I first heard about her work after receiving her book, Cakes to Dream On, for Christmas. She has such a great range: intricately floral wedding cakes, whimsical, topsy-turvy confections, thematic cakes, and some great can't-believe-it's-cake designs.
Like lace and flowers? How about this fabulous Sweet-Sixteen, which what I do believe is a Cinderella carriage on top. Look at the wheels! And all the delicate piping! Or the all-white flowers on the second tier, against the blue...just so wonderful.
Something a little more traditional, but in an absolutely beautiful color scheme; again, I'm in love with the piping on this, and the little flower chains around the bottom and third tier.
While a little more modern, I really love the visual simplicity of this design, especially the open bands around the bottom and fourth layers. Such a clean, pretty detail, and all the more impressive since I can't imagine making those, or keeping them from breaking. Lovely touches with the single center flower, and the little ones around the base.
And then....piping. Excuse me while I go swoon--all the little beading! Makes my heart go pitter-pat.
If piping and florals aren't your cup of tea, or you need a bit more color to your cakes, Colette also has these lovelies:
