Pig Birthday Cake
This is a cake I made for an Icing Smiles child celebrating her 14th Birthday. She loves, loves pigs, and also purple. Her mother and she decided on this theme after seeing some cake ideas I sent to her. The pigs are out of gum paste.
2Nd Birthday Big Cup Cake Cake
I needed two cakes for two different celebrations for one little girl's 2nd birthday. This is an eggless cake.
80Th Flower Birthday Cake
I loved the cake on the front of the Cake Masters Magazine June 2016. A friend at church was celebrating her 80th birthday, so I decided to do my version of the cake for 80 people. The original was made by Liz Marek, one of my favorite cake artist. The top layer is covered with homemade fondant. The bottom layer I iced with butter cream. It was fun learning to make the coconut draping fern.
Happy Independence Day! (Early, Of Course)
Easy fourth of July cake. Looks way more impressive than the effort actually needed. . . http://cupofsugarpinchoflove.blogspot.com/2017/06/stars-and-stripes.html

Lighting Car Cake.
Lighting Isuzu 3.0 TD car cake with chocolate and vanilla filling and lights from sugar.
I made this cake for my brother's birthday. Every year I make him a cake that resembles food other than "cake". This is vanilla cake with fudge frosting. I should have made a red velvet cake so it would look like a steak cooked rare when you cut it, but I did't think about it until I had finished. Oh well. Maybe next time.
My second time using fondant and first time with gum paste. I tried glazing with corn syrup/vodka solution but it stayed very sticky and also caused colors to bleed. I also had a tea pot that was meant to be on the cake as well but I miscalculated the space requirement.
