Wedding Dessert Buffet - Cake Pops & Sugar Cookies

I had the chance to work with YUM Dessert Decor again this past weekend, as they were working on a crazy dessert buffet for a wedding out at Swan-e-Set.
The wedding colors were burnt orange, choc brown and ivory- with a custom monogram created for them.

Here are my contributions:

Sugar cookies with buttercream and fondant covers, and a royal icing monogram.

And chocolate cake pops:

Tiffany Cake

A good friend of mine ordered this cake for her buddy on her birthday.
Having seen my previous Tiffany cake they wanted to head in the same direction- YAY, who doesn't love Tiffany themed..anything really?!

The cake is chocolate cake with choc ganache & IMBC, and the 'lid' is vanilla cake with choc ganache & IMBC.

Finished with a Tiffany blue fondant, and gumpaste accents.

Happy Birthday Genelle!

Colorful Daisy Wedding Cupcakes & Cake

150 Cupcakes with small cake for cutting.
The couple's colors were orange, white, with pink and yellow accents.

Cupcakes were chocolate, vanilla and strawberry with vanilla bc.
The cake was chocolate with vanilla bc.
All the gumpaste daisies were handmade by moi!

They also had to make it up to Kamloops in close to 30 degree weather- my fingers were crossed that whole day!

Congratulations Tyler & Dawnene!

Headphones Cake

A cake for a special co-worker on his birthday- it had to look like big headphones because he is known for the huge headphones he sports at work (as a part of his job).
Apparently he wears them so often they call him Princess Lai!

The cake is chocolate with choc bc, and all dairy free.
The headband piece is black licorice covered with fondant.

Happy Birthday G.LO.!!

White Wedding Cupcakes (gluten & dairy free ones!)

Allergen free wedding cupcakes for Adrienne & Mary - I can't wait to see the pics of these all set up at Hycroft Manor, what a beautiful venue!

Cupcakes are chocolate- gluten/dairy free, as well as 'easy on the egg'.
Filled with vanilla icing, and topped with fondant.
The mini cupcakes are with chocolate bc.

All Things Grow with Love :)

A request for a unique engagement cake - the concept was provided by the client (and old school mate!), and I was happy to bring this to life for her.
The cake is lemon with vanilla bean buttercream, and the mini flower cupcakes are chocolate/cherry flavor.

Canuck Onesie

A baby shower cake for a jack'n'jill shower- the father to be, of course is a huge Canuck fan!
