I made this for a birthday party at my house this weekend. We ate crabs.  I made crab shaped sugar cookies but took the picture before putting them in the basket.  Cake was strawberry torted and filled with cream cheese icing (my husband's favorite) lightly sprayed with red color and fondant wood slats.

This cake won the Governor's cake class at the State Fair.  My family and I got to me the Governor because of this one!  Layered white cake with buttercream.  Sprayed wilton coloring under the fondant slats.  Slats brushed with cocoa powder for coloring.  Crabs were molded fondant sprayed with wilton coloring.  The cake had to be in the theme of Maryland and of course "Maryland is for Crabs!"

This is a different version of my bushel of crabs cake.  I made this for my MIL's sister for her 60th birthday back in July.  The crabs are fondant (Satin Ice) sprayed with wilton red and orange.  The cake is chocolate with buttercream and fondant slats brushed with cocoa powder.  It was a big hit.  The kids loved eating the crabs!

A friend wanted this for her DJ boyfriend, and this was definitely a first for me!  I used fondant for all of the decorations, and just made two 8" rounds, and placed them side by side.  For the microphone, I used Rice Krispie treats, and then covered it with fondant, and painted it with Luster Dust.  She wanted a crab around because he sometimes gets "crabby"...

I made this cake for my bff's 40th birthday.  We were having a crab feast so this was a nice ending for the meal.  I got some ideas from other people on this site (thank you) and used some of my own. Some of the crabs are fondant and some are melted, colored white chocolate. It was alot of fun to make.

Client requested a "Cake for Two" (6") playful beach themed sand castle cake for 50th anniversary.  I asked if a crab couple would be fun and she agreed!  It was fun to make and easy.  Chocolate Shells, Fondant Critters and Brown Sugar Sand.  Top tier is a ice cream cone.

The cake is marble, iced in buttercream.  The brown "paper" and crab mallets are fondant, the crabs are candy melts, the beer cans are candles with the wicks cut off and the mugs are plastic filled with yellow piping gel and topped with buttercream.

I made this for my office's August birthday celebration.  I was trying to think of something summery, and I'm in Maryland, and nothing is more summery than crabs and beer!

You know you're a cake decorating addict when you make cupcakes to decorate when there is some free time between cake orders!  I experimented with MMF for these cupcakes.  Added store bought sea life gummies

This was the first attempt at the mermaid and crab, and, during the Christmas rush, no less. But, I found the mermaid to be so much easier than I had anticipated.

Made for Crawfish boil party. It's 1/2 sheet cake made of 70+ cupcakes w/ B/C then covered with tablecloth made of marzipan & sprayed w/lines. Used waferpaper "newsprint" w/ friendly news! Made marzipan, lemons, garlic & sausages, & marzipan chocolate covered Crawfish, Crab & Potatoes. Also made Zatarains box out of chocolate with wafer paper for details &  filled with nerds w/ small opening so people were eating them right out of the box.  Just a few feet away the real thing, it was great fun!

I wanted to do something tropical for this birthday cake- the colorflow pieces are so very delicate though, 
It will be a while I think before I do that again, but in the end I did get the results I was looking for.
I traced the outline for the crabs and fish from a coloring book onto the wrong side of regular wax paper and 
did the colorflow on the opposite side, Happy Birthday Dana!

I made this cake for my father's 70th birthday last weekend.  It is a journey through the four states that he has lived in - starting in Wisconsin, California, Alaska and then Maryland.  The postcards are edible images on fondant.  Cake is covered in buttercream with fondant accents.  I'll post some follow-up pictures of each side of the cake as you can't see everything at the same time.

This cake was for my girlfirends daughter who was turning 2 this past weekend and just LOVES fish.  Iced with buttercream with krispy treat fish on top covered with MMF.  Fish on the side, crab and treasure chest are all MMF as well.  It is hard to see from the photo, but there is a large piece of coral behind the fish that is also krispy treats covered in MMF and then covered with large white rock sugar.

My sister told me she wanted a beach themed cake with maybe a beach ball for her two daughter's birthday party.  So YAY I got to take artistic license.  I saw a beach cake on here where a lady make RI transfers of her grandkids and that inspired me to my MMF figures of my nieces.  The crab, the beach ball, the beach blanket, and the sandals are all MMF too.  The sand is cookies, the fence is RI and the shells are candy melt.  She wanted it to look like Myrtle Beach, SC also I had so much fun with this cake!
