Dark Purple & Mauve

I love the combination of these colors with the white and green accents.

Wheat Farming Cake and Cupcakes

This weekend I did a cake and cupcakes for a gentleman's 65th birthday.  The party organizer told me that he drives John Deere equipment and farms wheat.  With that, I wanted to make something simple.

I started with making these wheat head medallions with royal icing to adorn the cupcakes and cake.  I went with wheat heads as the d├ęcor and John Deere colours.  It really came together nicely.  The cake was so tall that much of the side was laid bare out of fear of over-decorating.

Pink & Flowery

For my Grandma's 80th Birthday party we went with all kinds of pinks and all kinds of flowers.  I had a blast making these ones.
