TOP 10 CAKES OF 2010

I created some wonderful cakes in 2010 for some wonderful clients. Some were for weddings, some parties and one for TLC's Ultimate Cake Off.  


This is definitely one of my all time favorite cakes. This creation was for a wedding for a great couple in the movie industry. They both travel a lot for work, hence the luggage and the sugar film reels represented the movies. All the labels and tags on the luggage were of places they have visited together.

I love getting unique orders like this!


This beautiful cake served 600 guests for a beautiful couple who were married at the beginning of the year at the Grand Ballroom of the Marriott Hotel. Everything about this wedding was beautiful from the ballroom itself to the floral centerpieces that adorned each table.


This is one of my favorites because I just loved the colors of the roses. The pastel colors are so soothing to the eye, I could look at this picture forever.


This cake was so fun with the Mardi Gras theme with the deep purple and golds. It's always fun to carve the cakes a bit to achieve the funky look of each tier. Bella Victorian Vineyards is a great backdrop for an outdoor wedding, nestled in the mountains, not far from the Pacific Ocean, surrounded by vineyards.


This softly sponge painted cake in shades of violet was stenciled with beautiful patterns. The monogram was created with sugarpaste and the cake was made even prettier with edible butterflies.
Oh how pretty!


Just a simple cake but oh so elegant. I love changing things up a bit and alternating the tiers between square and round.


This "Monkey Boy" bridal shower cake was created for a couple that I made a wedding cake for. I used their invitations as a guide for the design. I love making custom cake toppers, gotta love the monkey :)


The reason I love this cake so much was that it was created for a groom serving in the US Marines.
God Bless all the military personnel who make our country safe.


This is one of 13 dogs I created for a Bat Mitzvah. Each table had a different breed of dog as the centerpiece. The dogs were auctioned off at the end of the evening to the highest bidder and the money collected went to a charity.


I can't take all the credit for this cake that was created for TLC's Ultimate Cake Off. I was just part of Colette Peter's winning team that created this cake in 9 hours for Griffith Parks 75th Anniversary.
I have never worked so hard in my life, but it payed off in the end.

Thanks Colette for having me as part of your team!

I'd love to know what everyone thinks of my favorite cakes of 2010.
Which one's your favorite?

Happy New Year to all my followers!
