I have been making lots of peanut brittle. 99 pounds of it to be exact for a Halloween order and here are pictures of the way I am packaging it this year. If anyone else wants some just respond to this post or send me an e-mail at pastrypam@hotmail.com and I will be happy to make some for you too.

This cake was done for Nicole who works at the beauty shop where I get my hair done. She was married quite some time ago but never got a wedding cake on her wedding day. So for her anniversary she wanted a wedding cake to celebrate with her husband. She had a very romantic dinner and evening planned and I hope this cake helped to make it extra special.
The flavors are vanilla cake, vanilla bean pastry cream with fresh strawberries. The roses are hand made by me out of gumpaste. I told her to save them as they will keep forever if stored properly.
This cake is so sweet I just want to squeeze it!!

This cake is very similar to another Topsy Turvy cake I did but in completely different colors. I was a little nervous about the colors because I only had a bad e-mail picture to look at for the color palette. When I got to the venue I was happily surprised to see just how well the colors matched the table linens. There was even a gold underlay that matched the gold numbers and letters on the cake.

The cake was chocolate with a chocolate mousse filling and crunchy pearls. Covered with chocolate buttercream and fondant.
With all my fretting over the colors I am very happy with the way it looks.

Here is a nice thank you I received from the hostess:

"thanks for everything pam, the cake was beautiful AND delicious. and we LOOOOOVED the candy and peanut brittle."
