    This cake was featured as one of the Daily Top 3 cakes on CakesDecor on July 22, 2014.

    This wedding cake is SO special to me. I did a wedding cake giveaway for a deserving bride, and this is her cake. All the flowers are hand made, and my 12 year old daughter dusted all of them (and did AMAZING!!) The bottom tier was made to look like an old ammunition box (my groom was a hunter) and then was hand-painted. I gave it my all and it took me 110 hours to do, and was SO worth it :) There is also a pic of the sweet couple seeing their wedding cake for the first time…priceless :) Thank you all for sharing in this wonderful moment with me!

    My mama gave me a darling little wooden box a few years ago, so I decided to make it for her for her birthday cake. It is all cake, about 6″ tall, and is elevated like the original box (that pic is included too :), with the bottom panels made from gumpaste. I painted the fondant first then dusted with petal dust. My Grandmother’s favorite flower was a pink rose so I made her some to put on top along with some juniper berries. It took me 23 hours to make (even had exact measurements!), it was a labor of love, and worth every minute of it. She loved it :) Thank you for stopping by!

    I really enjoyed making this cake and all the sugar flowers and twigs. The dots are textured with gold shimmer and the middle tier chevron I free-hand painted. And I LOVE my stand, In the Nude, from Sarah’s Stands :)

    I had so much fun designing this cake, and loved the colors and style of wedding the bride chose. I painted the damask tier (with stencil) and accented with green rosettes and black “leather” dots, all to match the tablecloths and outdoor throw pillows at the reception. The flowers on top are real. Such a fun cake to make :)
