Damask Bachelorette

The gal I did the chandelier bridal shower cake for wanted my recent 40th birthday cake design for her bachelorette party. Thankfully, I still had her colors on hand. I've gotten an awful lot of practice in with the stenciling and I'm so glad because I really needed it. I definitely don't tire of the damask look. It's just cool.

Princess Cake

My first crown, which was similar to previous ones, broke. So, I decided to take a different approach due to time restraints. If I had the time, I would have added more detail but it was fun to do something different and it probably went better than what I had planned anyway. The little girls' name is Paisley which is my new favorite name (so cute). What kind of cake person would I have been not to add paisley accents to the cake?

Damask Birthday

This was for a very deserving mother of 8. I have to give my hubs a shout out though because he helped me add the damask. Imagine holding a flimsy stencil in line and in place, smearing icing on it and scraping it off (evenly) all on your own. With that, you can't press too hard on it or you'll dent the cake. That's even tough with 2 people. It really is worth the effort. I just love how it turns out. The pearlization hides the fading in the flower but I can't help myself but to pearlize. I love this cake.

"Girly and Fun" baptism cake

My only instruction was to make something girly and fun. Does this cake not scream exactly that? This is definitely one of my favorites!
