Oriental Flair

This cake boasts Oriental flair both inside and out. Inside, a delicious mandarin orange and almond cake. Outside, the perfect marriage of fondant and buttercream: red symbolizing good fortune and joy, then golden yellow Cornelli lace, the color of Imperial China and a symbol for good luck.

Oragami Cake

Origami is the Japanese art of paper folding. Here, vibrant-hued fondant triangles are reminiscent of origami cranes, which symbolize peace, longevity and immortality. Topped with a black and white yin/yang cookie, this cake is as much of a centerpiece to the occasion as it is for dessert.

Marshmallow Pops

These whimsical treats are decorated marshmallows on a stick. There are several iconic treats for each season that are such fun to create!
