Here piggy, piggy!

OK, this was definately a first! ...maybe a last?! Thought the cake came out cute (?) but not sure about the concept - cutting into this "wild boar" cake, (red velvet by the way) seems a little gross for a wedding... but that's just me! This grooms cake was selected by the bride, for her man -a hunter of wild game! I'm sure he'll love it! This cake was carved from sheet cakes, covered in fondant and color was airbrushed. Tusks and ears were formed out of gumpaste.

This 5 tiered cake, was for a special 50th anniversary. Combination of white almond sour cream cake, and chocolate fudge cake, iced in vanilla buttercream. We were going for a "latte" colored icing w/ ivory scroll work, and little gold fondant pearls. Chocolate brown fondant ribbon, was used as a border for each cake. We added a large floral cake topper, but my battery had died (of course!) Congratulations Jim and Peggy!

LOVE the color of the anniversary cake! The piggy cake reminds me of the armadillo cake with the red velvet inside on that movie with Julia Roberts long ago..?

Oh my. Great boar cake...I wouldn't know where to begin. You did a fantastic job. I'm sure they all got a kick out of it.

You've been very busy!
