Simply Nautical

Simply Nautical.


The bride wanted a simple cake with a touch of a nautical theme (the rope knot) and their color was navy.

5 tiers of white chocolate cake with raspberry filling and blue velvet with cream cheese filling, all with vanilla buttercream and covered in vanilla marshmallow fondant. This was probably the heaviest cake I have ever made! The bottom tier alone weighed more than the average 3 tier cake. I had to call upon help when it came time to deliver it (Thank you, Andrew!).

And as a surprise for the groom, the bride wanted a small cake to display some of his interests… like golfing, cigars, Fireball Whiskey, boating, and Chihuahuas. I have to say that I really didn’t think I could pull that one off. None of these things really went together… or did they! Thanks to my talented sister, Brandy, who dreamed up the idea to tie them all together, this little guy was born!


A Chihuahua adorned with a golf cap (complete with a dimpled golf ball for the pompom), holding a shot glass of Fireball Whiskey in one paw, and a cigar in the other, while floating in the water on a life preserver! And to ‘tie’ it together with the wedding cake, I bordered it with a rope and the same knot!


Congratulations to Brittany and Daniel!

Big Bloom Wedding Cake



Vanilla bottom tier with vanilla buttercream and marshmallow fondant, Chocolate middle tier with vanilla buttercream and marshmallow fondant, and Vanilla and Chocolate top tier with vanilla buttercream and marshmallow fondant. All made from scratch, of course. Ribbon and black ribbon flowers, as well as double heart cake topper, were provided by the bride. The big white fondant blooms were my creation.

Congratulations to the Bride and Groom! 

A Wedding in Nature

I have always loved being outdoors. Growing up, I looked forward to camping with my family. I liked hiking and camping in the woods with my friends. Loved working at a summer camp-having campfires… and cooking over the open fire… and participating in the beautiful harmonious songs… and s’mores!!

Being in the woods and camping are awesome enough… but how about adding getting married at the base of a waterfall? That’s what one couple did this weekend. Here is the tree stump wedding cake I made for the happy campers:

4 thick alternating layers of vanilla and chocolate cake, coated with vanilla buttercream, covered in marshmallow fondant, topped with chocolate frosting ‘bark’, and decorated with random gum paste butterflies.

The end result was over 8 inches high!

Congratulations Michael + Michele!
