Musically Themed Cake

Congrats to Matthew and the whole Lineberger family on completion of your senior recital!  I was honored to make four cakes for the reception following the recital, and this cake was the centerpiece of the cakes.  It is a 9"x13" underneath an 8" round cake.  It is a yellow cake with vanilla buttercream and fondant piano keys.

Lila's First Birthday

Happy Birthday to Lila, the cutest baby in my neighborhood!  I was honored that our friends (and her parents) asked me to make her cake.  I made a six inch round cake for Lila, and a sheet cake for everyone else.  Both cakes were almond butter cakes with buttercream icing, and they were delicious!

Three Tier Offset Square Wedding Cake

Below is a wedding cake I made this past weekend for a great couple.  Congrats, Kristen!  Kristen wanted a square, three tier cake with black and red ribbons, swiss dots, and offset or twisted tiers.  Here's how it came out:

A close-up.  The ribbon and topper are not edible, but everything else is.

The cake table, putting the cake in perspective.  The tiers measure 6, 9, and 12 inches square. 

The top tier is a white vanilla cake, the middle is chocolate, and the bottom is red velvet.  All three layers are decorated in buttercream icing.
