This was for a reunion of everyone who had attended this elementary school which was closed in 1970 and torn down.  It is my best replica made from memory and a couple of very old photos with the school in the background.

Did this cake for a friend's 10-year old for his birthday.  He loves skylines and skyscrapers as well as Spiderman so we combined the two.

This is a cake I was asked to make for a man that works in the building industry.
It is chocolate mud cake, with poured chocolate icing and white chocolate between the bricks. The trowel is made of gumpaste and placed in a gumpaste tray with royal icing in it. Thank you very much to the people that helped me with the trowel, your suggestions were fantastic!!! Thanks for looking, Mel

This cake was made for my nephew's birthday party a while back.  Found it in old photos and decided to post.

4 layers, yellow cake with banana cream filling. buttercream icing with fondant accents (with magnet figurine) I have 2 different cakes to do for the same person. One is a New York theme (i'll also have the Chrysler building and Brooklyn Bridge) and one will be sun, moon, and stars. I was practicing them both on one cake, as i've never done the buildings before and don't know how hard they'll be when i get there.

I made this for my dad's surprise 60th birthday party.  He likes the movie The Towering Inferno, and I thought it might make a good idea for a cake.  The fire truck is a pound cake, and the building is 3 tiers: white w/raspberry filling, yellow w/ apricot filling, and chocolate w/ ganache.  All iced in buttercream.

My son David wanted me to make him a cake for a book report that he was doing,  I told him to pick out his favorite scene and we would work on it.  Originally it was the Aunts being squished which would have been MUCH easier, but then he got his heart set on the peach landing on the Empire state Building.  Man was that a challenge,  got it to the school ok and ran before I could see anything happen to it....curious 4th graders, falls, droops, cracks...etc.  Pretty proud still.

This one was a challenge! This was done for a lady relocating to Washington D.C. (The National Mall) Lincoln Memorial, reflecting pool, Washington Monument, grass area, and the Capitol Building. Of course it's not an exact replica, but I was happy with the turn out. The airbrushing was a last minute idea because I didn't have time to the steps, bushes, trees, etc.

I started my summer job at my county's Dept. of Public Works office 3 weeks ago. My new boss decided that he was going to move to the Board of Ed. so we gave him a going away party. When he worked for the DPW he designed a program to create "green roofs," gravelbeds and plants growing on tops of buildings, throughout the county. So this was his going away cake -- green roof style. For some reason my blue frosting never keeps its color well. Does anyone know why?

Local YMCA was celebrating 90 years of service. They wanted a reconstruction of their building, but could not stop looking at a newspaper cake I had previously created. They were thrilled, when at delivery, I had incorporated both ideas into the design. Newspaper is mahogany chocolate/vanilla cream cakes layers with chocolate bc filling, vanilla icing covered in fondant and edible images. Building is rice crispy treats covered in 50:50 gumpaste/fondant.

The entire top is a FBCT and the buildings and the Ss on the sides are fondant. The woman said she wanted thirteen pieces of fondant on the cake so that each kid could have one to eat. This was the only thing I could come up with. I am really imbarrassed by this cake because of the mistakes I made. I did it at night so by the time I got to the border and writing it was 2 am and I was really tired. The border wasn't as straight as I would liked and my writing is not as very centered. The I realized that....

This is a cake I did for my 7 & 5 year olds party.  The bottom is Yellow cake and the top is lemon, I kept it simple for the kids.  The buildings are Chocolate (never store them in the oven and then forget about them...I melted them 4 hours before party and had to redo).  the Kryptonite on top is melted jolly ranchers broken up.  The S shield is fondant painted and then sprinkled with cake sprinkles.  i was pleased with this cake, it turned out amazingly like what I pictured...Rarely does that happen:). Thx

This is a burning skyscraper with Batman, Robin, Superman, and Wonderwoman.  It was for a friend's daughter's 7th bday.  Each layer is a different flavor cake with different fillings!  Lots of work, but she was so happy when she saw her cake!!!

I was asked by a friend to make a cake based on a photo they took while visiting a ghost town. Strawberry cake with vanilla bc tinted brown.  MMF accents and board covering.

The lighting in the room turned the roof rafters blue-ish.  Was actually black.

This is a terrible mess but a good experiment for me.  It is a 3-D cake, the buildings are cake some are frosted and some are covered in fondant. I had a terrible time with the fondant and I was running out of time. The little figures are also fondant but they came out bigger than I wanted.  The cakes stayed in building formation easily. I did not use dowels or any other support.

I made this cake for my son's first birthday.  I was using his wooden building blocks for inspiration.  After I started icing the cake I realized that my squares weren't square but because I was running late I let them stay.  Next time I will be more careful.  I used 2 8x8 layers which I quartered. It is frosted with BC.

There were so many angles to this cake as I had something different on every side.  I chose the best two.  I do not have a nice front view but it Had the three bottom blocks spelling the short form of his name and the top block had a 1 on it.  I made some mistakes on this cake and I left it to the last minute so I rushed it but I still like how it turned out even though everytime I look at it I think of everything I could have done better.

A fun birthday cake...  Themed afte Lego building blocks.  The Green Base Board was Vanilla cake with a Bavarian Cream filling.  The Blue and Red Building Blocks were baked in mini-loaf pans and the Yellow block was a small square pan.

I used the pre-packaged primary colors pack of Fondant from Wilton... I found it to be very wet and hard to roll out w/o sticking, but we got through it.
