Grooms Cake - Trombone

Is the groom musical? Why not recreate his musical interest in cake!

The trombone cake was created for a groom who is a professor in the music department at Texas Tech University, Lubbock Texas.

The trombone is carved from chocolate cake, covered in chocolate fondant, and painted with edible bronze. The music notes flowing from the trombone are solid chocolate painted with gold. Chocolate dipped strawberries and some tuxedo clad strawberries complete the display.

The groom loved the cake so much he wanted to take it home as a decorative piece!

Grooms Cake - Mike and Ike

The Mike and Ike grooms cakes was created for a groom who loved the candy!

"Real" Mike and Ike candy boxes were given to all the wedding guests as favors.

Grooms Cake - Treasure Chest

The Chocolate Treasure Chest is one of our most popular Grooms Cakes.
And why not! Who wouldn't like chocolate cake, chocolate buttercream, chocolate fondant accents, edible gold, chocolate dipped strawberries, and chocolate coins covered in gold!
Most of the treasure chest cakes will serve 75 guests and have at least 75 chocolate dipped strawberries (usually more). We include some tuxedo strawberries in the display......your "treasure" will be wearing a tuxedo on your special day, so why not dress the strawberries!

Wedding Cake with Pink Sugar Roses

Hexagon shaped cake tiers are covered with white rolled fondant

and fondant swags.

Royal icing is then used to create a detailed pattern on the fondant.

Hand made sugar flowers of royal icing and gumpaste fill the spaces between the cake tiers and create a "sugar flower bouquet" on top of the cake.
About Fondant
The smooth finish of fondant helps show off the shape of carved and speciality shape cakes.
Our fondant has a taste that is very much like marshmallows! Very yummy.
Don't worry, you still get our buttercream under the fondant.
Most wedding cakes shown in the bridal magazines are covered and decorated with fondant.
The fondant is what makes them look so smooth and wonderful.
Fondant takes color much better than buttercream and can be mixed to almost match any wedding color.
We have created some beautiful cakes using bright and dark colors to completely cover the cakes.
But......these intense colors are usually best used in small amounts as accents colors over lighter background color.
