I am pretty proud of this custom cake designed for Kathy's wedding. Always amazing to me to see one of my sketches come to life, and I'm thankful for the opportunities to make it happen. Kathy was very easygoing, a pleasure to work with. The bottom tier, you guessed it, is red velvet. The roses are gumpaste and the black swirl pattern is made with fondant. I contemplated using royal icing but it wouldn't work with the curves of the cake. The smaller branch-like curves were piped on with royal icing. Congrats Kathy!
