Fall Roses

I had a 50th Anniversary cake this weekend. A three tier main cake and four sheet cakes. That took the whole dining room table, but I had just found it for Thanksgiving, so that was a bonus! They had used some muted fall colors for their wedding, so we used some of the same for this. The couple had five daughters and one of them got some hideous green napkins, but they said it looked better with the cake. I had matched the green perfectly, but it was making most of us sick, too! It was something of a strained-peas-green. But anyway, once it all came together, it did look quite nice!!

50th Anniversary, June 2008

This was a really fantastic 50th Anniversary cake I did this summer. It was a 3 tier with sotas... which I said I'd never do again! It takes a few days for my hand to recover! But it was for a really special couple. Pretty much my first employers and they've taken good care of me ever since. We just lost her a few weeks ago to a 22 year battle with cancer. She fought long and hard and will be missed by many.
Her original flowers were daisies, which I had a lot of! I gathered up a whole bucket full from my garden and found that they had no other plans for the cake table, so I used them all!
I also had daisies on the chocolate sheet cakes. Those were very striking as well.

Yes, I have a great many other cakes to catch up as well, but this is a start!
