This was a 1/2 sheet cake for a tailgate party. White butter cake with buttercream icing and fondant overlay.

This was for the 30th anniversary of a local youth swim team. They are called the Gators and so I was asked to make an alligtor for them. I had a fun time sculpting him and modeling the fondant to look like his scales. I learned several things making this cake, one of them being that I need an airbrush! I had to paint him by hand. This was a big cake and I had to get someone to help me deliver him. He was sitting on a 20x30 board and his tail was hanging over the side a little bit. I hope the kids enjoyed him.

This 4 tier cake was for a 50th wedding anniversary. That is the bride's original wedding portrait in the background. What a beautiful bride and a beautiful photograph. This cake was so heavy that it had to be assembled on site. The fondant kept giving me fits, but I loved how it turned out.
Whimsical roses and polka dots on this three tier butter and chocolate cake. It is covered in fondant and has fondant ribbon roses and leaves. This one took me around 22 hours to complete. I was very happy with the color combination on this. The original design came from Le Gateau ( if I remember correctly).
