This was just a fun cake for a friend.  His 13 year old daughter was celebrating her 1/2 birthday.  I decided to do a 1/2 cake.  I froze it and then cut off a hunk of it.  I didn't want the cut side of the cake to dry out so I used choc. BC and iced the flat side and then used crushed Oreo's to simulate the cake's texture.  To continue along with the 1/2 b-day theme, the actual cake is layered 1/2 white and 1/2 chocolate.  I was excited to figure out how to make the cut side of the cake look realistic.

This was for a girl's 13th birthday. She was the daughter of a friend of my husbands - turns out she'd never had a birthday cake before! I almost cried. Anyway, this one was inspired by the Whimsical Bakehouse.

Made for a friend of mine for her grandmother's 85th birthday party!  My inspiration was the Fiesta cakes done by TripletMom - as you can tell since this is almost an exact close as I could get it!  Sombrero, Chiles and Serape are made from fondant

I made this cake for a girl who just had surgery.  It is a spin off of a Scooby Doo cake from the Wilton Yearbook.  I didn't have the flower press though so I had to wing it.  Some of the flowers are running together so I learned to always have the press or some sort of pattern!  Other than that I'm happy with it.

This was a double layer 1/2 sheet cake for a friend turning 21. It is buttercream icing with fondant ribbon, bow, and dots.  It was a lot of fun to do and she loved the bright colors.

I just wanted to add this picture, because I was searching this site for an example of a 30th birthday cake for a man, and couldn't find one that I could use.  Most of the cakes were for women, or were very elaborate & this cake only needed to serve 7 & also had to travel with my friend for an hour in the car.... so, I hope this helps someone in the future, to find a simple idea!  =)

This was done for a 60th class reunion.  It's a replica of the old school  they went to which is no longer here.  Everything edible: except the flag.   fondant windows, doors, and trim.  Trees are cake and rocks are candy.   This was a huge cake took two men to carry it.

I was nervous doing this cake because when the customer came in and told me what she wanted, she kept saying that she wants it to be perfect and wonderful for her mom and then she started crying-which in turn made me cry! Anyway, all buttercream with the exception of fondant daisies.  Thanks to lacielou76 for doing the roses ahead of time for one of her cakes and letting me snag a few for mine.

Customer wanted something bright and flowery.  This was my first time to use a diamond impression mat and I really loved using it.  The cake is an 8" two layer round with BC.  The buterfly is a paper cutout, glittered and covered in contact paper.  They customer came by my office and said it was the best cake and everyone loved it.  Just made my day!!!!!!!!!!!

This is the cake that gave me so much grief.  But the fine folks here at CC saw me through this project (into the wee hours i might add)  Thanks from my heart!  My SIL was very pleased.  The middle tier says "have a beautiful life baby henry", this was for his dedication ceremony.  Top tier, scratch freckled mocha cake with baileys irish cream mousse, middle tier scratch chocolate butter cake with cookies and cream filling, and bottom golden butter cake with raspberry amaretto buttercream.

I made this cake for a 30th Birthday, she likes butterfies.  I was so stuck, they asked me at the last minute and all they said was make something with a butterfly on it.  They were coming to pick the cake up at 9:30 this morning and at 12:00 am I still had no idea what to do.  I got on this site and researched butterflies and thanks to LisaMS, this was the end result.  I hope you're not upset that I copied your cake but I was desperate, and you were my life saver.

First birthday cake for a friend. He is an Elmo fanatic. I tried to get this to look like Elmo's world as much as possible, but I was rushed because of a family emergency so I had to deliver it early. The little cake on the side is the smash cake. All of this was done freehand watching the Elmo's world video over, and over, and over again.    Elmo's world, Elmo's world, La la la la, La la la la, Elmo's world

This the the first real cake decorating I've tried. I was quite happy with it although I would do a few things differently next time. I did it for my 16 yr. old daughter who loves frogs and cats. It was fun....and I love this site!

I think this is one of my favoret cakes to date.  It is just so bright and cheery.  It was my take on one of the wilton yearbook cover cakes, sorry don't remember wich one.  Took a lot longer than I thought it would but I think it was worth it. It was confetti bunt cake with fondant covering and flowers and swirls in gumpast.

marble cake, buttercream frosting.  Can anyone tell me if humidity plays a role in frosting success?  This just wouldn't smooth...didn't seem right from the mixer...i've made it a ton of times and don't know why this turned out different, except that it was very humid today...please give any suggestions...this was a bear!  Glad it's done.  Seemed like such a simple idea.

Made for my grandmother's best friend.  They belong to a ladies group called PEO and their flower is the daisy.  I had just loaded up at Hobby Lobby with my 50% off coupon so I wanted to try out a bunch of my new fondant tools.

This was my entry in the Oklahoma Sugar Art Show for 2005. My first time to enter any competition. The cake had to be inspired and designed by a wedding gown. The wedding gown I chose was from India and was the same color pink as the cake with the same decoration. I earned a silver division for this cake. Thanks for looking!!

I added extra long candles in between the blue dots which looked really nice.  My roommate loved it so that's all that matters!

8" buttercream cake with fondant flowers.  The only direction I was given for this cake was that the recipient liked bright colors.

Okay so its stacked cake 2.0 I love it more than the first one I did, a lot more really. I am still having trouble getting a good clean sharp "line" between the cakes, it always kind of curves down to the bottom layer. I wanted something bright today so this is that! Any and all constructive advice and comments are more than welcome. I am just scared I am not making progress, like I am stuck in my learning!
