Fall 2010 Cakes

My favorite season by far is FALL!  This fall wasn't as nice as usual though.  We had a lot of rain, well the whole month of September was rain.  October was beautiful.  My husband and I attended a wedding in October and it was so hot it felt like July.  It was wonderful!  Here are the cakes from September and October.

A Simple Buttercream Wedding Cake

Super cute Mario Brothers cupcake toppers. 

Mario and Luigi turned out great!

The Smurf House.  This was cute at home, then came the ride down the bumpiest road and when I got to my friend's home, this is what the cake looked like.  The bottom looked like it was about to collapse and the balcony was falling over.  She still loved it and so did everyone else despite the
"I so love smurfs............the best bday cake I ever had!"

Gumpaste Leaves Wedding cake.  All real cake with way too many gumpaste leaves dusted with lustre dust.  I do really love the chocolate brown fondant.  It's a nice change than all the white wedding cakes we always see.
" Thank You, it was a fairytale come true for me :) Your cake was gorgeous, just like I had imagined it!! And it tastes great!it was delicious! And so thick :)Thank you again Andrea, it was perfect!!"

A super quick cake I made for my aunt's sister.  I wanted this cake to be fantastic, but family circumstances came first and I was left with hardly any time.  I still owe Teresa a naked man! lol
"everyone loved the taste of the cake. Lots of compliments were made"

Twilight Cakes.  Very fun and I used edible images for the first time.  I was a bit intimidated by them, but they are very easy to apply and look amazing when there is much detail, such as faces to be put on the cake.  I will be using these again!
"Hey Andrea,the girls absolutely loved their cakes...It was a total fiasco when it came time to cut the cakes,they didn't want Jacob and Edward cut up LOL..Finally had to cut the heads off Jacob and Edward for the girls to eat and we were able to cut the cakes LMAO..Thanks so much for 2 more awesome cakes"

Another pension cheque cake.

I really love this one!  I love the colors and I love the simplicity.  The client loved the cake I did last January with the same colors.  She wanted the same cake, but I hate doing cakes again and again, so I asked it I could change it up and tada!! 

Side view, because I love this cute little 2-tier!

Wedding cake gone Birthday cake! 
"She loved it. Everyone thought that it was so pretty. Thank you so much for making it on such a busy weekend! "

More pension cheque cakes!

LMAO!! I really don't know what to say about this one.  I just laugh every time I see it! lol
"The cake, everyone loved it and it looked and tasted so good. Thank you again!!!!!! "


These topsy turvies are so much fun!  As well as Toopy and Binoo!!  We couldn't find figurines anywhere, so I molded these.   I find they turned out pretty well.  My daughter sculpted the little Patchy Patch.  I wasn't going to make him, but she insisted and I had to add it to the finished cake! 
"We all loved it! It was a hit with the kids, thanks so much!!"

Fall weddings are so beautiful!  I love this simple white cake with all the flowers.  The colors just make the cake stand out! 

It's A Boy!  I  utilized my Cricut and made some cupcake sticks.

Austin wanted a cake for his french class at school.  I stayed up late making this one for him.  He said everyone loved it!

Halloween Birthday Cake with cupcakes.  Just buttercream.  After working with so much fondant, it's hard to get back into piping with buttercream again.

I love simple wedding cakes.  Not because they are far less work for me, but because they really bring out the elegance of a wedding.  I wanted to try the larger tier in the middle and it looks so good!  This was one heavy cake!  I delivered it 2 hours away from  my home and below is a pic of the beautiful bride and groom! 
" It turned out absolutely beautiful!!!!! You did a great job. It didn't just look good it tasted amazing too! Me and Vinny were upset we didn't get to eat more of it"

More to come for November!
