Two Beautiful Cakes for Two Beautiful Brides to Be

These cakes were both shower cakes for two lovely young women. The top cake, a three tiered chocolate black out cake filled with an Italian Buttercream infused with vanilla and almond flavorings was created for Aphrodite. Aphrodite loves flowers. So we created this romantic cake with a modern twist of pearlizing the pink fondant and scoring the fondant to create the image of threads wrapped around each tier. The flowers...a fantasy magnolia and hydrangea petals.
The second cake you see was a cake for our Vicky. Vicky's cake was a red velvet cake with a light and airy buttercream also infused with a vanilla and almond flavoring.
Vicky loves Chanel and so we created this classic pink clutch purse with a cascading Chanel Scarf ala Sweet Alchemy by Amelia with white flowers adorning the side of the cake.
The warm and inviting atmosphere at Vicky's shower was ever so special. I know...because I was there! Vicky and my children grew up together. It was indeed a very special day. We are all so happy to have shared in this beautiful day and look forward to her wedding in June to her fiance...Nick. They make a beautiful couple.
Congratulations to both our brides. Aphrodite and Vicky. Best Wishes to you both.
You will both make beautiful brides.

Mardi Gras Themed Sweet Sixteen for Ciara

This lavendar and yellow Mardi Gras Sweet 16 Cake was created for a lovely young teen...Ciara who celebrated her special birthday yesterday in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York.
Cake was a fabulous chocolate cake filled with canolli cream and a vanilla beany cake filled with milk chocolate ganache.
The masks (top and bottom) were my visions of Venetian Mardi Gras masks. The lavendar theme was the perfect contrast for the deep dark and rich colors of the the Mardi Gras themed deco's at her venue.
Happy Birthday Ciara.
