By april-liza My Wizard of Oz themed cake done in a steampunk style. This cake is what I imagined Dorothy and the Tin Man’s cake would look like if they ever got married A labour of love as this took what felt like millions of hours!The map of Oz is all hand drawn with an edible pen, the shoes and tin heart are made of modelling chocolate. The cake filled balloon is covered with a sugar veil net, and the basket is good ol’ fashioned basket weave with royal icing.

Carousel Cake By megan1979 I made this carousel cake for my Daughters 1st Birthday. There was a small turntable hidden in the top tier and the Carousel slowly rotated.
This vintage carousel birthday cake by Megan1979 is absolutely darling. The detailed tiers are intricate yet playful, and I am so impressed by the rotating carousel top!
I have been a huge Hello Kitty fan for as long as I can remember, so I was instantly in awe when I saw this pink, girly Hello Kitty cake. mfruchey did an incredible job with the delicate, feminine petal ruffles and the intricately patterned second tier. Plus, the Hello Kitty figures are spot on!
