Roses & Ribbits and a Topsy Turvy Cake

I love these two cakes! The roses and ribbits is a traditional looking cake with swiss dots and buttercream roses. If you look closely you'll see frogs hiding between the flowers. Adorable!

The topsy turvy cake was a vegan, gluten free cake. Vegan gluten free cakes do not bake up very high. Even with the four layers, the cake was about three inches tall. We added a dummy cake underneath each cake to give it the height needed. All in all a fun, tasty, looking cake!

Remember the 70s and 80s when pillared cakes were all the rage? Okay, I don't either lol. This is my 3rd cake this year where brides have requested pillars. Most decide on pillars because they want the height of a big cake, but not the servings.

I'm beginning to like the pillared look. There's so many options on how to decorate in between the pillars. Flowers, fruit or how about putting delicate vines around the pillars or instead of flowers fall leaves and mini pumpkins for a fall wedding?

Lots of possibilities!
