Just Bakin' Away!

Saturday, I had to do a wedding shower cake for our friends daughter. Steph is about 26 now, I've known her since she was 2. I don't know where the time went. The first time I saw her, she was playing with her brother in the sand box. Now she's a law school graduate, marrying a medical student graduate! Her brother completes his law classes in May. Great kids, I love them both.
Then today, I have to give a sample of the cake I'll be doing for a wedding in June. This one is a layer of home made carrot and a layer of homemade banana. Cream cheese icing over all and covered in fondant. I made the shells from candy molds and white chocolate, then brushed them with different colors of pearl dust to give them a real feel. The pearls are also fondant rolled in the dust. Of course, this is just a mock up. The real cake will have the pearls put on like strings of pearls, a clam with pearls in it, and I just put the extra chocolates on top, the real cake will have their cake topper. It will be 4 tiers. I'm hoping this is ok, but I'll make any changes they want.
