Gator Grooms Cake

Remember the engagement cupcakes I did for my really good friends, Carla and Scott? Well, here is the grooms cake. As much as I would have loved to have done the wedding cake (the wedding cake was part of their reception package), Carla wanted to have a surprise for Scott and asked me to do the grooms cake. Of course I couldn't say no. They both graduated from the University of Florida and they are extreme Gator Fans. She wanted something very simple but for it to be UF Gator theme. I thought the logo is the best idea and the colors I love because they aren't the true UF original colors. They are more pastel based and I think it went perfect for their May 30th wedding. They actually got married the day before my 6 year wedding anniversary. :) Enjoy!!!

Of course, the "real" photographer's pictures always come out best. Aren't the little bears with the gator gear just so cute???

This is the part I don't like. :( After the hours of mixing, baking, cooling filling, and decorating...they cut the cake. But then I guess eating the delicious cake makes it all worth it!

My First Wedding Cake

Ok so this is the long anticipated first wedding cake I did back in December of 2008. This was for my really good friend's cousin. She lives out of the country as well as her husband (now) because of their job. We had a cake tasting that was amazing and they couldn't decide between the cake flavors and fillings. The cake was 4 tiers along with 2 sheet cakes. All the cakes were vanilla covered in red vanilla fondant but each tier had a different filling. The fillings were dulce de leche, oreos cookies n cream, and strawberries. All Delicious!!!! Another cake decorator friend of mine, Kathy Munoz, helped me with the decorating of the cakes. I underestimated the amount of detail that went into piping the scrollwork design and then painting it in gold. In the end, it all came out perfect. The cake was just beautiful and complemented the season of Christmas.
