Wedding Desserts: Display of CupCakes, Cheesecake and Specialty Cake

Something different is on the menu for our post today.

We recently designed and executed this display of cupcakes, chocolate cheesecake and coconut mounds cake for a small wedding reception celebration in Wareham, Massachusetts.

The cupcakes and cakes are decorated with edible organic real flower blossoms from a local farm. These nasturshiams decorate the cupcakes and the rosettes of icing and ganache on the large cheesecake and cake.

100th Birthday & 101st Birthday Cake @ Sippican Nursing Home

Last year we were asked to create a special birthday cake for Martha who was turning 100! Here is her handpainted seashore cake complete with adirondack chair and skiff. A few lingering clouds spell our "100"....

Martha's 101st birthday cake was a little more fun....a Scrabble board!

Happy 101st Martha!

It's a Zoo in the Bakery!

No really....the zoo is in the bakery!

We created this 3D sculpted panda cake for a little girls' first birthday at the Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence, Rhode Island.

Two pandas, a mom and baby, sit together atop a pretty pale pint present with a giant fushia pink bow. A whimsical fushia pink "1" sits in front of the baby panda cake with a candle!

Stalks of bamboo surround the pandas- what a great color contrast- the greens against the pink, black and white.

The cake flavor included vanilla cake with pink-berry filling.

Whimsical Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter Tea Party Cake

Rose calls each year with a challenge to create a special cake for her daughter! Can I tell you how much I love a challenge!

Flat Sculpted: Quarter Century Cake

Celebrating "25" is a little more special with this quarter century Flat Sculpted Cake. What is "flat sculpted"? Well, it means that we cut our sheet cakes in the shape of numbers or any other fun shape and then frost it in buttercream then cover it in rolled fondant. Flat sculpted cakes are a more cost effective way to get the illusion of a sculpted cake and also there is no need to worry about traveling with a tiered cake.

Flat sculpted cakes can serve as few guests as 16!

You can see a few other flat sculpted cakes HERE and HERE and HERE

Wedding Cake: Ruched Pleats of Fondant with Victorian Lavender Tulips and Pink Roses

The pleats and ruching of fondant all started with these two cake designs (one was based off of a Cheryl Kleiman Cake for Alyssa Milano's wedding)...

It has become so popular with our brides! Here is a recent cake with two ruched round tiers separated by a square tier which included a script monogram. Victorian lavender colored sugar tulips and pink sugar roses serve as a topper and side adornments.

Here is the lovely note we received from the bride:

Hi Meredith,
I just wanted to say thank you for our wedding cake. It was beautiful and tasted delicious as well. The tulips were amazing! I am attaching a few pictures from my photographer. Thanks again!

Erin Winters

We delivered the cake to Cafe Funchal in New Bedford, MA.
