Count 'em - FIVE !

Five weddings this weekend - my record! ...and I don't intend on breakin' it any time soon! I don't know how I talked myself into this, my limit is usually 2, maybe 3 but 5?! They're all done, all delivered and all were beauties! repeat designs - all new and different, and lots of color!

Ashley's three tiered butter yellow cake, w/ white scroll work and white gumpaste bow. Fresh flowers topped off this white almond cake with buttercream frosting.
Johanna's cake was a simple design (she was going for "flavor"!) wanting the cake to match her wedding invitations. White almond sour cream cake, and fresh strawberry cake, all iced in cream cheese icing. Love the cake topper! (...I think bride should be on top!) Cicelyanne wanted to incorporate her peacock feathers into her wedding cake, and we came up with this design. We opted w/ a fake base for her feather trim, so the feathers weren't actually on the cake itself. The feather topper was a cake topper she found on line - and
matched perfectly! Denise brought me a photo of a cake she had found, and absolutely loved (original designer unknown). We changed the bows to red, to match her colors. Amaretto cake with buttercream icing. Red roses were added to the top.
Lastly, my favorite (maybe because it's so big!) - Leian's cake was all fresh strawberry cake w/ cream cheese filling, and iced in buttercream. Sage green fondant ribbon wrapped each tier, and decorated w/ white scroll work. Fresh flowers added the finishing touch!

Congratulations to all the happy couples!

Happy Memorial Day everyone!

Go green!

We're hearing a lot of that these days - "go green"! Get echo friendly, environmentally conscious, help our earth by using and wasting less and recycling more - I'm all about it!

I think it's our duty and responsibility to help ensure the wellness of our planet for our future, and our childrens future! Do your part and visit: for 10 easy ways, to go green!
Speaking of going "green", here's my contribution this weekend, with a green cake for Courtney!

Her colors were pink and green - very popular and very spring-like! I love it! I unfortuntaely forgot to take a photo of the grooms cake, that I was dying to dig into! A large two tiered chocolate fudge cake, w/ raspberry filling and chocolate buttercream icing, chocolate ganache drizzles, and fresh raspberries mounded on the top! YUM! Courtney's cake, was a white almond sour cream cake, with cream cheese filling, and vanilla buttercream icing... grab a fork and a tall glass of cold milk! (champagne goes quite nicely too!)

Congratulations to Rosebud and Brent - and their princess castle wedding cake! Rosebud's cake (don't you love that name!) was a 4 tiered white almond sour cream cake, w/ vanilla buttercream. Fondant swags and staircase lead up to her castle cake topper!

...and congrat's to Adrienne and Hans tonight, they were married at Landon Winery here in downtown McKinney (very fun place!) I don't have a photo, but Adrienne wanted a simple cake for her reception. 3 tieres, 2 chocolate fudge, and one French vanilla - all w/ raspberry filling and iced in vanilla buttercream. Decorations were a simple black ribbon and bow around each of her tiers. (Unfortunately Allison didn't charge her camera last night, and no picture!)

Have a great week everybody!!

Jenna's Cake

Unless your living under a rock - you've heard Jenna Bush and her fiance were married this past Saturday, at "the ranch" in Crawford, Texas...    Of course, I was axiously awaiting to see the cake!! Though I've seen a picture of the cake - I can't find who did it...  (details are closely guarded!) Rumor is, it was the pastry chef from The White House.    Pretty cake, simple and elegant for their country wedding, decorated with white roses, and blue and yellow flowers.   Is it me, or is the top of the cake...   crooked?

...or if it's supposed to look this way?!    

What do you think??!

Congrat's to the happy couple!
