Graceful curving vines wrap around this beautifully simple three tier wedding cake. The textured fondant leaves add just a touch of color to the smooth surface of the fondant and echos the vine imprinted fondant cake base. The cascading flower bouquet shows off orchids and roses in green, pink, lavender, and purple.

What says patriotic more than fireworks? This pyrotechnic holiday was always my Grandpa's favorite because it also doubled as his birthday. When he was young he was convinced that the fireworks bursting in the nighttime sky was in his honor. Through the years a tradition was born, every year on his birthday cake instead of candles we placed sparklers and sang "Happy Birthday" to Grandpa as the sparklers spit their light and ashes over the soft frosting. This year Grandpa's Snickerdoodle cake was dressed up with red and white stars and a shower of edible sparkles shooting up from the center of the cake. Happy Birthday Grandpa!

A Timeless Classic-
A soft Ivory backdrop of smooth buttercream icing sets off hand crafted peach roses that rest at the peak of each floral garland, highlighting the garlands are delicate swags of coral colored stringwork. Elegant columns hold multiple tiers of luscious White Velvet Cake high above the table top, while below pale peach liquid flows gently down the cascading tiers of a fountain placed amid a wreath of peach, ivory and white roses. Filigree staircases lead down from the middle tier down to a smaller but just as showy display of roses and ruffles. From there a second set of lace like stairways end in a finale of mirrored garlands, ruffles, and roses.
