70th Birthday Cake

70th birthday cake for my husband's uncle.  A hodge-podge of a few things about him: loves his recliner, collected records, loves the Red Sox, likes murder mysteries and loves gardening.  The pink ice skates refer to a story from his childhood regarding his sister's skates.  Chocolate fudge cake with ganache filling, fondant covered, fondant details.

Last minute wedding cake made for a coworker of my husband.  Or, really, her stepdaughter.  Top tier is raspberry cake with white chocolate buttercream filling, bottom tier is white cake with raspberry filling.  Fondant covered and accents, real ribbon, fresh flowers.  Tough to see, but the bottom was piped in with light pink icing, like the last cake.
