Something Italian

My girlfriend Isabelle Loiacono gave me the idea about the corkscrews around the cake when she used this concept for a wine bottle cake she designed on behalf of the Bonnie Gordon School.

Something Red

This was a cake I designed for a special couple who was celebrating their 40th Anniversary.
Red is the symbolic colour that represents this anniversary year, so I decided to use the traditional red rose as the focal point of the design. I individually put together each rose, petal by petal, and dusted it with a ruby red colour.
The red velvet gathering on the bottom tier was used because I felt it captured two points: One being the focus on the colour red - and red velvet seemed to add class and tradition to the cake, and the second is the "bottom of a brides dress feel" that I felt it gave the cake, with the gatherings and subtle roses designs.
This cake was filled with my infamous frappe flavour - which is layers of lindtt chocolate cake, caramel frosting and infused with a creamy caramel (like that drizzle that they put ontop of carmel frappaccinos at Starbucks!)

Real Life: Tanya's Shower

These are a couple designs that I created for my dear sister's bridal shower.

The first is a three-tiered cake with layers of chocolate cake, lindtt chocolate ganache, and creamy caramel filling. To decorate the cake I created three raspberry pink flowers that had a touch of gold to match the gold trimmed border.
I also added vanilla bean cupcakes for those non-chocolate enthusiasts and topped them with my favourite green roses.
