Pretty pattern, flowers, and Anthropologie inspired!

We are so excited that we have more gum paste flowers cake this year. Here are a few that we've done recently for our clients:

Moth Orchids flowers on top of three tier cake. This cake was a surprise for one lady that turned 60 recently. Instead of number "60" on top, the husband especially requested for "The New 40." How sweet is that?
During our meeting he mentioned that he wanted the look to be classy, modern, and elegant.  We threw in some giraffe gold print, antique brooches, and sugar pearls accent for the border. This cake was all gluten free - flavors are blackbottom and strawberries and cream.


The next cake was a 6" pink, grey, and silver combination. We meant to make an anemone flower on top of the cake, but due to Austin's humidity the petals weren't dry fast enough. They ended up all breaking :( Instead of making new petals flowers ,we were able to use some rose petals from another project. We are going to call this one fantasy flower cake! It was a strawberry shortcake, vanilla cake with strawberry buttercream and fresh strawberries inside. YUM!

I recently took a sewing class at stitch lab . Not only do they offer sewing classes, but they also sell various fun fabrics.  This cake was inspired by one of the fabric patterns that I saw there. The original fabric was green, white, and turquoise. This fabric image was "Free Spirit Anna Maria Horner Little Folks Voile Little Honey Meadow" taken from Stitch Lab flickr page.

We tweaked the color combination and here's what we came up with:
Happy 27th Birthday again Erin!

We designed a small cake cutting for Sabrina and Geoffrey at the Allan House a few weeks back. Our inspiration was a tan cardigan from my favorite store, Anthropologie!  We made a 6" lemon and cream cake covered with white fondant and topped it with grey and tan ruffled flowers.  Congratulations Sabrina and Geoffrey!

As always, thank you for stopping by!

Edible sugar paper

Oh sugar paper...who doesn't love sugar? I have a love-hate relationship with this wily "creature!"  When it's humid in Austin, I just hate working with sugar paper. It tears apart easily, gets soggy, and won't dry fast enough for cookie production. Yet when it's cool and dry, like the past couple days, I love them. Edible images on sugar paper come in very handy, especially on corporate logo sugar cookies. I can't imagine drawing computer chips like this:

Or writing pretty fonts like on these business cards:
I heart technology - printing with edible food coloring and edible sugar paper make fabulous cookie favors for all types of events!
