This is a grooms cake I made last week for a Tequila aficionado as a present from his future mother-in-law.  The bride sent me an empty bottle (should have had at least a taste left in it!!) and I copied it out of chocolate cake with raspberry buttercream. I covered it with fondant and hand painted all the detail.  It was a real challenge to make it standing up.

 I love the flowers on this cake!!  So many beautiful colors and all different kinds of orchids.
The cake was all chocolate with three different fillings, chocolate ganache, vanilla buttercream, and a coffee mocha buttercream. 
The bride and groom are the nicest couple and it was a real pleasure making this cake for them.

This is a cute picture of them after tasting the cake.  I think Alexis is over the top in love with the taste of the cake.  Well maybe!!

And here is a note from her mom Linda:
"Not only was the cake beautiful and perfect, it tasted fabulous!"

"bebe" COOKIES

"bebe" is a local woman's clothing store on El Paseo in Palm Desert California.  El Paseo is the Rodeo Dr. of the desert. 
I made these cookies for them.  The colors requested were pink and black and I decided to put a black rose in the corner of the cookie and added two little green leaves.  I wrapped each cookie individually and tied the celo bag with either a black or pink ribbon.
