Grooms grooms grooms

Seems this is the week for grooms cakes! I am helping a friend work on a grooms cake for her son to be, as well as having a grooms cake order.
My friends SIL to be is a Navy Seabee, and she wanted to show that on his grooms cake. Although she has done many cakes, she had never done what needed to be done to make the bee, so we worked on it together.

We made a royal icing plaque of the bee, as well as making an edible image plaque of the Naval Emblem. Tomorrow we'll finish the cake, and she'll finish her wedding cake, how proud she must be to make a wedding cake for her own daughter!!

I'll be sure to share those pictures with you.

My order this week was rescheduled from Gustav, when poor Baton Rouge took such a hard hit. Our groom wanted to honor his puppy, as well as LSU, his favorite school. So..I made a chocolate chocolate labrador to go on top of his cake, and made a collar for him with LSU colors and all.

The lab took about 1 1/2 lbs of chocolate to make and smelled divine!! Chocolate cake with buttercream icing and some fondant doggie bones. Really fun to make, and I hope they enjoy it thoroughly!!

Thanks so much for sharing these cakes with me. I'm not doing many cakes right now...due to a sick family member. One day, when I have more energy and less emotion I'll blog about that. Please continue to pray though for him, he needs all of them that he can get.
