Paris Wedding Cake

This is the wedding cake from last week.  I cannot take credit for the decorating - I only did the baking and the fondant work.  A classmate from the fondant class I took did the decorating - this was her granddaughter's wedding.  Cake is two tiers chocolate and two tiers vanilla cake, all with vanilla buttercream, fondant covered.  Photo was taken by Jim Dowling, I believe, and shared with permission from the newlyweds.

Baby Shower Cupcakes

Cupcakes for a baby shower. I'm not entirely pleased with the lighting/color on these pics, so I'm hoping they took pics at the shower. But, these were triple chocolate fudge with vanilla buttercream, and Rainbow Chip with cream cheese icing, fondant and candy melt decorations.
