More recent cakes

July 27, 2010

Here are some more cakes from the past month or so. I hope you enjoy them!

Smith and Wesson

Yes, this was a Groom's cake. The Groom was big into guns and this is the biggest handgun you can buy!

I love the scroll corners and the black and turquoise!

I just can't get enough of these traditional looking cakes. It is like a Navy blazer and some tassel loafers, you can't go wrong!

A combo of traditional, modern, and custom.

This is a baby shower cake, inspired by the wallpaper border for the nursery

50th birthday

A gold 50 and a figure for the birthday guy. I like the celebration pose!

I have been a posting slacker. We have been busy-decorating and vacationing all this Summer. We are looking forward to the Fall. At least looking forward to the cooler weather the Fall will bring, as we are melting in this 117 degree heat advisory!

Enjoy the pictures!

I wouldn't want to run into a shrimp this large!

need some limes!

I wish I was on a beach, enjoying a nice Corona!


I love the attention to detail and the goggles on this cake!

Mollie and Whitten

Mollie and Whitten.

We have some national press from the Wedding Channel. It is part of the Knot. I just loved the cake and cupcake displays at their wedding. A nice mention for a sweet couple!

April 2010 Pictures

May 5, 2010

I know all anyone wants to see are pictures when they look at a blog. Iwill start posting more pictures. I have to thank my old friend Mike for kindly pointing out why posting pictures has been such a huge annoyance for me. I was uploading huge pictures. I did not know it would make that much of a difference. I quickly found out it does. Here it goes. Enjoy the pictures!

This was a gift to a group of girls on their bachelorette weekend. We delivered it to Wild Dunes. It was inspired by the bride's invitation.

Caroline Jordan's wedding cake inspired by the gates at the Citadel

Heather Cusano's BLING cake. She bought the rhinestone banding to go around each tier. The background coordinated with her bridesmaids dresses.

Allison Grooms cake merged Lowcountry sweetgrass with piping to mimic the embroidery on her dress on the middle tier.

My Brother In Law made it through to become a Green Beret. Alicia and I made this cake for a celebration for his friends. Congratulations Brandon!

This cake is a merge of several styles, each could work on its own!

This is a Groom's cake made for a hunter. Mallard Duck decoys.

This cake was for a small wedding at McCrady's. The bride loved it!

This textured cake was for a beautiful bride's reception at Lowndes Grove. She asked for a loose textured look. I love the white peonies provided by Out of Hand.

Aren't these the cutest things you have ever seen??? I laughed when I was finished making all 48 of these little faces. I am not sure if I was laughing because I was going crazy by that point, or because they looked like they were staring at me!

Cake load!

April 20, 2010

I am in the midst of a cake rush, with no lack of inspiration! I am loving it. This week I get to do 2 ducks for a groom’s cake, 5 wedding cakes and a ton of miscellaneous cake details. I will post more after this weekend. Unfortunately, I left my camera and the card at the bakery.

Be sure to check us out on Facebook. I am amazed at how much traffic travels through our website and our Facebook page. I updated some things on our Facebook page a week or so ago.

We have received 2 major wedding blog mentions in the past month. The first was here at Southern Weddings Magazine:

The second was last week on Style Me Pretty!

See the post here:

We have been working hard.

Have a great week.

February and March Cakes 2010

March 23, 2010

The past few weeks have been a whirlwind! We have started “wedding season”. We have been to Magnolia Gardens, Lowndes Grove, The Old Exchange, The Charleston Convention Center, The Landing at Shem Creek (twice), the Rifle Club, The Country Club of Charleston, Doubletree Inn and Suites, Triangle Char and Bar, and the James Island Yacht Club! Whew! That doesn’t even count the cool specialty cakes we have been doing.  

Oh, I almost forgot-Alice turned 8 last week. Where does the time go?    

Robin Nest Birthday cake 


Can you have a baby shrimp, wearing a diaper, with a green pacifier on my cake? Why yes, you certainly can! This couple affectionately calls their baby-to-be their “little shrimp”!

A really, really big oyster and it is a cake! Don’t you just love it?

the pearl in my oyster, if only I had one this large...


This is a modern cake with chocolate "twists". I love the chocolate with teal.

This is a french twist on a soft and feminine wedding cake. It is an eclair croquembouche, minus the chocolate.

The essence of the Low Country, on a cake

February 25, 2010

In August I entered a cake competition sponsored by US Foods and the American Culinary Federation. I won a broze medal overall. The competition also had hot food entries from some of the best chefs around coastal SC and Ga. To my surprise, I also won a cash prize of $500! I was honored to win and thought you might like to see the cake.

It was a montage of Charleston and Low Country scenes, hand painted on rolled fondant and overpiped in several areas. I made gum paste decorative shells, driftwood and a large Palmetto tree for the top. I hope you like the pictures!
