V&M Wedding - Wedding Cake

We were very excited to make a delicious and giant wedding cake for Vanessa and Martin's May wedding at Columbia University's Faculty House.

The cake was a four tier pound cake, covered in rolled fondant. The cake was slightly taller than 2 feet and decorated with sugar flowers and petals dusted in edible gold. Each tier was then decorated with gold ribbon.

The cake came out great, and we just know that it was delicious!

Everything Butt Art Cake!

T&B had a great time making a cake for the Everything Butt Art officil book launch a few weeks ago. The book teaches children how to draw fun animals using the shape of a BUTT!

We used the techniques in the book to draw and make the animals for the cake, and can definitely tell you that the book is easy and fun to use!

Sweet, sweet William

In honor of the new Duke of Cambridge, I planted some Sweet William this weekend!  Although I did plant both some little seedlings and some seeds.  I didn't want to wait until next year to see them flower!

Sweet William (Dianthus barbatus), also called bunch pink or bearded pink.  It is usually treated as a garden biennial, seed sown the first year producing flowering plants the second year. The plant, growing to a height of 60 cm (2 feet), produces numerous flowers—white, pink, rose to violet, or sometimes bicoloured—with fringed petals.
Many sources contend that the flower was named for William Augustus, duke of Cumberland, who led British forces against the Jacobites at the Battle of Culloden in 1746. Other sources claim, however, that the name of the flower can be traced to the writings of Thomas Tusser, a 16th-century English poet. In Scotland the flower is known as stinking Willie or sour Billy.

I can't wait for these little cuties to bloom!  I'll post some pictures when the do (although it might be next year!)
