|I was going for Woodland Fairy and got a little carried away! This Barbie Doll Cake turned into a floral wonderland. It's covered in Dogwood, Wisteria, White roses, Sweet Peas, Daisies, and Forget me nots. Did I forget any?|
The real challenge on this cake technically speaking, is the angles that you have to contort hands arms and wrists to get the flowers in just the right places.

|I love the look of this Icy Christmas Cake. It says holiday but also Winter. I employed silver dragees and silver leaves to accent this piped on poinsettia.|
|I used a braided vine technique around the sides to continue the white on white look.|
The crystal platter under this cake added to the cool crisp look of this Christmas Cake.
Anita combined the Decadent Chocolate Cake with the red poinsettia. Gorgeous on the dark chocolate.

|Here Leah is concentrating on getting the Embroidery detail on the sides of the cake. It was amazing how fast she got this done. She very lightly sketched the basic shape of the design, then free-handed the rest.|
A close up of the detail gives a better look at this beautiful technique.

"Rum Kaluah Cake" is what my clients order when they want this cake. This is such a versatile cake , because it works for all occasions. I have even made a variation of this for a wedding cake. I have used all kinds of things for the decorations on the top of this dessert style cake. I've made white chocolate horses for my Aunt who is a Horse enthusiast -to pirouette cookies for a dinner party. Chocolate dipped Oreos are gorgeous on this cake as well.
The best part of this cake is the way it tastes. Every occasion I bring this cake to, I have someone say It's the best cake they've every tasted. Even people who don't like cakes like this one. I use Pastry Pride Whip Topping to keep it light, especially in contrast to the decadent chocolate Ganache. Check out the video to see all the tips and secrets as well as the instructions for making it yourself. But SHHHH don't tell, your friends will think you're a genius when you show up with this cake. :) Happy Decorating Liz

A message from one of our viewers with alterations for making this cake Vegan.
Thnx liz. We all loved this cake. As i m vegetarian(no eggs) and dont take alchohol too, i used artificial brandy flavour and used egg replacer for egg white in toasting almonds. The cake came out really delicious as you said in ur video. I used stabilized whipped cream( i add tartar instead of gelatine). Thnx a lot again for delicious recipe
Cupcakes can be fun and Decadent!

|Double hearts are an elegant alternative to a stacked cake. It is techically two tiers, they are just side by side. This Design is perfect for a large Mothers Day cake as well as an Anniversary Cake. I love it for a small Wedding cake also.|
A delicate side treatment adds so much to this design. This dropped string technique reqires a steady hand, but is quite simple with a little practice.
I love Wisteria and Roses together with a lattice work design. The lattice made with a Wilton #4 writing tip, add another dimension without being overwhelming. It also creates a nice frame work for the decicate flower treatment. The Roses are made with a Wilton #124 and the Wisteria with a # 104 Rose tip.

|Check out a Cake YouTube friend Maria made for her client! Gorgeous! Maria said her client was thrilled!|
Maria's version of my Barbie Cake Video is placed on a pedestal of a square cake. Great Idea Maria. Her delicate Cornelli Lace with pearl candy accents is a sweet addition.
