Circus Themed Cakes

So I was really excited to make this circus cake (red velvet w/cream cheese buttercream), I took the original design given to me by the client and made it into my own. I was happy with the outcome and posted the pic on my FB page.  Within minutes of posting the photo I received a request to make the exact same cake.  I try not to make the exact cake twice- especially in one week. 
 I needed to give this 2nd cake some individuality and it was a bit smaller (100 servings) I changed the tier shapes, added orange into the color scheme and used a different technique on the name to give it some individuality. 

Overall I’m happy with how both cakes came out but I really think I like the 2nd one better.  I think has to do with the technique used on the name – it just pops more.  Just goes to show how simple adjustments can a difference.

Sneak Peek: Teal and Purple Sweet 16

Here is a sneak peak of a Sweet 16 cake that I am working on.
I love animal prints and to pair it with a teal/purple/black color scheme is really takes it to another level (i love cakes with black in the color scheme). 
The invite is super chic and made designing the cake really fun!  I submitted four options and this is one they chose – I’m also adding a few elements which are not shown in the sketch. 

There will be lots more to details and some behind the scenes action to come, so stay tuned!Photobucket    

Happy Mothers Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to all!  

I hope you all enjoyed this wonderful Sunday with your loved ones!

I made this cake for a mother’s day dinner.  I decided to keep it simple and go with a basic design of flowers and scroll work.

The flavor is banana cake with caramel buttercream and chocolate ganache, covered in White Chocolate fondant and decorated with Hawaiian Plumeria flowers.
