I was very lucky to be able to do a wedding cake for Lyn-Z and Travis Pastrana. Their wedding cake is a red velvet cake filled with a whipped cream cheese filling. It's covered in buttercream flavored fondant. The fondant is hand made to resemble a specific plaid pattern. There are red and white edible sugar roses topping the cake. The bride and groom provided their own cake topper. Congratulations to Lyn-Z and Travis! May they have a very happy and blessed life together!

What beach party is complete without a sand castle?? And this sandcastle was only for the special boy turning 6. It was a lemon cake with vanilla buttercream, covered in fondant. The octopus and starfish are fondant and completely edible. The seashells are a mix of white and milk chocolate and very yummy.
These cupcakes were for the party guests. They are double vanilla cupcakes with vanilla buttercream. The surfboards are sugar and completely edible.
I know that this birthday boy had a wonderful day because it was for my son....which is also why a 6 year old is requesting his "own" cake. I don't think that is a normal request. Although when you grow up and your mom is a baker- maybe your point of view is a little different- lol!

This is a three tiered square wedding cake. It is a lemon cake with a cream cheese filling and fresh cut strawberries. It's covered in a white buttercream flavored fondant and decorated with black fondant. The bride picked out the designs for each tier. The ribbons at the base of each tier matched the wedding party.
The bride and groom are made out of fondant and are completely edible. The groom is in his firefighter outfit and the bride is in her wedding dress.
I wish this couple many, many, many years of happiness and love!

This cake is a 3 tier chocolate cake with a raspberry buttercream filling covered in fondant. The fondant was airbrushed with food coloring and was also hand painted.
My customer provided the figurines. On the top tier is the legendary Darth Vader and the fearless Luke Skywalker. Sitting on the second tier is the ever helpful C-3PO. On the bottom tier is the cunning and fearless Obi-Wan Kenobi and the faithful R2-D2.
Happy Birthday to one of the biggest Star Wars fans out there. May the force be with you!
