baltimore themed groom’s cake

Long time, no post! I’ve been meaning to post pictures of this fun Baltimore cake! A good friend of ours asked me to make the groom’s cake for their rehearsal dinner. The groom grew up in Maryland and they both lived in Baltimore so it made sense to have a Baltimore themed cake. Together we […]

the competition: IcedGems Creations

I’m sorry I haven’t blogged in forever! There was this wedding thing that had me all busy and such. I did take a break to make a wedding cake for an adorable couple, Brian and Lorene. Lorene wanted cupcakes but she wanted the cutting cake to be a little different. Instead of a small two […]
