I am in charge of social media bombing at work now. So of course, I mainly take pictures of what I am working on. That’s not selfish, is it?
All about kids cakes last week. I subbed for the owner so all of these are my own handiwork. The dragon head was my favorite.
This was this week’s showpiece. So no, this wasn’t for an order, just to replace some of the older cakes in the window of the shop. I did all the sugar work and most of the design with some input from my boss. The figures on top were based on two sets I made in the fall. They are HUGE. Think Barbie Doll sized. I think they have a nice graffiti look to the style of the figures which is interesting in contrast to the etherial color of the flowers and all those crazy scales. More fun at the day job!
Sugar pony-unicorn for thirtieth birthday cake. This is one of the few ideas that, if someone did ever dare get me a cake (never happen — being an industry veteran) that I would be totally enchanted with.

Black Rose wedding cake: Please don’t judge my actual skills here — while I did decorate the cake and make the black roses, I did not fill or fondant it (I know, it’s horribly done) or pick the design. I think the final product was interesting though, and lead to an obsession with black sugar roses…
