Last week I was working on a five tier light blue fondant wedding cake with chocolate brown damask patterns to display at our Cake Fiction cakery in Union NJ.
Each tier has a different damask or scroll design, I love the elaborate finish that can be achieved, even if it is a nerve racking process to get everything aligned!
On top is a fondant monogram, with small sugar flowers.

Just delivered a two tier blue and green fondant pillow Baby Shower cake for a party at Bonte in South Orange NJ. Red velvet cake with cream cheese filling and chocolate fudge cake with Madagascar vanilla bean cream, continue as our customer's favorite combinations! We decorated the cake with baby toys, a bottle, rattle and building blocks. A baby is sleeping tranquil under a fondant blanket on top.

There never seems to be an end to the variety of cakes we are asked to create. Last weekend we sculpted a Striped Bass from chocolate fudge cake with Cannoli filling and Belgian chocolate chips. Delivered to a 30th birthday dinner for a fanatical fisherman at the Freemans Restaurant in the Lower East Side of New York City NY. When we walked in all the customers were pointing and trying to decide if this was a dish from the kitchens, or.... could it really be a cake?

A topsy turvy cake for a Sweet Sixteen party at the The Palace at Somerset Park in NJ. The red velvet cake with white chocolate cream filling is covered in pink fondant, and a black and white fondant ribbon are wrapped around each tier.
Bouquets of pink roses and silver shooting stars, plus a personalized shopping bag and other surprises (lip gloss, compact, swimming goggles) decorate the cake.
