Labrador Groom's Cake

A couple came to visit me together, unusual for a Groom's cake. They wanted me to create a 
Labrador Groom's cake, a replica of their own pet Marley, for their celebration at the Westmount Country Club in Woodland Park NJ.

Inside is chocolate fudge cake with dulce de leche cream, covered in fondant and then painted with edible food spray to get the right color effect. The hardest part as always are the eyes, which I needed to shine and add life to the dog!

Drum Set Groom's Cake

A cake that was a long time in the planning: the Groom was a drummer and wanted to showcase his passion, rather than display a traditional white wedding cake at the reception. So we designed a replica of his drum set complete with cymbals and the Muppet Animal in the background!

We baked chocolate fudge cake with amaretto moccha and salted caramel buttercream, plus lemon cake with strawberry mousse and fresh strawberries. The front of the base drum had a Ying and Yang symbol, while on the reverse side we had the words "LOVE" in a font patented by one of his best friends.

All the drums and cymbals were carefully mounted on supports.

The reception was held at Harborside / Exchange Place on the Hudson River waterfront with fabulous views of Manhattan and Downtown New York.
