I was being rushed out the door to head out of town for the Thanksgiving holiday. The batteries in the digital camera were dead, so I had to use my phone.

This is carrot cake and red velvet cake with fondant and buttercream decorations.

Ashley & Tim

A Halloween Wedding!

Ashley chose 5 different cake flavors. The bottom tier was a raspberry-almond torte. The next tier was carrot, and the top two were chocolate.

Everything was edible, including the bride and groom. All the icing and decorations were buttercream, except the pumpkins and the bride and groom, which were made from fondant and gum paste.

The cupcakes were Bone Digger (vanilla), Coffin Cover (chocolate), Banshee's Blush (strawberry) and Scarlet's Revenge (red velvet).

In a galaxy far far away....

Sam's 5th Birthday cake. It is a total coincidence that the icing matches the table decor perfectly.

Baby shower, CakeWrecks "Sunday Sweets" tribute. Vader, the baby and blanket are all hand sculpted from fondant.

Yeah, you just saw this one, but it fit the theme.

Can you tell how happy I am :) Thanks again and we will be calling again..." ~Stephanie

"Oh my gosh. Thank you so much for the totally KILLER cake! I couldn't have come up with something more beautiful (or delicious!). ~Rachel

"This cake not only looked tasted GREAT! You did an awesome job, Carrie! Thanks again!" ~Jen

"These were, without question, the funniest cakes I have ever seen. They COMPLETELY rocked. Better yet, to describe their flavor I can only say this: The chocolate cake was literally a culinary orgasm. The carrot cake was a religious experience. Now, I should tell you that, at one point, I was actually eating a piece of BOTH of them AT THE SAME TIME -- my first official "two-fisted" cake experience. Thus, these cakes have officially produced my first ever simultaneous culinary/sexual/religious experience. Yeah. They were THAT good. I would almost be willing to become a Republican if it meant I could have cake like this every day....

PS: The village people, red meets blue, Dem meets Rep, "marriage eqality 2010" cake was my favorite. The chcolate one we actually finished off for breakfast this morning, and the "Return to the Right 2013" was ousted from our house, and is currently making a group of retiree church volunteers VERY happy. Thanks again!" ~Nichole

It's strawberry cake to complete the Pinkalicious theme.
Cherries and cupcake cups are marshmallow fondant. The rest is buttercream and nonpariels.

"The only thing I can take credit for is finding the most awesome cake baker ever!!! I asked for a cupcake cake in shades of pink because Emma loves Pinkalicious (the book). (Carrie) took that and went so far above and beyond by making this cupcake tower with cupcakes that look EXACTLY like the cupcakes in the book! Emma loved it, but I don't think it is possible for her to love it as much as I did!!:)" ~Amy

Tiered cakes and other randomness

Praise Your Children and They Will Bloom!

Lamby Cake. Coincidentally, I made this cake on Passover.

Sweet 16.

A long time to make this cake it did take. Cake also is the Death Star.

Inauguration cakes. The decorator does not necessarily endorse the messages on 2 of these cakes.
Groundhog Birthday

Cuppy Cake!

Independence Day cake. The cake was layers of white cake and red velvet to look like stripes when you cut into it.
