The Bride Gave Us Her Approval !!

Every now and again we will have a groom approach us and order his own groom’s cake and sugar art for the wedding. In this particular instance we decided to ask the bride for her permission before we proceeded …. I think you can see why!

This groom wanted Roadkill Possum for his groom’s cake. We’re not kidding !!!! With the bride on-side we made the cake out of bright red colored raspberry red velvet cake and layered it with raspberry truffle filling, chocolate creamcheese and chocolate buttercream layers. Yes, we even put veins inside  ….. again … the bride said we could ;-) So that it was evident the possum was roadkill we placed tire tracks, made out of fondant, on either side of the possum cake.

Only in Tennessee.

This chocolate castle is fashioned after the Marine Corp Sapper logo. It was created as sugar art for a groom who served us in the Marine Corp. This edible tribute is a thank you to Charlie P. for his service to this country.

Sugar art at its strangest! The “wooden” salad bowl is entirely edible as are the salad spoons, which are made from modeling chocolate. The lettuce and other “veggies” are made from fondant.

Carved cake to look like a birdhouse nestled among the dogwood sugar blossoms.

Sculpted Cake That Tastes Great.

This birdhouse amongst the dogwood blossoms is actually a lemon cake with lemon cream filling and fiori di sicilia buttercream frosting. The roof is made from modeling chocolate and the cake board is carved chocolate. The dogwood blossoms are made from gumpaste as are the butterflies and birds. The entire sculpture is edible.

Marshmallow fluff, caramel, roasted peanuts, chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream frosting.

GOOey GOOey Cake

Rich Belgian chocolate cake layered with *Kenny’s marshmallow fluff, smooth caramel, roasted peanuts and dark chocolate buttercream … what can we say? … some like it sweet!

*As a small child, my brother Ken saw an add for marshmallow fluff and wanted to make a “Fluffer Nutter TM”. We didn’t have any marshmallow fluff in the house, so he made his peanut butter Fluffer Nutter sandwich with mayonnaise! This cake is a tribute to little Kenny and all the other aspiring gourmets out there.
