Cabin In The Woods
For my mom's 70th birthday. She wanted a cake with a creek and her sitting by it. They live in a cabin, so went with a cabin as well. This cake is based on a photo I found in a Google search, I couldn't find details of the original decorator. All decorations are out of fondant. The cabin is made out of a cardboard skeleton, with the fondant glued on with piping gel. It traveled through bumpy back country for over 3 hours, so couldn't make it out of cake or RC. Cake is carrot cake with a layer of cheesecake in the middle. Icing is white chocolate buttercream with a hint of cream cheese in it. Icing is very thin as cake is quite rich.
Making Of Red Peony Birthday Cake
Making of a birthday cake I made, with airbrush highlights and watercolor effect on satin ice fondant. Peony made with satin ice gumpaste and airbrushed red
Created for Nurse Nikki who just graduated, her mom requested a cake to tell the story of her first time in the operating room. The Doctor handed her the gall bladder & said it’s very important that she count every gall stone for the patients record (though some are about the size of a grain of sand – impossible task!) So we gave her the “Oh no Mr. Bill!” face, & the patient was made to look like her husband, haha… this was SO FUN to execute!
The graduation cake for a boy who loves theater, drawing and will be future architect!
Wedding Cake And Bride
I had the honor of making my daughters wedding cake this month. I'm just a home baker and not good with fondant or smooth buttercream so when she asked me to do this I told her my limitations. Fortunately she wanted a rustic look. I've never made a wedding cake previously so when all was said and done, it turned out pretty good. The Bride takes the cake though. She was beautiful.
Cody's Mickey Mouse Birthday Cake
It was my privilege to do my first Icing Smiles cake for 3 year old Cody. Bottom tier is 10" x 6" rich chocolate with chocolate frosting, the top tier is 8" x 11" French vanilla with vanilla frosting. The whole cake is covered in fondant, the top tier with a bit of wafer paper for texture. Mickey was made as a removal plaque so it could be kept as a souvenir.
