Cake from Yesteryear

I love to do cakes. This week-end, I have a wedding shower cake, and a sample wedding cake tier to do. I was looking back through my pictures of past cakes, and thought I would share one of my favorites.

This princess cake was done for my grand daughter Tara, several years ago. The carriage is a sugar mold, and the doll body is in royal icing. Some day, I'll have an occasion I hope, to do this one again!

This tree was also a really fun cake, made for my friends birthday. The cake was stacked and cut into shape, then fondant was sculpted around, and the decorations were also in fondant. Click on the picture to see the little squirrels. I'm looking forward to the wedding cake I'll be doing, and will show you a sneak preview this week-end!
