Cocoa Polk-a-dot boutique

This boutique was created for a chic wedding. The rose was made of gum paste and the cake decorated with apple green and tiffany blue ribbon. The cake itself was German chocolate bliss with chocolate ganache frosting, satisfying those cocoa fanatics. The polk-a-dolts on the middle tier added a little girlie touch.

Family Tree

My first attempt at the tree trunk was to pipe icing down the side. As you know perfection is a kick in the butt for an idealist and it just didn't look right. So instead I used pieces of creme filled chocolate Pirouette that resembled the bark of a tree and placed it on the frosting. I used beads to cascade around the bottom and faux flowers in the top of the cake. I then sprinkled green sugar on the bottom of the cake as moss.
