I made this cake for a friend of mine who is turing 40.  For the record, no I don't think this age is over the hill but had to pick on her cause I am not there yet, LOL.  She loves horses so I the first thing that came to mine was to make a tired Old Mare so we can put her out to pasture.  The horse is a BCT and the cake is chocolate fudge with mini morsels.  The icing is chocolate buttercream.

A customer saw a similar cake on my website and decided on this version. They loved the sucker on the top.

I got the idea from your site!  This cake was for my twin sister-in-laws who were turning 40!  It was a big hit at the party!  There were some pics taken that I cannot share!

I did this cake for my Aunt's Best Friends's 40th birthday.  They gave me creative license and this is what I came up with.  It is a 3 layer topsy turvy cake with an extra 16in cake on the side to make the flat part of the island.  

Mediums were buttercreme, fondant, royal icing, chocolate candy sticks, and pretzels.

This was a lot of fun creating.  Thanks for looking.

I copied a cake from teesue that I loved! Thanks for the inspiration! My sister was turning 40 and my brother who shares the same birthday turned 35. We were camping so I just left the cake in the pan so it would travel better. They both loved it! BTW I blew up the pic on teesue's cake and did a fbct with it!

Fondant game of Life for a 40th birthday.  Special occassions in his life were all around the board.  Game piece was a mini fondant golf cart - huge family joke there!

This cake was made for a friend on her mothers b-day.  I used white choc. to make the circles and put a purple glazed icing to the top of tiers.  We wanted to cake to look like it was falling in on itself.  This was my first tiered cake and first to make unlevel.

This cake was for my mothers 40th Birthday.  The circles are white chocolate with purple coloring.  the top of the tiers are purple glaze with balck icing piped in design.  I crumbled the rest of the left over chocolate to cover the bottom of the tray.  Everyone had balck andpurple mouths after eating this cake.  The tiers are also tilted just a little for a little more pizazz.

I have trouble with flat icing but this was my first attempt this year and I hand painted Tigger on the top for my friends 40th Birthday as she is mad on Tigger, As this was my first attempt at flat icing I was quite please and even though there was a small crack through the icing my friend was over the moon with her cake :o)

This was for my husband's surprise 40th birthday party.  I hadn't done a fondant cake in over a year (as you can tell!) but I was generally pleased with the result.  Two-tiered chocolate cake with chocolate raspberry buttercream filling.

This is an Italian Cream Cake and decorated in black to tease someone's daughter-in-law about getting old.  It's for her 40th birthday.  I think that makes me ancient then.  YIKES! LOL

My first posting to the board. We made this cake for my sister's Black & White themed 40th birthday.  She is very involved in scrap-booking, so we made a 'this is your life' book chronicling major stages of her life for the last 40 years.  The photos are laminated copies of old pictures.  Behind each photo is a fondant backer with captions done in food coloring pen. All else is butter cream.  Cake is a double layer of 12x15 sheets, yellow on one side, chocolate on the other, carved into book shape.

I made 2 9X13 stoneware pan cakes and placed them side by side.  I did a BCFT of the Grim reaper design I saw on this site.  I learned that chocolate frosting in a can doesn't freeze so it all came off when I peeled the wax paper off.  I had to fill it in afterwards.  This was the first time I ever placed ribbons on a cake.  I wish I could write better.  I need to take a class on just the handwriting.

This was for a friend's 40th birthday. He owns a classic 1964 VW Bug that he takes to regional car shows. The car is iced in buttercream. The caricature "Head" is made of maccaroons covered in fondant. The sign posts are metal curtain rods. The signs were created & printed using my computer. The roadway sign reads: "WELCOME TO LIFE IN THE NOT-SO-FAST LANE".

I made this cake for a lady that I work with for a friend who was turning 40.  This was my first paying cake decorating job.  Everyone loved it at the party.  It was chocolate cake covered in chocolate buttercream, and the game pieces on top are made out of MMF.

I did not have the wonder mold so I used the soccer ball pan for the dress and cut a hole in the middle for the Barbie doll.

This was for a surprise 40th birthday luncheon and is an adaptation of a cake from the Wilton 2007 yearbook - theirs is all fondant, mine is all buttercream except for the fondant bow.  I had to decorate this cake using a flashlight - the power was out for hours........

MMF Fondant covering chocolate cake from scratch.  I used colored gumpaste for stars and spirals.  I tried the painting tech on the large star with thinned gel color, it didn't look as smooth as the pros.

NFSC with royal icing.  I used the melted chocolate method to put cookies on sticks.  I made the basket from chocolate "clay."  Sister loved it all!

11 x 15 dark chocolate cake with oreo cream cheese filling, chocolate buttercream icing sprinkled with crushed oreos.  Decorated with fondant/gumpaste tombstone, girm reaper, hands, head, and rock.  Thank you to various CCers who I borrowed ideas from for this cake.  There were a lot of wonderful cakes on this theme which helped me a lot, because I'm more of a flower person myself.

Chocolate cake with chocolate ganache filling and icing. Oh, and I drenched the cake in amaretto. The decorations are white chocolate colored pink and done in a mosaic around the cake. Dark chocolate A for the woman's first name.

This is a 2 layer cake with the bottom layer being chocolate fudge cake with raspberry filling and the top being butter cake with whipped ganache filling.  It was repeated on both teirs so that people could try both flavors.  Icing and decorations were bc.  This is probably my least favorite cake that I have made recently.  It's a long story.....don't ask.
