A two tier 40th birthday cake with ombre buttercream roses. This is a simple yet pretty way to decorate a cake. Use a large star tip on a crumb coated cake, start from the inside and circle around twice. I love the effect of the ombré too!
This ombré chevron cake was for a mom' birthday. The ranunculus is made of fondant/gumpaste mixture. Lots of petals. Lots.

A cake for Sydney, who turned 21. The flowers are all made from half gumpaste/half fondant. I think combining the two is easier to work with and isn't as dry. I painted the middles with color gel. The cake is red velvet with vanilla meringue buttercream.
When I was pregnant with my first son, one of my good friends was also pregnant with her first daughter. Her daughter was born a couple weeks before my son.
