Rustic White Wedding {Rustic Buttercream Tiered Cake}

One of my favorite trends right now - "rustic" frosting - believe it or not there is an art to getting "rustic" to look just right. The grapevine topper and gorgeous white flowers were the perfect accessory for this wedding design.


Summer Garden {3D Garden Cake}

Rustic Wedding {White Rustic Wedding}

It just so happened that this wedding took place during the week of the crazy North Carolina snow storm of 2014. It felt completely appropriate to frost this beauty with swirls of white fluffy buttercream as I watched the snow buildup out my window! However, I'm thankful that most of the snow and ice melted before I had to deliver it - yikes - that would have been stressful!! 

Bling {Rhinestone Smash Cake}

A small smash cake to celebrate the one year wedding anniversary of one of my brides!
Congrats guys!! Here's to many more!!

It doesn't get much more simple than this design.

This would be beautiful in any color and great for tons of occasions!

Orange Petals {Square Petal Cake}

I've been eyeing this frosting technique for a long time now, hoping someone would make an order for me to try it out. Well, I couldn't wait any more, so I went ahead and make a little cake for my friend Jennifer's birthday. I just love the look of the overlapping petals! 

Rah Rah Rah for Rocket {Little Einsteins Cake}

This show used to be one of our favorites - so I had a ball making a fondant replica of Rocket, from Little Einsteins. I got my girls to sign off that I got all the details JUST RIGHT before I put Rocket on the cloud cake. It ended up so cute! I'm sure little Liam loved it!
