Teal ombre display wedding cake.
I finally finished this today, as I had hoped. All I had to do is add the gumpaste briar rose. I could have made the strips of icing with a ribbon tip, but didn’t think about that until later. Instead, I used a #127, which is a large rose tip. I’m hoping to have one display cake made a week until I get a better representation of my work up there. If I’m the one making the wedding cakes, it might as well be me to make the displays!

I like these cakes; they take some time, but they’re not hard and they look nice. :3
You always do impressive icing work, Sis. Yeesh!

Salvaged wedding cake! You gotta read this story folks….
I had three wedding cakes today, and already had overtime; therefore, I was supposed to leave early. So I was about to walk out the door when the other decorator took a phone call, and I could just see her facial expression change from casual to “oh shit”. A gentleman was calling us because he picked up a wedding cake for his son at our sister store… and then dropped it on the way to the reception site. He called the sister store, but their decorators had already left for the day, and the wedding was in three hours. So he called us. After a little deliberation, we decided if he could bring it in asap, we would do what we could to save it. So much for leaving early!
When the damaged cake arrived 15 minutes later, the top tier was almost halfway smashed to bits, and the bottom tier was salvageable, but just barely. The father was very nice and apologetic, and said he’d pay whatever to get it fixed. He also mentioned in passing that there were only two flowers, but not sure why. His wife was almost afraid to talk, she was so nervous about he cake! The other decorator and I removed the top tier, scraped the icing off the bottom tier, set a new support structure, and worked on recreating the top tier. Upon removing the icing of the top tier, we noticed how uneven the cake was cut (see bottom photo)! We had to cut new cake and make an entirely new top tier. I washed and dried the ribbon since we didn’t have ribbon that matched the icing, and the other decorator worked on airbrushing two new briar roses and retouching the original two (which didn’t match in color to begin with). In about 20 minutes, we had it reconstructed as close in design to the original as we could get.
When we were done, I decided to charge $20 for 20 minutes of work since they were so polite. When they returned, they were sooo grateful. The mother finally looked more relaxed, and told us we were life savers. After seeing we only charged $20, especially when we were supposed to be off work already, the guy tipped us both $20 and insisted we keep it. :3 I emailed my boss when I got home to tell him why we went over hours this evening, and he said he was very proud of us to take care of the customer even though we had overtime and it wasn’t even our problem to begin with. Yay!
I was happy to save someone’s wedding day, and even more happy to get such a nice guy out of trouble with his son!
Wow. I feel terrible for the family but you did such a great job fixing it. Awesome, Sis!!!
Just another photo of my Sunburst focusing on the cascading flower spike with a few open blooms.
The idea came from the fact that US markets toss out 15 billion dollars worth of fruits and vegetables each year just because they are bruised or discolored. But they are still fresh and edible. I felt there was an opportunity to stop the waste, so Ugly Fruit was born. Ugly Fruit is a stand that makes juice, jams, and dried fruits out of unattractive produce donated from our neighborhood grocery stores. Ugly fruit, pretty yummy!

I want this exact same cake for my birthday.
But that white inside part should be liquid white chocolate.

Last night, my university gave an honorary master’s degree to the service dog who sat through every one of his owner’s classes. He dressed appropriately for the ceremony.
