Elegant Ivory

I love this one. It's very elegant with the leaves and vines in ivory. This cake has real ribbons in green and yellow around each tier and was topped with fresh flowers.

Fun fact: Real ribbons and lace can be put on a cake covered in fondant...they cannot be put on a buttercream cake. Just something to keep in mind when deciding what you would like on your own cake!

The Perfect '10!

Congratulations to all the graduates of 2010!

This cake was made for the daughter of one of my neighbors. I remember when she was only a little kindergartener, and now she will be attending American University this fall. Congratulations, Julia!

This cake was made for a joint graduation party. They did not attend the same high school, or participate in the same sports, but we were able to incorporate and highlight each of their high school colors and interests. Congratulations!

Sunny Summer

This cake was delivered to the Beautiful Stone Manor Country Club in Middletown, MD. Although it was a bit of a rainy day, the decoration inside the tent screamed sunny summertime! They used sunny yellow, hot pink, and bright orange as the colors and it looked so cheerful! Keeping their colors in mind, I dusted handmade sugar flowers in those bright colors and used them on the cake.

Family Traditions

Hello! It has been very busy at Cake I Do. With all the beautiful weddings of June, as well as graduations, we have so much to show you!

I have made this cake twice now and it is very unique. Part of this family's tradition is to use their grandmothers cake pans, that when put all together create a large "ring". It is a very sweet tradition which allows for a very special end result. This couples theme was "Virginia", so in true Virginia style, hand made dogwood blooms were placed all around the ring. It was delivered to the very elegant Cosmos Club in D.C., and it looked beautiful!

More to come!

The Golden Girls

I made these for a Golden Girls themed bridal shower for my neighbor. In true Golden Girls fashion, they are chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream. Yum!

Red Blooms

This is one of our cakes from the weekend. Cherry Blossom branches were painted onto a fondant cake and the blooms were painted and dusted a deep red. It looked great with the chosen decor!
