This small (8″ round) cake was an opportunity to try lace impression mat on fondant to decorate sides of the cake. White chocolate mousse filling looked and behaved well with AC on, but melted when left in the warm house afterwards. Besides the tough lesson, that white chocolate mousse cake absolutely need refrigeration, I still posted the photo of this cake when it was alive and well.

First Communion Cake

First Communion Cake

Large, very challenging project! First real attempt on gumpaste roses, made a lot more difficult by humidity in April. They took a week (!) to dry completely. But I appreciated how easy they were to handle and arrange on the cake once they dried. Swag was made using SugarVeil flexible icing. SugarVeil is awesome, even though again due to humidity it took over 9 hours to dry. It was really easy to fold and drape it over the cake few times without being afraid that it would crack or tear. The bible was meant to look aged and worn out on the cover and I used an edible image of an old bible for it. Here are also some pictures of cake details closer.

Easter Basket Cake

Easter cake was a challenge for me because I had to decorate it with buttercream. I like buttercream INSIDE the cake, I even enjoy smooth buttercream icing all over the cake. But when I have to pipe decorations with it, my hands just melt it. So it was a bit of a  juggling act: start with one color, pipe until it gets a little too easy, put it aside, quickly wash hands in icy cold water, grab another bag with different color and go on.  So this was the result: vanilla cake filled with vanilla buttercream and raspberry jam and iced with buttercream with some royal icing flowers.

This is 2 tier cake for baptism. Fondant bow looked really nice as a topper. Royal icing scrolls were more difficult to do than expected, because of vertical surface. Butterflies are a nice touch and were a lot of fun to make.
