Peony Glitter Cake

This cake was for a couple who came back from UK.  The design looks normal on the outside...its the cake inside that is interesting.  Teal and peach color butter cake.

It was the first time I use edible glitter. It used to be more glittery but I guess after the controversy of it being non-edible they made it really edible this time but it came without that shine.  You win some you lose some.

Blush Pink Peony Wedding Cake

When it comes to color I am very inconsistent in my liking.  Today I can tell you its black black black.  Tomorrow I can totally throw you off balance when I say lilac!!!  Hehe....I am an emotional person and this emotion spreads to my color chart as well. 

But then...after finishing this cake I love it.  And after more than 2 months I am still in love with it.  In fact it has become one of my personal favorite.  Don't get me wrong...I have not crossed over to be all girlie and pretending to be young.  But I believe it is the subtleness of three shade of pinks together that is affecting my judgement.  It is calming yet flirtatious. I am weird?  But least it is my favorite for the time being.

Wafer Paper Anemone Cake

My latest craze is making wafer paper flower and I am proud to say that I have managed to find a way to vein and shape the petals like in sugar paste and even wire them.  Yay!!

These anemones are not the usual black and white but midnight blue and white.

Valentino Garavani Shoe cake

I was given the task to make this pair of shoes with sugar paste....change the color to white and gold (theme color) and to her size!!

The cake is in the shape of the shoe box complete with 'tissue paper' & cover and white sugar peony.
