My kind of wedding cake! different, simple, without flowers.
And with hippos on top!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Have you seen hippos on a wedding cake before?????
I love originality in all its shapes and forms.
The bride sent me a photo of the couple's favorite mascot, a cute hippo, and I created two hippos for their wedding cake. A him and a her. And I gave them green eyes, of course:)
I looooove them!!!!!!!!!!!
The whole wedding was decorated in various shades of green, so we went with that on the cake as well.
The bride had green shoes!!!!! Loving her even more:)))
Everything had something green, so the cake could not be different.
This cake is a groom's cake. The bride wanted to surprise her groom on the day of their wedding with his very own groom's cake.
Because the groom is a contractor, we chose to go with a bulldozer, and to tie it with the wedding I added a bride and a groom on the cake.
I had to use blue, white and black, as these were the groom's company colors.
This cake went ~300 km by car, so I am really, really hoping it got there all right. It was so heavy, I could barely lift it and hold it in my arms. And none of the photos do the cake any justice. It looked sooo much better in reality.
Ok, so this is my second attempt at this hand piped lace.
You can see a slight improvement in my piping, but that's it. still not there.
This time I used butter cream for the piping, and as you can see I still couldn't get it to be black, although I used almost an entire black gel color from Wilton on just two spoons of butter cream. I really need to buy the black piping gel. I can't seem to be able to get it black on my own.
I made this cake for a young lady, getting married.
This is the cake she got at her bachelor-ette party. It was my first time hand modeling a tiara, and it gave me plenty of stress and trouble. I did not have the necessary time to make it ahead.The middle part was a different design. much taller but it broke when placed on the cake so I had to quickly do something else, much smaller so that it would stay in place. I then added some feathers to give it some height, as the laterals of my tiara were taller than the middle part, but in the end it stayed on the cake, giving me no more problems.
this is the pillow cake, before the tiara was put on top.
A close up of the buttons I made to use on my pillow cake. I used a First impressions mold to make them. Looooove them:))
and the finished cake with the hand made tiara. I hope the bride to be liked her cake.
I was shown a picture of this cake and asked to do it, because the design of this cake had a lot of meaning to the newly weds. I like how it came out. It is going more than 400 km by car so I am hoping for the best here:)
detail of the groom.
I was asked to give him a bow tie, so I thought why not a suit, then?
Really trying to impress my friend, here:))))
Hope you are pleased Anca!

I hope it does not offend anyone. sometimes things do not turn out the way you expect them to.
