Damask cake with chandeliers and red roses

For a surprise birthday I created this four tier cake decorated with chandeliers, piped strands and a black damask pattern. The third tier is a red quilted cake with silver beads. On top is an arrangement of red roses and a fondant monogram.

Inside are tiers of white vanilla and red velvet cake with Madagascar vanilla bean, cream cheese and dulce de leche fillings.

The cake was delivered to Buddokan restaurant at the Chelsea Market in Manhattan.

Mosaic Wedding Cake Inspired by Gaudi

Our bridal couple were crazy about Barcelona and in particular fascinated by the architecture and designs of Antoni Gaudí in Park Güell. So I designed for them a four tier wedding cake with a swirling mosaic pattern.

Inside are layers of almond pound cake with amaretto moccha filling and covered in an eggshell color fondant. The cake is then decorated with cut out shapes of fondant in shades of pink and purple, with other pieces forming a ribbon around each tier in shades of blue and turquoise.

We delivered the cake to the Orange Lawn Tennis Club in South Orange NJ
