Happy New Year! Share your best cake from 2012! - Page 2

post #16 of 69

THis is a 12 x 18 two layer sheet cake with vanilla buttercream filling. It's iced with buttercream and then covered with MMF. All of the decorations are made from gumpaste and the walkie talkie is rice krispie treats smoothed with melted chocolate and then covered in mmf. Thanks for looking!

 

 

 

 

My favorite has to be this one - I made it for my Darling Daughter to celebrate her graduation from the Regional Police Academy. It was a "work of heart"! ;)

Difficult, I loved a lot of cakes I did this year. Unfortunately I recently broke my camera and only have a few pictures  I can choose from.

This cake has it flaws (the picture is horrible) but I loved the elegant simplicity of it.

 

Happy 2013 to all of you!

I couldn't narrow it down to 1, so here are my top 4, in no particular order.

These two are my favourite of the year, although I love everyone of course! The 1st because it took so much work to make happen and has opened some cool doors for me and the second because it was so personal to the bride.

Russian & Nautical themed wedding cake. Top and bottom tiers were Vanilla bean with berry IMBC and the middle tier was dark chocolate cake with caramel IMBC. The dome on the top is a half circle polystyrene covered in sugapaste. Royal icing piping and the russian domes and waves I hand cut from gumpaste. So much of the couple went into this! As 'unusual' as it is, it's probably my favourite of 2012.

The cake with the future bride & groom :)

post #24 of 69

This is my absolute favourite of all year. It was a challenge and I had been wanting to do it since I saw it on another cake artist's website. When the bride told me they were going to China for their honeymoon, I had to grab the original and show it to her. She agreed on the design, we only made a couple of changes. I had never done tapered, double height tiers before.

This as the cake from the past year that most faithfully represents the picture I had in my head when I started the project:

Just sayin, I'm happy a few of you posted some of my favorite cakes that YOU did so I could get them on my Pinterest.  I get to refer back to them and and steal from them heavily now.

 

Fist pump!

didja ever go the restaurant and when everyone's order arrives,

you realize you want what someone else ordered and not

what's staring up at you from your plate?

 

we call it being restaurant impaired

 

i wanna have made y'all's cakes icon_biggrin.gif !!!!!

but anyway

 

the cool thing about this cake is the ralph lauren cut crystal pedestal plate

that just happend to be perfect --sight unseen until delivery

and in person it made the cake to look floating due to the grand glass top foyer table

topper is chocolate

 

i mean how often does an unknown cake plate offered by a well intentioned relative

really ever fit the cake size and all?

just about never in my world

 

ralphie did good this time!!!!

 

and this is from 2011 but it's pretty cool

it's over 2 feet tall--it was for the terrapin triathlon party

he contacted me on a wednesday evening and needed it for Saturday

i was semi-retired then and my schedule was clear

he wanted a turtle cake

ok cool i thought a flat turtle cake i could pop that out

then he made the mistake of saying,

 

"i'll send you our logo, let your creative juices flow"

 

 

icon_biggrin.gif bwowahahahahaha icon_biggrin.gif

 

i mean i had no time to re-think it after i saw the standing up terrapin

i gave him a generous portfolio discount
