Today's wedding cake and groom's cake went to the beautiful Peacock Farms in Arroyo Grande. Since the groom works for Caltrans, he wanted a cake shaped like a traffic cone...and that tasted like spice cake with cream cheese buttercream. The wedding cake was lemon with a layer each of lemon buttercream and raspberry buttercream. The sheet cakes were white velvet; one with passionfruit buttercream and the other with raspberry buttercream. The cymbidium orchids were made from sugarpaste.

This 21st birthday cake was for a young man guessed it...plays water polo. He and his teammates were in San Luis Obispo playing against Cal Poly. I don't know who won, but the cake was a big hit! (Or perhaps I should say 'made a big splash'.....groan!!!) All the figures were made from modeling chocolate and the 'water' was piping gel that was tinted blue.
