Recent Cakes

Gosh, it's been a long time since I've posted, been pre-occupied with so many other things lately, sorry! Here are some pics of fave recent cakes from the past couple of months.

This cake was so lovely in person and looked fantastic against the rustic stone walls of the Bella Vita Ranch in Stephenville, TX. The bride loved the way the ruffle detail mimicked her dress.

Proving that simple is sometimes better, with stunning with fresh blossoms clustered around and pearlized fondant bands at the base of each tier. This cake was delivered to a magnificent private estate in Dallas.

This abstract design was perfectly at home in The Modern Art Museum.

For the groom with everything, this cake was a copy of Cody's custom cowboy boots.

One of the heaviest cakes I've ever made and one of the loveliest too. Elegant ivory on ivory with just a touch of subtle bling in the brooches.

For the groom who fancies hippos.

 Kate's wedding at Colonial Country Club was classic in every way, right down to the buttercream-iced cake with pearls and scroll piping.

Brittany's cake is one of my all-time faves, I nicknamed the design "Coco" because it reminds me of Coco Chanel.

Brittany's groom, Andy, is a boat man.

Ahhhh, The City Club ballroom, the room that seems to have been made just to show off cakes. This photo doesn't do justice to the space which has mirrors absolutely everywhere, and spectacular lighting too. I love the whimsical nature of this cake.

A retirement cake for an XTO Energy employee. Joy was the second person ever hired at XTO, more than 26 years ago. The cake is a replica of one of the XTO-owned buildings that she renovated to award-winning status.
