Russian and Welsh Wedding Cake

I had the honour and pleasure of making a cake for a student's friend this week.  The bride is Russian and the groom is Welsh and they wanted a Russian doll and Welsh dragon as toppers on their cake!  It was a very unusual combination but I think it came together very nicely in the end.

My friend, Jin, a very talented cake decorator, made the dragon and helped cover the cake as well.  Check out how elaborate the details are on the dragon!  Amazing work!  I hand-painted the Russian doll from a picture that they gave to me.  I was really pleased with the results.

They were very happy with the cake.  It had to travel all the way to the Bay of Islands so I hope it made it ok!  Here's to the happy couple.  May they be blessed with lots of love and good wishes on their special day! :)

Christmas and Spring Themed Cupcakes

Here is a quick post on some cupcakes I have been working on with a friend for our Christmas and Spring classes.  I think they turned out rather well and was quite pleased with the results. 

Spring time cupcakes:

Christmas cupcakes:

The daisy, small blossoms, butterflies and snowflakes were done with PME cutters.  Most of the swirls were done with a 1M tip.  The rest of the figurines were shaped by hand.

If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!

Thanks for stopping by! :)
