Lace wedding cake

A recent wedding cake, decorated with sugar roses, peonies and piped lace and pearls.
 

Bear and Zebra cakes

Here are two cakes made recently for birthdays. Both cakes are sculptures carved out of chocolate cake filled with ganache and covered in icing.  Even those little teeth and tongue are made of icing too!

Zebra cake

A zebra patterned marble cake.  Just a baking practice for fun.
Next month I'll be making the (almost) real thing, a standing Zebra cake.
