6" stacked on 8", butter cake iced in buttercream.  The disc on top is supposed to be a CD with 2 others underneath it.  Started this one at 4 AM so I guess it could be worse....

The only request for this order was chocolate cake filled with bananas & strawberries, decorated "anyway you want". I used the ribbon for the pattern, fondant flowers and bow, royal icing letters painted with luster dust.

Firstly, I was completely inspired by the amazing original designer of the "Pink Whimsy" cake done by the company Sugar Creations. Unbelieveable!! I used the middle tier from that gorgeous cake and some of the design elements too. 

Basically, I was happy to use up all the scrap bits of coloured fondant I have and the tiny flowers/butterflies etc from other projects. My first bow using fondant instead of gumpaste. I don't prefer it. I like the quick-drying gumpaste better I think.

What a funky wedding! Everything was in black and white with circles...the menus, the vases, tables & linens. I do LOVE a theme!

I was so excited when the bride asked for this cake. Apparently it was Ashton & Demi's wedding cake design last year. It is a design from a Chicago company called "Take the Cake", but I can't seem to locate their website to confirm that?

The tiers are each 6.5" tall. It took 2 of us to fondant and smooth the 5 tiers of 4",6",8",10" and 12". 4 hours to decorate with circles!

This was for a mom who enjoyed the 70's.  My only instructions were to make it a little funky.  I tried!  I like the tye-dye effect on the blanket. :)  The lady who ordered it was very pleased.

First try using fondant and making a bow. I used MMF, which I found to be much tastier than the prepackaged Wilton fondant. Next time, the fondant needs to be thinner, I need to make more loops for the bow, and I need to be sure to let everything sit for at least 24 hours.

This was for my cousin's sweet 16.  She wanted pink & black and for it to be 'funky'.  3 tiers of yellow cake.  I made the dark chocolate MMF using Hersey's Special Dark Cocoa that someone posted in the forums (sorry I don't remember who it was).  It tastes like tootsie rolls and is already black - no coloring added.  Everything you see that's pink is buttercream and everything black is the chocolate MMF.  I used silver dragees as accents.

This cake accompanied the main wedding cake. I wanted the bride to have something that represented her funkiness. She has lots of tattoos and is very artsy. I put her and her groom's names across the middle. The cake topper is supposed to look like a tattoo design. The perriwinkle sections coordinate this cake with the main one.

This is a birthday cake for a friend's daughter.  I got my inspiration from another cake on this site.  I changed the colors and pattern and mine doesn't compare in skill to the other but I had so much fun doing it.  This is my first fondant cake.

Young lady wanted something funky and colorful, maybe tie dye so this is what I came up with.  Used 10" yellow cake and 3 6" choc. cakes w/BC frosting.  Cut cake board to mirror odd shape of cake and used a generous sprinkling of disco dust to finish it.  Fun cake to do!

The young lady's mum asked for something funky coloured. I suggested a pink and green purse and she pretty much let me do whatever I liked (aren't they the best customers!!)

A 4, 8, and 12 in. cake covered in bc with fondant accents.  Did the draping effect around each tier and made the bows to stand up.  It was for four kids birthdays at the same time, so we thought they would all like this.  I also made four individual cakes  and if the pics turn out ok I will post them later.  Thanks for looking!

The order was pretty simple - funky colours and one of those 'wonky' cakes. Other than that I could do what I wanted, as long as no age was mentioned anywhere on it! I was in tears in the early stage of this one, it was my first real disaster story. Came out OK in the end though. TFL!

This cake was for my son's wedding.  I have a long way to go but he loved it.    I made the top out of polymer clay - it is a likeness of the two of them.
