I had to blog about these because they are so freakin' cute! My friend Archna just made wedding cake toppers for a friend of hers. She got these plain wooden dolls which comes in a pack of one girl and one boy doll and paints. You can also pick up different colored paints at your local craft store such as Michael's or Joann's.
I had the pleasure and honor of creating Chandra + Tony's wedding cake which took place yesterday evening. It was a gorgeous outdoor ceremony and I hope they had a wonderful time!
Chandra is an extremely talented florist (check out her creations at Chandra Abel Designs) and we met on the TOMS South Africa Shoe Drop almost 4 years ago! Her and her new husband are absolutely one of the most beautiful and nicest couples I have ever met.
The cake was a 3 tiered lemon cake with lemon curd and cream cheese filling. The groom is not a fan of fondant so it is finished off with buttercream frosting and adorned with gumpaste peonies and garden roses. This was one of the heaviest cakes I have ever made-- thank you to Vikki and Eddie for helping to carry this monster through the house, down a flight of stairs, and through a crowd of people to get to the dessert area!
It was wonderful working with All You Need Is Love Event Planning-- Vikki, Shannon, and Molly are awesome and made the delivery easy and the wedding looked amazing! I am also obsessed with their blog-- so many cute ideas (not that I am getting married anytime soon lol).
Congraulations Chandra + Tony! Wishing them many many years of happiness and love!
It was brought to my attention that I had not posted this cake on the blog! I made this last March for a good friend of mine who was turning 40. He has an actual painting of himself that I made into cake form. I really liked making this cake and making it look like a painting!
I feel like I just posted about Isabelle turning 2 and she's already turning 3! This year's theme was Pixie Hollow! The photos and descriptions, along with a recipe for modeling chocolate, is posted up on my new blog-- The Yummy Year Project!
I am very excited about this new project called "The Yummy Year Project"! I am trying 365 (vegan) recipes within one year and sharing them on the blog. It is also a fundraiser to provide food for the 60 children at The Ebongalethu Educare Center in South Africa. Proceeds from cakes will also be going to the EEC as well. I learned about this project through Food4Africa and am glad we will be able to support one specific project.
