Ahoy Boy Baby Shower Cake

A few weeks ago I got a call from Rodney.  His sister was having a baby and wanted a really fantastic cake for her baby shower.  The decorations were all based off the Ahoy Baby Boy set of plates and decorations.

We wanted the cake to be a very bright color scheme, but still keep that baby blue motif.  I printed out a few sheets of blue gingham on edible image sheets and used it as a border on each tier.  I took one of the plates and used it to make templates for the whale, the turtle, and the "BOY" lettering.  The bees were just too small to cut from modeling chocolate, so I printed them out on edible image sheets too.

We delivered this cake to the Rome Library and later that afternoon I got a call from Rodney.  He said that everyone, including his sister, really loved the cake.  That's the kind of feedback we like to hear!!

Art Deco Wedding Cake

We delivered this wedding cake to the Hunter Museum in Chattanooga Tennessee this weekend.  I had such a great time making this cake.  This is certainly not your typical wedding cake, but the couple really wanted a colorful art deco cake.

I had not done an art deco cake before, and I really wasn't super familiar with the style, so I hit up Pinterest and starting doing some research. When I met with the bride, she immediately fell in love with a cake I found on CakeWrecks that was similar to this one.  (Baker Unknown).  We did change things up quite a bit though, and the bride had these koi fish that she wanted to incorporate into the cake.

The cake was covered in butter cream, and all decorations were made from modeling chocolate.  Well, except for the koi fish; they were printed on edible image paper.

Is this art deco style a trend now?  Have any of you bakers done any art deco cakes lately?

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great week!

Peacock Inspired Wedding Cake

I don't know if the Katy Perry song has had anything to do with it, but lots of brides lately have been considering peacock for their bridal inspiration.

When I met with this couple, they definitely wanted peacock incorporated into their wedding, but they wanted something not so literal; more of a "hint" of peacock, I guess you would say.

When the bride saw a similar cake from Art Eats Bakery in SC, she completely fell in love.  We tweaked and loved on the original design, and made into something that would really fit in with the couples big day!

We delivered this beautiful wedding cake to the wonderful ballroom at The Chattanoogan in downtown Chattanooga.

Congratulations Hallie and Joel!!

60th Birthday Golf Cake

I made this golf cake recently for my high school art teacher's husband.  Even though it's been a LOONNG time since I was in high school, I have always stayed good friends with Jeanne and her husband Ken.  Ken was turning sixty and was preparing for a big party with family and friends.

Ken's an avid golfer, so can you guess what he thought was so great about turning sixty?  Yeah, I had no clue either!  Well, once you turn 60, you get to golf from the golden tee markers, which are closer to the green, and the little hole I guess. 

This little golf scene includes some of the hazards of the game, as well as the green and those golden tee markers.  We also made some golden golf tees from fondant.  Ken was very happy with his cake and we were happy to be a part of the celebration.
