|Non-traditional Topsy Turvy Wedding Cake|
Annie chose a Lollipop Topsy Turvy cake to go along with a lollipop theme for the reception. She had four tiers, so she chose lemon cake (with lemon curd filling & lemon cream cheese frosting), white chocolate cake (with raspberry filling & white chocolate frosting), red velvet cake (with cream cheese frosting), and orange cake (with orange cream cheese frosting). She also wanted a sheet cake of a chocolate cake and butter cream frosting.
The wedding cake is covered in fondant with fondant shapes. The 'Lollipops' on top are made from gum paste and one has a monogram P for their last name. She wanted a non-traditional cake that would match her reception theme. I wish I would have gotten a few pics of the tables, because she did a great job of planning and putting it all together!
|Tackle Box Cake|
The groom's cake is a tackle box made with chocolate cake and chocolate frosting, and fondant covering it. This cake was a real challenge. We wanted to make see-through plastic looking panels like Phil's tackle box, but the humidity made the rock candy sticky and unpredictable. We threw that plan out the window early Saturday morning and did a little redesigning! The drawer, bobber, fish string, hooks, fish lures, etc. are made with gum paste. The styrofoam cup and worms in the cup are made of fondant, with a cup cake inside and ground cookies on top. The wooden 'dock' is fondant painted with food coloring and butter extract. .The red worms were made with a recipe for gum drops poured into a mold. The fish string has writing on it using markers that have food coloring in them!
