cake was thought up.  
 Ta-da!!  What a crazy cake!  But I think it turned out pretty awesome!  The bottom 3 tiers were styrofoam dummies covered in fondant.  I drilled holes in the middle 2 for the cake pops (the husband's drill got totally caked up with fondant, oops!)
I dreamed this up a few days before so people would know which kind was which!

 The cake on top was real, for the cake cutting.
 Monique and I :)
 Beautiful Monique and her handsome hubby.

 The special bride and groom cake pops!

Nautical themed cake

I made this cake for a friend of a friend who is moving to the eastern side of Canada...thought it would be fitting!  Bottom layer is gluten-free chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting and the top layer is red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting.  As always, all decorations are edible!

Angry Birds Cake

This cake was SO fun!  And tasty - chocolate cake with Oreo buttercream.  LOVE LOVE LOVE that combo!!
