Comfort Shower 2015 – Bee themed cake with honeycomb, stripes, polka-dots and bees, of course!

After dropping off the Routh’s wedding cake, it was time to head home and finish packing for the drive up to Michigan and prepare for the Urbanczyk wedding shower. ¬†The next cake is one that is special to my heart since it was for my niece, Alyssa – If you have spent any time at all around me, you know that there are not many people more precious to me than this child of my heart.

The shower was bee themed and let me tell you, baking cake in a kitchen not your own is a little different – Of course, I’d brought my specialty equipment, and had already prepared about 50 modeling chocolate roses to top the cupcakes that were being served in honor of those who are not fondant fans – In addition to the cake and the cupcakes, with the help of the bridal party and the family, we also put out a gorgeous dessert table, using the 3-tiered cake as the centerpiece.

The cake itself was challenging, but it was important to me that it be beyond special – All three tiers were covered in white fondant and embellished with modeling chocolate – The honeycomb was being a little difficult and the hand-drawn heart on the top tier had me quaking, but I believe it turned out lovely! ¬†Alyssa was happy with it, and that’s all I need.

Both Alyssa and Jake loved the cake, and I loved making it – Of course, my thoughts immediately turned to the star of the entire show, the wedding cake I’d be making for them in June. No pressure, right?
