Whimsical February Wedding

This cake is for a friend/client who is getting married today (congratulations, Thoko!).  It's a 12"-9"-6" three-tier cake frosted in buttercream.  The top and bottom tiers are yellow cake with strawberry buttercream filling, and the middle tier is chocolate with vanilla buttercream.  The bride didn't want a super-traditional cake, so we decided that the whimsical rope design was the way to go.  I really hated that I could not get the edges of the cake smoother, but I will definitely figure that out before the next buttercream-finished cake comes around.  Now, wish me luck with delivering this cake as I have to drive it over an hour away!

Tiffany Box Cake SANS Shoe

A client ordered a Tiffany box cake plus gum paste shoe for her friend's surprise birthday.  Remember the shoe?  Good.  So how come it BROKE as I was putting the cake in the car!!!!  I was mortified!  Below are two pictures: I took the first one at home and the second one at the party venue.  It took me soooo long to  make that stupid shoe!  Oh well.  Maybe next time.

A Diva Wears Prada

Well,  this shoe isn't a Prada design.  It's actually a Cake Princess original.  A client wanted a stiletto shoe made for her friend's birthday cake.  Apparently, the friend is a shoe wh*ore, so the shoe was a must.  Yes, those are rhinestones on the ankle strap!  All the design inspiration came from within :)  I hope she likes it!  (This is a 100% edible shoe, fyi.)
