This cake was made for a lady who is into Harleys and biking. Last year they biked from Sask to B.C.

The trees and rosebushes were made using royal icing. The waterfall was made using piping gel. The rest (except bike and pics) is buttercream.

I made this out of rich fruit cake. The seat of the chair was a whole 8 inch fruit cake, the arms of the chair was made from a 4 inch fruit cake cut in half, and the backrest of the arm chair was made from a square 4 inch fruit cake and a round 4 inch fruit cake. I cut the round in half and placed eitherside of the 4 inch square cake to make the backrest rounded at the corners. This cake was a replica of a friends favourite chair, so was the cat!!

Made this for a couple celebrating their 40th Anniversary with family and a few close friends.  The bottom tier is 10", chocolate w/cherry filling.  The top tier is 7", almond w/cherry filling.  They will be putting some fresh flowers between the layers, wish I had them for this pic!  This cake design was inspired by a cake in the 1982 Wilton yearbook.

This is actually the 2nd cake like this one I made, the 1st one I haven't posted so I thought I would post this one. It's a square cake pan with small loaf pans for the sides and top with ice cream cones as the turrets. It's fairly easy, especially the 2nd time around, but definitely time consuming!!!

Made this cake for my husband's 40th birthday when we celebrated with his family.  Chocolate layer cake with buttercream icing.  In between the two layers I iced with buttercream then sprinkled with toffee bits.  When we ate the cake the middle tasted like caramel. Yum!  Thanks for looking.

This is for a man who just put a pond w/koi fish in his back yard.  I found the picture to the left on the internet and used it as the inspiration for the cake, though I changed a few things to make it more masculine and reflect the colors of his fish.  BC with airbrush.

All Buttercream except for the cracker house, the pretzel tree trunks and the toothpick for the fishing pole in the boat.  Modeled after a cake from the Wilton Yearbook and changed slightly to look like my brother's favorite vacation spot.  The water is piping gel.

This cake was for a man turning 40, which is why the cake is laying on the 40 yard line.  The wife requested a logo in the design and I added the Terrible Towel (The original without the writing!) for fun- since I'm originally from PA.  The cake was just chocolate with B/C icing.  The logo and towel were fondant.  Royal icing fringe on the towel.  Logo done with pin prick and edible markers

A co-worker asked me to make a cake for her SIL who was turning 40.  Yes, I messed up and put 50 on the cake instead of 40.  I was pretty embarassed when she came to pick it up and I had to do a quick correction!  Anyway, grapes and vines are fondant, wine bottle is real.

One of my supervisors at work turned 40 this month.  Everyone in my department pitched in $2 each for me to make this cake for him. (It works out well since there are 12 people in my dept.). He loved it.  The cake is devils food cake, icing is buttercream including the little man falling into the grave. I made sure to practice piping him on a tupperware dish before actually piping on the cake.  The drop flowers were made in advance so I could place them where needed. Candle says "Here lies my youth".

Since I'm not that great at smoothing the tops of cakes perfectly, I decided to pipe big dots all over the parts that showed! 
Make it seem as though you did it on purpose!
