This was the cake for my son's 5h birthday.  He specifically asked for a cowboy cake with cactus on it so this is what I came up with.  He really liked it!

This was my first attempt with the MMF, would definitely try it again, I love the flexibility of it and although I don't particularly care for marshmallows, it tasted a whole lot better than Wilton's fondant, that stuff is nasty.  I was pleased with this, the birthday boy loved it.

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

My first BIG fondant cake - and last! Each layer was 4 layers, everything made from scratch, it took me over 13 hours to make.  I made the critical error of not staking it (a lesson only needed to learn ONCE).  The customer picked it up, had only to go a few blocks, put it on his backseat.... the whole cake crashed.  I was absolutely heart sick when I attended the party and discovered my cake in the kitchen.  Live and learn!

A cactus cake that I threw together for a get-together that I'm going to tonight.  It's on top of a clay pot with "dirt cake" inside.  I should have bought a bigger pot.  I don't know how we're going to get it there in one piece! :-O

Fosted in BC-all other in MMF except Bluebonnet.  I couldn't get that to work-any ideas?  Lots of fun to do!

The words Feliz Cumpleanos Wesley say Happy Birthday Wesley...and because my brother-in-law always goes around saying encanta means I'm Loving It! (In Spanish) from the Mcdonalds slogan....He laughed so hard and we finally got him back by singing Happy Birthday in Spanish....the thing is none of us know Spanish except Happy Birthday because he does it do us on our birthdays!!!! ha ha

Cake for fun to put in the teacher's lounge for Cinco de Mayo.  8" top layer, choc. w/raspberry; 12" bottom, vanilla w/strawberry.  BC icing, MMF peppers and small accents.  Clock on stove says 1:56 -- that's AM.  Can we say "obsessive"? :)  Much inspiration from several cakes on CC, especially tripletmom!!!

My mom likes gardening, but didn't want a huge cake, so I came up with this.  A 6" round Cookies N' Creme cake, frosted with a chocolate buttercream crumb coat, and then decorated with vanilla buttercream using the grass tip.  Cactus is a cupcake.  White chocolate lollipop flowers with fondant leaves.

This is a chocolate cake decorated in buttercream icing.  It was done for my husband's parents who both work in the horse industry.  They live out of town so we didn't see them on Mother's Day or Father's Day, so I thought I'd do a combined cake.

This cake was made for a little boy's 7th birthday he wanted red cactus flowers on his cake.  The entire top of the cake is covered in graham cracker crumbs.  The hills are made from cupcakes, as is the larger cactus on the right.  The cactus thorns are made from raw spaghetti, the bugs are rubber toys.  I love this cake!

White cake, FBCT of the Three Cabaleros. It was so hot that day, by the time we got it to the lake (about a 2 hours later) it wasn't looking so great anymore. Im glad that I got a pic of it before then.

My take on the Colette Peters cactus cake.  I made all the thorns with royal icing, but the cake is carrot cake with cream cheese icing.  I hate how the flower turned out, but I didn't have time to make a second one.

I made this cake for an engagement party my brother threw for some friends.  Thanks to doofusmongerbeep and for the inspiration. The round cake is Key Lime (man did that turn out good!) and the square cake is vanilla butter cake.  BC for all icing except sombrero that was done with MMF...  (I need to work on the drying technique for the brim)  Peppers are done with red plastic chocolate.  Enjoy!!

This was for a 6 year old who wanted a "Fiesta" themed birthday party.  It is a 10" round 2-layer strawberry cake with buttercream icing and decorations, and fondant red peppers.  This was inspired by an old Wilton year book and changed to better suit the birthday girl's tastes.

I made this for my Uncle's birthday.  He has always loved the desert and so I thought he would like this cake.

The needles took forever to put on!  Made out of royal icing.  The book said to make 300 but I went through over 1000 between all of them in the cake the ones that broke.  

Cake is French Vanilla with Apricot filling and buttercream icing.

Bride and Groom wanted a highway themed Harley cake for their wedding.  Frosted in buttercream, fondant road, cacti made from royal icing on spaghetti, trees made from royal on pretzel sticks, roses made from gumpaste on spaghetti, birds also made from gumpaste on spaghetti, with edible image plaques of Harley logos.  Sand is brown sugar. The idea of the cake is for the bottom tier to be the desert, middle tier to be mountains, and top tier to be the sky, with the road winding around each tier.

Got this idea from ShirleyW, original design by Wilton. My housemate was turning 21 and requested a Mexican themed cake, this was perfect. We filled the glasses with lemonade prior to celebrating so the four of us could toast, very fun. Its a four layered marble cake with crusting buttercream.

WASC cake with BC, Chocolate BC and Cherry Koolaide BC. The Cactus is fondant on a skewer with spaghetti noodles for the prickles.  Did this for my cousin's little boy. A lot of work but just as much fun.  Thanks to all who posted a version of this cake, you were a great inspiration.
