John Deere Tractor Tire Cake

I was super excited to do this cake! It was for a little boy's birthday and all she asked for was something that went with the theme of wheels. So I thought a tractor tire!
This is a 10 in. chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream icing. Starting with chocolate icing made getting the black easier. I didn't get the black icing quite as dark as I had planned to but it was starting to affect the taste.
I did cut out part of the middle of the cake to get the 3D aspect of a tire. This was a fun cake to make!

Modern Wedding Cake

This is a wedding cake I just finished. The bottom three layers are styrofoam and the top was a real layer for the bride and groom to cut in to.

Each layer is covered in buttercream and most of the decorations were fondant. The hardest part was getting the fondant a dark navy blue. The bride had described it as almost black.

I took a few pictures with it "finished" before they arrived with the final touch, the roses for the top. And then just one quick one with those added.
