The Blue Period

It's funny to me that cake weeks can have themes, and that this week was blue cakes.  The first cake I made has been planned for quite a while.  Neatherly (cool name, huh?) contacted  me several months ago.  She is a very organized person, someone who plans ahead very well.  She is celebrating her 33rd birthday this weekend, and wanted me to design something around her invitation.The invitation is beautiful-royal blue, pale blue, black and white.  Along the side on the border was a sunburst pattern which she wanted incorporated on the cake. She said that she wanted to cake elegant with a modern twist, and not too busy.  So, keeping all that in mind, I came it with this design.  The scroll work always looks elegant, and I piped on the sunburst pattern onto the top tier.  I  hope she loves it, and has a happy birthday!
The next cake I made is a repeat of one I have done before, just in a different color.  I am glad that I had the opportunity to make it in blue, because I think blue and chocolate are so beautiful together.  This is for a baby shower, and there are 18 petit fours decorating the cake board.  I really love this cake, the coolness of the blue and the gumpaste J on the top.  It's adorable!
Next week is very, very busy for me.  I will be doing a 4 tiered wedding cake, a bleeding armadillo grooms cake, and a zoo animal/monkey cake.

Wow! I just came across your site (I'm not even sure how!), and I'm so impressed with your work! I'm just starting to discover my love of decorating, and your cakes are definitely some amazing inspiration. I'm sure I'll be having cake dreams tonight!
