Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. 2010 was definitely a fun and successful year at Pastry Passion. I've done a lot of celebration cakes, challenging designs and met wonderful clients through my "caking."
My first cake for 2011 was a Garden inspired wedding cake. This cake was a gift surprise from the sister of the bride and she wanted a simple 2-tier ivory fondant cake with assorted flowers to crown the top tier. To match the wedding's color palette of rose pink and taupe, I sculpted gumpaste roses, hydrangeas, leaves, filler flowers and adorned the sides of the cake with taupe lace appliques. The cake's flavor was red velvet filled with cream cheese icing and iced with vanilla buttercream.
Below, I'd like to share some nice pictures and comments from the bride and the sister:
"Everybody loved your cake, Shirley. Thank you!"
Here's a close up view of the lace applique.
