I sometimes make a cake to try out design ideas and want to see what you think. This is a fondant covered cake that I designed with sugar sculpture heart and flowers. The flowers have royal icing pearls for the centers and the hearts have royal icing pearls and Fleur de lis. The top has orange royal icing pearls in the shape of hearts and pink flowers. Let me know if you like it or have some suggestions.

Gamecock graduation cake

This fondant cake was for a USC student. The Gamecock colors are garnet and black. I didn't really think I could come make it fit the colors without looking too dark and drab. In the end I was really proud of it and I think they were very happy with it. It's hard to tell in the photo, but the sugar sculptures have a pearl finish on them and so do the pearls on the border.

I have been very busy the last two weeks and have not started my competition cakes. I did a cake for an AIDS dinner fundraiser and two for a big party that was held for everyone who attended one of the individual dinner parties. These parties were held in the homes of people all around town. I did not attend any because I had so many cakes to do, but I've been told that they were all a big hit and raised a lot of money for AID UPSTATE. I hope everyone will find that even if you are not in a position to donate cash, there are lots of ways to help your local charities. These 3 cakes were a joyful donation.

The 3 tiered square cake on the left was chocolate fudge and the bottom tier had mocha Kahlua mousse butter cream. It was decorated with embossed red fondant ribbons, red sugar sculptures and silver pearls. The 3 tier round cake was amaretto with vanilla mousse butter cream. It was decorated with silver pearls, red fondant diamonds, circles and hearts. It had wire sculptures with red decorations on them.
This 3 tier square cake has antiqued red baroque sugar sculptures, red ribbons and sugar pearls.

This is a present cake for a girl's party with chocolate fondant, pink polka dots, sugar ribbons and flower.
