Whether you know it as Remembrance Day, Poppy Day, Armistice Day or Veterans Day, take a moment on November 11th to honor those who have served your country. Our hats are off to the men and women who have sacrificed so much to keep us safe. Today, we salute you with our Top Veterans Day Cakes.
I made two of these flag cakes and 3 full undecorated sheet cakes for the VFW and American Legion Veterans Day lunches. They flipped over them, and said they weren’t going to cut them!!!

Veteran’s Day Celebration. There are different silhouettes on each side of the cake.The background is mmf that I painted to try to make it look like a sunset. I cut the silhouettes out of regular fondant (because it takes the black food coloring better.) I hope you like it.
I made this for the local American Legion to say thank you to all the veterans for serving our country. Buttercream icing with royal icing plaque on top.
Cake was made to show tribute to our soldiers on Veteran’s Day. My Husbands school had a dinner for Veteran’s Day and i made this cake to show my appreciation for all their hard work and dedication to our country.

I had the privilege of being asked to create a cake for a retiring Veteran who was also an ex-Marine as well. It was an honor to bake for one of our country’s finest. This was my first attempt at making an eagle and I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out. Chocolate cake with mint chocolate chip filling and all gumpaste decorations.
Sculpted flag for Memorial Day. Fondant covered with fondant decorations.
I made this cake for a friend who’s Dad and Brother served and her son is in the Junior Marines program. First attempt with fondant on a whole cake so I was pretty pleased overall. Fondant covers mistakes well LOL. It is a 2 layer 9 inch Hershey’s collector cake recipe I found here (Thank you great recipe) filled and iced with Chocolate hazelnut buttercream. Covered in MMF. Insignia is candy molds (after a bad attempt at tempering white chocolate) painted with gold luster dust. Doesn’t show up well but the stars on the side have pixie dust glitter on them. Thanks for looking!
edible images military emblems, fondant bow and real fabric ribbonThe fondant gave me some problems, but it turned out alright. Of course I can see all the flaws in it…
Memorial Day cake, strawberry cake, creamcheese BC, rustic iced, stylized red poppy of rememberance, distressed dog-tags, MMF/tylose decorations, silver pearl-dust, 8″
Lest We Forget. Made for ANZAC Day here in Australia. Tastes like an ANZAC biscuit but as a cupcake. Fondant red poppy and vanilla cream.
Added this one so you can see the edible image a little better. I loved the picture. I don’t care for edible images but this one was worth it. Also, the two cakes were both done from nothing starting at 9:30 and delivered by 1:30 to the kids school for their 3rd grade classes. Had I had more time, I’d have done things differently. I’ll be ready next year!
Made this red, white & blue WASC with strawberry filling for a friend that lost her son in Iraq. Covered in buttercream with fondant buttons, belt, patch. Covered foamcore with fondant for top of 6″ WASC hat and brim. This was a labor of love and deep appreciation for this young man’s ultimate sacrifice for his country. Marcus was unable to buy his “Dress Blues” because he was deployed to Iraq & was going to buy his dress blues once he returned. His mom wanted his LCP patch on this “dress blues” cake.
Chocolate cake, torted with Irish cream buttercream and mocha buttercream, homemade fondant. The hat is rice krispies covered in chocolate ganache and fondant.
Requested by Army Mom for her son who is being deployed. Family having a big party in his honor to celebrate his birthday in May (he’ll be deployed), announce that his wife is pregnant (they just found out) and it’s his going away party. Here is the cake I came up with to include all three events. Mom mentioned she was having t-shirts made that had a yellow bow and read Army Mom/Dad/Wife, respectively, so I put baby in the onesie and added the bow. MMF. Gumpaste accessories. 3 layer 10″ square cake. God bless our troops! Box design and instructions from Sharon Zambito’s Boxes and Bows DVD.
The cake is iced in buttercream and the uniform and hat were made of fondant
SMBC and fondant, Marine going away cake
