Teddy Bear Cake and Petit Fours

This cake was made for my friend's baby shower for her gift.  The bear was baked in a molded cake pan with fondant accents for his face, feet, and bib.  He is made from pound cake and is covered with buttercream piped with a grass tip for hair.  I used food markers to write the name and color the eyes.  Vanilla and chocolate petit fours were made to match.  She loved the bear so much she didn't let anyone eat it at the party!

Wedding Shower Wedding Cake

This is a wedding shower/wedding cake I made last weekend.  The couple were married, and then had a shower/reception later.  It was a cake chosen from the Wilton Tiered Cakes book.  It was altered slightly from the original design.  It was a 3 tier cake in the book, but we made it into a sheet cake with the tiered cake on the side to make it less formal.  The flowers are hand-made from royal icing, and the bells are made from sugar pressed into molds.  The cake was yellow with an orange crumb filling.
